GEORGE NEWS - The Go George bus service is ready to reinstate the last two routes that have been suspended during Covid-19 lockdown. From Sunday 4 October, routes 58 Heather Park - Heatherlands and 53B Rosemoor Express will run according to the normal schedule again.
Drivers and passengers are still required to wear masks on the bus and wash or sanitise their hands regularly. Dispensers with sanitiser have been installed on all buses for the convenience and safety of passengers.
At the George Link depot, the rigorous cleaning and sanitising regime stays unchanged and the interior of buses are sanitised before and after every duty.
Global studies have shown that proper ventilation and short trips can greatly reduce the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus on buses and trains by mitigating the spread of airborne droplets that carry the virus.
In line with these findings, our government's Covid directives regarding public transport require the windows of all public transport vehicles to be kept open 5cm on both sides. All windows are opened when buses leave the depot, and passengers are requested not to close windows, but rather dress warmly.
For more information, please phone the Go George Call Centre on 0800 044 044 where agents are on duty from 05:00 until 20:00 seven days a week.
