GO GEORGE passengers delighted about timetables and maps at bus stops

Pole collars

Two delighted GO GEORGE passengers finding their way on the new pole collars at the George Transport Hub on Monday. Nellie Rollinson (left) and Koba Pieterse say it is easy to determine when the next bus will arrive, following the simple instructions on the pole collar sticker.

GO GEORGE has started applying the latest pole collar stickers displaying route maps and timetables at the transfer bus stops last week. This follows the finalisation of the current bus routes after months of refining and improving routes and schedules to suit passengers’ needs.

Each bus stop has its own unique set of stickers, displaying the timetables and route maps of only those routes that stop there. On the one side is a line map of the routes stopping at that particular stop, and a system map giving the passenger an overview of where the different routes run and where they can transfer between routes to reach their destination. A red arrow on both maps indicates that particular bus stop (“You are here”).

The other side of the pole collar shows the complete timetables for all the routes that stop at that specific bus stop, with enough information to calculate when the next bus should arrive.  Instructions on how to read and interpret the tables are included and easy to follow. The timetables and route maps have always been available on the GO GEORGE website, but having them available for everyone to see right at the bus stop, will enable passengers to plan their bus trips better, and even to have an estimated time of arrival of the next bus.

For any enquiries about the bus service, phone the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044 or visit the Facebook page.
