Universal access

The GO GEORGE system has been designed to ensure that it is as accessible as possible for passengers with a wide variety of needs. This is in line with national policy for new South African public transport systems, such as GO GEORGE.

On most routes, sidewalks at bus stops are raised to reduce the height between the sidewalk and the bus-floor boarding platforms. This provides easy entry for people in wheelchairs, people with prams, young children and the elderly.

Tactile paving, which is raised, is used at the stops to make it easier for visually impaired people to identify the bus stop area. Guide dogs and special assistive animals will be permitted on the buses, but no other animals.
