George Local Municipality’s vision is to keep George clean, safe, and green for all citizens.

After successful trials, the Go George public transport system’s route is being expanded with additional infrastructures such as bus shelters and an undercover public transport hub. This well-run DA-led municipality consistently receives clean audits and works hard to bring better services to all residents – especially residents in poor communities.
