Students getting safety down to a fine art

Primary school students from across Victoria have put coloured pencil to paper and shone a spotlight on bus safety in the 2021 Transdev Melbourne School Bus Safety Poster Competition.

Judges were impressed to see safety-conscious sea creatures, cautious cacti, and heavenly angels bought to life by the imaginations of Victorian primary school children to raise awareness about safe travel behaviours.

Jane Murray, Head of Customer Experience and Communication said, “Our safety competition challenges students to communicate safe travel behaviours in a way that is meaningful to them and that will make kids their age sit up and pay attention.

“The competition is a fun way of starting a safety discussion with young people to ensure they understand their role in bus safety and are prepared when it comes time for them to catch the bus.”

This year’s competition asked students to create a poster based around the themes of bus safety in wet weather and safety at bus stops.

The judging panel had a difficult time deciding the winners, but it was the entries that clearly and creatively communicated their safety messages that really caught everyone’s eye.

Prizes were awarded in three age groups – prep to year 2, years 3 & 4, and years 5 & 6 and Transdev Melbourne staff awarded a special Journey Maker Award in each category chosen by popular vote.

Transdev operates more than 120 school bus services across Melbourne, and we are proud to have continued operating our school bus services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that Victorian students who can’t learn from home can still get to school.
