Sunday 22 September has been set aside worldwide as annual Car-free Day to remind the world population that there are alternative ways to get from point A to point B – be that by foot, by cycling or, here in George, by using the convenient GO GEORGE bus service.
There are currently more than one billion motor vehicles on the roads, world-wide, with the inescapable impact that has on pollution when each individual uses his/her car to get to work.
Public transport in South Africa is high priority for our Government and aimed at getting people to be less dependent on their cars, thereby limiting air pollution.
Catch a bus to church, or celebrate the start of school holidays with a family outing for the kids!
There are bus routes to:
- Botanical Gardens – take a picnic!
- Transport Museum – see shiny, old steam engines!
- Tenpin Bowling – challenge the youngsters!
- Garden Route Mall – for a movie or a milkshake!
Phone 0800 044 044 for help to plan your trip, or find the routes and timetables on the homepage.
