Pioneering a Small-Town Transport System

The provincial government of South Africa's Western Cape was consulting with the people in the town of George about public transportation services before high profile public transportation projects in Johannesburg and Cape Town garnered attention. George, a growing town, is set to have its own integrated public transportation soon. A system several years in the making, it should open up new markets and economic opportunities. Public education and involvement included easy to read pamphlets and comic strips raising awareness of the benefits of enhanced public transportation; use of surveys and focus groups; and informational venues, such and information center in the heart of George. An insert provides detail on how the population of George was involved in developing the city's new public transportation system.
