GO GEORGE takes Smart Card to the people

With the new GO GEORGE Smart Card becoming available on 15 October 2018, George residents are encouraged to get their cards in time for 15 November, the big day when passengers will start using the card on the bus.

In addition to the four permanent Smart Card kiosks and one temporary distribution point, two Smart Card mobile vehicles will be travelling to different parts of town on a fixed weekly schedule, from 15 October onwards. This is a permanent service which will not only sell Smart Cards but will also take a top-up service to passengers who don't often get to the kiosks or Smart Card top-up vendors. 
"We realise that not everybody will be able to get to a kiosk, so, to ensure this new system benefits all our passengers, we are moving into the communities with our mobile vehicles," said James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager.

"The Smart Card mobile vehicle schedule has been designed to do more shifts in areas without a kiosk close by. The fact that this is a fixed schedule – initially between 12:00 and 20:00, seven days a week – means that people can plan ahead to visit the vehicle at a specific location, at a specific time. Once they have their Smart Cards, passengers can visit a vehicle to top up their cards with trips. Our mobile vehicles are simply Smart Card kiosks on wheels and will offer the same services as the kiosks," Robb said.

During the introductory period, mornings are being kept open on the mobile schedule to accommodate special requests from businesses or organisations for a vehicle to stop by and sell Smart Cards to their staff. Any business owner, manager or school principal with a large number of bus passengers is welcome to phone 0800 044 044 or send an email to info@gogeorge.org.za to set up an appointment.

The mobile schedule in the form of a leaflet is available from GO GEORGE communication champions and the Info Kiosk at the Transport Hub, as well as on the website www.gogeorge.org.za, or the GO GEORGE Facebook page.

The two GO GEORGE Smart Card mobile vehicles are literally Smart Card kiosks on wheels. The sprinter minibus and truck are clearly branded and will be spotted easily where they park. Both will offer exactly the same services: selling Smart Cards and sorting out problems with passengers' cards, as well as selling trip top-ups.

GO GEORGE neem Slimkaart na die mense

Met die nuwe GO GEORGE Slimkaart wat vanaf 15 Oktober 2018 te koop sal wees, word George-inwoners aangemoedig om hul kaarte betyds te kry vir 15 November, die groot dag wanneer passasiers sal begin om die kaart op die bus te gebruik.

Bykomend tot die vier permanente Slimkaartkiosks en een tydelike kaartverspreidingspunt, sal twee Slimkaart-mobiele voertuie vanaf 15 Oktober na verskillende dele van die dorp ry volgens ’n vaste weeklikse skedule. Hierdie is ’n permanente diens wat nie net Slimkaarte sal verkoop nie, maar ook die herlaaidiens sal neem na passasiers wat nie dikwels by die kiosks of Slimkaartherlaaipunte kan uitkom nie.
"Ons besef dat nie alle passasiers by ’n kiosk kan uitkom nie. Om te verseker dat hierdie stelsel tot al ons passasiers se voordeel sal wees, beweeg ons dus in ons gemeenskappe in met ons mobiele voertuie," sê James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder.

"Die Slimkaart- mobiele voertuig-skedule is ontwerp om meer skofte te doen in gebiede wat nie ’n kiosk naby het nie. Die feit dat hierdie ’n vaste skedule is – aanvanklik tussen 12:00 en 20:00, sewe dae per week – beteken dat mense vooruit kan beplan om ’n voertuig op ’n bepaalde tyd by ’n bepaalde stilhouplek te besoek. As hulle eers hul Slimkaarte het, kan passasiers altyd die voertuig besoek om hul Slimkaarte te herlaai met ritte. Ons mobiele voertuie is letterlik Slimkaartkiosks op wiele en sal dieselfde dienste as die kiosks bied," sê Robb.

Gedurende die bekendstellingstydperk sal oggende op die mobiele skedule oopgehou word vir spesiale versoeke van besighede of organisasies dat ’n mobiele voertuig ’n draai kom maak om Slimkaarte aan hul personeel te verkoop. Enige besigheidseienaar, bestuurder of skoolhoof met ’n groot aantal buspassasiers is welkom om 0800 044 044 te skakel of ’n e-pos te stuur aan info@gogeorge.org.za om ’n afspraak te reël.

Die mobiele skedule in pamfletvorm is beskikbaar by GO GEORGE-passasiersdiensbeamptes en die inligtingskiosk by die George-vervoerkern (Hub), asook op die webblad www.gogeorge.org.za, of die GO GEORGE Facebook-blad.

Albei bied presies dieselfde dienste: die verkoop van Slimkaarte en hantering van kaartprobleme, sowel as die herlaai van ritte.
