Hopefully most of you were lucky enough to meet Rail Safety Ambassador Jonathan Beninca over the last couple of weeks. Perhaps he came to your school or youth organisation or maybe you met him at the Right Track Dance Party or BBQ.

Right Track Dance Party - with a special guest!

The second Right Track Dance Party took place on Friday 18 March at Gosnells PCYC and this time we were joined by a special guest! Rail Safety Ambassador Jonathan Beninca who is in Perth to deliver rail safety presentations to young people in the area, also attended on the night. Not only did Jonathan speak to the youth about the importance of staying safe on and around public transport and the consequences of risk taking behaviour, he also got involved with some of the games and activities – which included choosing the best boy and girl dancer on the night.

Kelmscott Senior High School Year 7’s are on the Right Track!

Kelmscott Senior High School Year 7’s are on the Right Track!

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.

Get to know your Transit Officers

Get to know your Transit Officers

You’re all probably familiar with what a Transit Officer (TO) looks like and perhaps you already know a bit about the job that they do – such as maintaining a safe and secure environment for passengers, conducting ticket inspections and providing information and assistance about Transperth train, bus and ferry services. You may also be aware that Transit Officers have similar legal authority and powers as police officers when detaining offenders on Public Transport Authority (PTA) property.
