In an effort to break down barriers and build positive relationships between Transit Officers and young people, the second round of the Right Track Reward Card campaign is about to kick off.
The Right Track Hip Hop finale took place last Friday at the One Step Closer program in Armadale. This time PTA Transit Officer Lawrence Hoxey was joined by Transit Officer Jordan Keilar and the pair rap battled before Lawrence performed some of his latest tracks for the youth. It seemed everyone wanted to be involved - with One Step Closer staff rap battling it out themselves!
If you’ve been using the train recently then you may already be aware of the Right Track Reward Card campaign. The campaign which launched earlier this month and runs until 4 July 2016, aims to reward young people for doing the right thing when they’re out on the rail network.
The young people at Kelmscott Senior High School learnt all about public transport safety last week when they had a visit from PTA (Public Transport Authorities) Transit Officers and Swan Transit Bus Drivers.
Speaking to more than 240 year 7 students across two days, the Right Track program was able to make sure that the young people were educated not only on the consequences of incidents such as fare evasion and rock throwing but also on the zone system and how to use their smart rider card.
