We've got your kids covered

We’ve helped thousands of parents teach their children how to conveniently and safely travel on our buses, trains and ferries. We’re here to help make your child’s move to independent travel as simple as possible, while making sure all your questions are answered.

How can I help my child make this move?

Start talking with your child about public transport. Ask them what they already know and what they’re curious about. Make sure your child feels comfortable asking you, or our helpful staff, if they are ever unsure of anything. We understand that letting your child travel independently is a big step. That’s why we offer helpful and practical guidance, to make sure their journey (and yours) is as easy as possible.
