Safety and security for everybody
Imagine this: You’re driving, you are on your own, and in an area you are not familiar with. You slow down, you open the door, and you are confronted with an aggressive passenger, a racist comment, or an unfriendly face.
Bus drivers are arguably the most vulnerable staff members on the network, and while Victoria has a fantastic and safe public transport system, from time to time, things that aren’t quite right happen.
Public Transport Victoria latest campaign aims to raise community awareness around staff safety, and encourage all commuters to recognise the great work our drivers and frontline members do and the integral role they play in our day to day journeys.
We want drivers to feel safe and secure in their workplace, free from aggression, violence, antisocial behaviour and racism.
Safety and security for everybody.
