Chilly winter temperatures and rainy, windy weather aren’t just an annoying side-effect of the change of seasons, they also serve as a reminder that being safe around the rail network is just as important in the colder months. The next time you’re at a railway station or a pedestrian crossing during wet weather, make sure you do your best to adjust to the conditions – and we don’t just mean bring an umbrella.
Don’t Mess With Bus is an exciting bus safety program for primary and secondary students. Whether you’re a pedestrian, pensioner, pavement-pounder, push bike rider or a passenger, there’s something everyone can learn from Don’t Mess With Bus.

If you’re a regular follower of our blog then you may remember the Right Track Hip Hop events we ran as part of Community Safety Month towards the end of last year. The events were such a huge hit that we decided to bring them back for 2016! Transit Officer Lawrence Hoxey and his crew came down to the One Step Closer program in Armadale on Friday nights throughout April to deliver those important rail safety messages using hip hop, rap and different musical instruments. The youth got involved with rap battles and built a rapport with Lawrence which helps to break down those barriers between young people and Transit Officers out there on the network.
