GO GEORGE preparing to roll out phase 4B

GO GEORGE PREPARING TO ROLL OUT PHASE 4B

Since the announcement last week that the GO GEORGE bus service will finally roll out to Conville, Parkdene, Ballotsview, Borcherds and Lawaaikamp on Sunday 22 March 2020, it’s been all hands on deck to ensure a smooth entry this time, after the planned roll-out in April last year had been postponed three days prior to roll-out.

According to James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager, the entire team is ready to go. “Roll-out plans were actioned the minute the announcement came through; the excitement and energy levels in our offices and meetings are palpable – we want to take the buses to the people!” he said.

“We realise that the community were bitterly disappointed when the planned roll-out did not take place last year, but we hope to be received with the same enthusiasm as before, when our communication champions return to visit their neighbourhoods shortly.”

Four routes

The four routes will cover Parkdene – CBD (Route 15), Parkdene – Garden Route Mall (Route 16), Parkdene – Blanco (Route 18), and a comprehensive community route (Route 51) covering the streets of Conville, Parkdene, Ballotsview, Lawaaikamp and Borcherds. This will connect these neighbourhoods with existing GO GEORGE routes operating in and between the CBD, Pacaltsdorp, Denneoord, Loerie Park, Rosemoor, Blanco, Heatherlands, Heather Park, and the Garden Route Mall.

Door-to-door visits

The GO GEORGE team of Communication Champions will start with a first round of door-to-door visits within the next week, refreshing the community’s knowledge and understanding of how to use the bus service and once again handing out printed information. The handy user guide and timetable brochures will enable prospective passengers to plan their routes and trips. At the same time, the GO GEORGE communications team will visit clinics, libraries and central places of gathering to reach larger groups with this information, and answer their questions.

Contact GO GEORGE by phoning the Call Centre (0800 044 044), via email (info@gogeorge.org.za), or like the GO GEORGE Facebook page to stay up to date with developments.

GO GEORGE BEREI VOOR OM FASE 4B UIT TE ROL

Sedert die aankondiging verlede week dat die GO GEORGE-busdiens uiteindelik sal uitrol na Conville, Parkdene, Ballotsview, Borcherds en Lawaaikamp op Sondag 22 Maart 2020, is almal aan dek om hierdie keer 'n gladde toetrede te verseker, nadat die beplande ontplooiing in April verlede jaar drie dae voor die tyd uitgestel is.

Volgens James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder, is die hele span gereed om weg te spring. "Uitrolplanne is geaktiveer die oomblik toe die aankondiging deurkom; die opwinding en energievlakke in ons kantore en vergaderings is tasbaar – ons wil die busse na die mense toe neem!” sê hy.

"Ons besef die gemeenskap was bitterlik teleurgesteld verlede jaar toe die beplande ontplooiing nie plaasvind nie, maar ons hoop om met dieselfde entoesiasme as die vorige keer ontvang te word wanneer ons passasiersdiensbeamptes (champions) binnekort weer die woonbuurte besoek."

Vier roetes

Die vier roetes is Parkdene – CBD (roete 15), Parkdene – Garden Route Mall (roete 16), Parkdene – Blanco (roete 18), en 'n omvattende gemeenskapsroete (roete 51) wat die strate van Conville, Parkdene, Ballotsview, Lawaaikamp en Borcherds sal deurkruis. Dit sal hierdie woonbuurte verbind met bestaande GO GEORGE-roetes wat in en tussen die middedorp, Pacaltsdorp, Denneoord, Rosemoor, Blanco, Heatherlands, Heatherpark en die Garden Route Mall ry.

Deur-tot-deur besoeke

Die GO GEORGE-passasiersdiensbeamptes sal binne die volgende week met 'n eerste rondte van deur-tot-deur besoeke begin om die gemeenskap se kennis en begrip van die busdiens te verfris en weer gedrukte inligtingsmateriaal uit te deel. Die handige gebruikersgids en tydroosters sal voornemende passasiers in staat stel om hul roetes en reise te beplan. Terselfdertyd sal die GO GEORGE-kommunikasiespan klinieke, biblioteke en sentrale plekke van samekoms besoek om groter groepe met hierdie inligting te bereik en hul vrae te beantwoord.

Kontak GO GEORGE deur die inbelsentrum by 0800 044 044 te bel, per e-pos (info@gogeorge.org.za) of volg die GO GEORGE Facebook-blad om op datum te bly met ontwikkelinge.

Onderskrif:  Die kenmerkende GO GEORGE-busse sal een van die dae ’n algemene gesig wees in die omgewing van Conville, Parkdene, Ballotsview, Borcherds en Lawaaikamp.
