Fasten your seatbelt or, in this case, hold on to your tickets – we're about to take a wild ride through the 2022-23 year that was. With the collaborative efforts of train, ferry, and bus operators, Transperth's Community Education team has been on a mission to make public transport more accessible, safer and fun for everyone. From train platforms to digital platforms, here’s some of the highlights:
We often receive feedback from happy teachers and schools who have used our services. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“Absolutely fantastic experience with the Transperth Team. The support and guidance by staff members made for a seamless journey, alleviating any concerns about getting lost or missing a stop - will highly recommend this service to colleagues for future excursions.” Teacher – Warnbro
“Dave McMahon was an excellent speaker and guide on public transport. The kids were so engaged and loved his sense of humour and knowledge about all things Transperth. He worked so well with all the kids, from our non-verbal students to our students who love to talk (and helped us adults learn a few new things as well!). He fielded all our questions excellently. It was such a wonderful experience, one that I would recommend to any classes wanting to start community access on public transport. Thank you!” – Teacher, Gwynne Park ESC
“Staff were amazing through the entire process. We were escorted through the stations and were given positive feedback from staff along the way about the behaviour of our students. Great experience.” – Teacher, Youth Futures Community School
We asked teachers why they chose to use Transperth Group Ticketing.
Overall satisfaction for the group ticketing experience was 97.5 per cent, while 98.6 per cent of Group Ticketing users would recommend it to others and 98.6 per cent would use it again.
It's been a fantastic journey, and we can’t wait to work with more schools and communities in 2024.
