From Saturday 15 December 2018, no more paper tickets will be accepted on GO GEORGE buses.
In future, the only accepted forms of payment for trips will be the GO GEORGE Smart Card with trips loaded onto the card, and for those who do not have a Smart Card, cash for a trip bought on the bus.
The current price of a cash trip is R12 and passengers are requested to keep the right amount of cash ready when boarding. However, it is faster to just tap the Smart Card and board, which contributes to the system staying on schedule.
A first Smart Card still costs only R20, including two pre-loaded trips, if a person can show a valid form of identity such as an ID card or book, passport, driver’s licence or birth certificate, or a copy thereof.
Enquiries and information
The fold-up user guide issued with your card contains all you need to know about using the Smart Card and can be obtained from all Smart Card kiosks if you have not received one.
For any enquiries about the location of Smart Card mobile vehicles, kiosks and top-up vendors or how to use the card, phone the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044.
