George Municipality announces GO GEORGE tariff increase

The George Municipality has announced the annual increase in the price of the GO GEORGE bus tickets from 1 July 2018.

According to George Municipality Spokesperson, Chantel Edwards-Klose, the increase forms part of the annual municipal tariff adjustments.

"The green single ticket bought off-bus at vendors will cost 50c more at R10.00. The price of the grey single ticket bought on the bus increases with R2.00 to R12.00, to encourage passengers to buy their tickets off bus before they board," she said.

"The multi-journey ticket (MJT) with 10 trips remains the best buy at R90 (R9 per trip) – an increase of 50c per trip.

"From 1 July 2018, vendors will sell the new tickets only – no old single tickets will be accepted after 30 June 2018. The current multi-journey tickets are valid until 30 June 2018, as printed on the front of the ticket. Passengers are reminded to use all trips on these tickets before the end of the month."
