Media release: Transdev calls on budding artists to sketch bus safety messages

Transdev Melbourne is calling on budding artists in Years 5-8 to create a poster promoting safe travel on buses for a chance to win terrific prizes.

The bus safety poster competition runs between 17 August - 25 September and aims to promote safe behaviour among school students when travelling on buses.

Loretta Lynch, Managing Director, Transdev Melbourne said; “Every day we help school students across Melbourne get to and from school safely on one of our more than 120 school bus services.

“At Transdev, safety is our number one priority. This competition helps students learn about safe behaviours when travelling in and around buses, in a fun way which challenges their creativity. We hope the competition will also be a fun activity to keep kids entertained during COVID-19.”

Alongside regular safety messages, such as keeping aisles clear or holding on to avoid slips and falls, students can also design a poster about safe travelling behaviours which help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Prizes include Nintendo Switch consoles and vouchers for books, arts and craft, stationery. Prizes will be awarded in two categories – for primary students enrolled in Years 5 and 6 and secondary students enrolled in Years 7 and 8.

A special prize called the “Journey Makers’ Choice Award” chosen by popular vote of Transdev Melbourne staff will also be awarded in each category. Winners will be announced in October.

Transdev has continued to operate full school bus services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring those Victorian students who can’t learn from home, including vulnerable students and children of essential workers, can get to school.
