GO GEORGE: Free travel days for all Smart Card holders when new routes roll out

GO GEORGE: Free travel days for all Smart Cardholders when new routes roll out

 

All GO GEORGE passengers who have Smart Cards will join in the celebration when the bus service rolls out service to Parkdene, Ballotsview, Conville, Borcherds and Lawaaikamp on Sunday 22 March 2020. Not only the passengers on the new routes will be treated to three days of free travel - all Smart Card holders, all over town, will travel for free when they show their cards upon boarding the bus from Sunday 22 March until Tuesday 24 March.

 

"We want to encourage the passengers on our new routes to get their GO GEORGE Smart Cards as soon as possible and load trips so that they are ready when the wheels start rolling their way," said James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. "It is unnecessary to pay R13 to buy a cash trip on the bus when you can pay as little as R9.50. When loading 10 trips and more at a time, the cost is R9.50 per trip, and R10.50 per trip when you load less than 10 trips – still a saving of R2.50."

 

The Smart Card team is actively recruiting top-up vendors in the areas along the new routes and GO GEORGE will announce these names as soon as they are ready to start selling trips.

 

In the meantime, passengers can buy their Smart Cards at any of the Smart Card kiosks situated at the Garden Route Mall, the Transport Hub in Cradock Street, Blanco Triangle, and York Street, as well as the two Smart Card mobile vehicles that sell cards and trips at points all over town. The new Smart Card mobile vehicle schedule has been expanded to include the areas on the new routes and will be implemented on Wednesday 4 March.

 

For buyers who can show an official form of identification, the first-card price of R21 is still valid and includes two pre-loaded trips. The normal price of the card is R25, with no pre-loaded trips.

 

For more information, such as the Smart Card mobile vehicle schedule, phone the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044, send an email to info@gogeorge.org.za or visit the GO GEORGE Facebook page where relevant and handy information is being shared continuously.

 

CAPTION:

Maryke Burts lives in Borcherds and is an old hand when it comes to using her GO GEORGE Smart Card, travelling to the CBD by taxi and then taking a bus for the last leg of her journey to work. "I can hardly wait to pay for only one trip when the buses come to my neighbourhood. And the free travel days really feels like Christmas!" she says.

 

GO GEORGE: Gratis ritte vir alle Slimkaarthouers wanneer nuwe roetes uitrol

 

Alle GO GEORGE-passasiers met Slimkaarte sal deel word van die feesviering wanneer die diens uitrol na Parkdene, Ballotsview, Conville, Borcherds en Lawaaikamp op Sondag 22 Maart 2020. Nie slegs die passasiers op die nuwe roetes sal bederf word met drie dae se gratis ritte nie – alle Slimkaarthouers, regoor die stad, sal van 22 tot 24 Maart gratis bus ry wanneer hulle hul Slimkaarte toon met die opklimslag.

 

"Ons wil die passasiers op ons nuwe roetes aanmoedig om hul GO GEORGE Slimkaarte so gou moontlik te kry en te laai met ritte sodat hulle sommer gereed is wanneer die wiele in hul rigting begin rol," sê James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder. "Dis onnodig om R13 te betaal om ’n kontantrit op die bus te koop as jy so min as R9.50 kan betaal. Wanneer ’n persoon 10 of meer ritte per keer herlaai, is die koste R9.50 per rit, en R10.50 per rit wanneer jy minder as 10 ritte laai – steeds ’n besparing van R2.50."

 

Die Slimkaartspan is aktief besig met die werwing van nuwe herlaaipunte (vendors) in die gebiede op die nuwe roetes en GO GEORGE sal hierdie name aankondig sodra hulle gereed is om ritte te begin verkoop.

 

Intussen kan passasiers hul Slimkaarte by enige van die volgende Slimkaartkiosks koop: Garden Route Mall, George-vervoerkern (Hub) in Cradockstraat, die Blanco-driehoek, in Yorkstraat, asook by die twee Slimkaartvoertuie wat kaarte en ritte verkoop by punte regoor die stad. Die nuwe skedule van die mobiele voertuie is uitgebrei om die areas op die nuwe roetes in te sluit en word op Woensdag 4 Maart geïmplementeer.

 

Vir kopers wat ’n amptelike vorm van identifikasie kan toon, geld die eerstekaartprys van R21 en sluit steeds twee voorafgelaaide ritte in. Die normale prys van die kaart is R25, sonder enige voorafgelaaide ritte.

 

Vir meer inligting, soos die nuwe mobiele voertuig-skedule, skakel gerus die GO GEORGE-inbelsentrum op 0800 044 044, stuur ’n e-pos aan info@gogeorge.org.za of besoek die GO GEORGE Facebook-blad waar relevante en handige inligting deurlopend gedeel word.

 

ONDERSKRIF:

Maryke Burts woon in Borcherds en is ’n ou hand as dit kom by die gebruik van haar Slimkaart – sy ry taxi tot in die middedorp en neem van daar af ’n bus werk toe. "Ek kan omtrent nie wag om vir net een rit te betaal wanneer die busse na my buurt toe kom nie. En die verniet ryery – dit voel soos Krismis!" sê sy.
