GO GEORGE continued to provide uninterrupted services throughout the holiday season, with special provisions for extended trips catering to shoppers and employees at the Garden Route Mall and Eden Meander shopping centres, where extended business hours were implemented.

Statistics for December 2023 reveal a significant increase in GO GEORGE bus trips, with a total of 480,854 trips recorded. This marks a notable uptick of 10% compared to the 430,799 trips registered in December 2022.

Throughout the festive season, the GO GEORGE Communication Champions, Call Centre Agents, and other frontline staff remained on duty to assist passengers with information on bus schedules and route planning. The team actively supported first-time bus users, visitors, and individuals with special needs, ensuring they could use the bus service effectively. Notably, passengers in Thembalethu were able to access the bus service for the first time since its introduction to the suburb in November.

In addition to their operational duties, the GO GEORGE communications team played a crucial role in supporting events hosted by the Municipality. They shared information about the bus service with the public, including passengers and visitors, at the annual festive welcome roadblock of the Executive Mayor and the Festival of Lights held in Pacaltsdorp.
