Passengers urged to be good eggs in new campaign
Transperth’s newest campaign is encouraging passengers to be courteous and remember their manners when catching public transport.
The Be a Good Egg campaign is rolling out across the Transperth network and targets the annoying habits that passengers complain about the most.
Among the behaviours put in the spotlight are speaking loudly on the phone and listening to loud music, eating and drinking on board, poor personal hygiene and not standing clear of the doors.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said journeys are more enjoyable when people show courtesy to one another.
“We know the majority of people show common courtesy when catching public transport - which is egg-cellent - but there are still some who behave in ways that cause discomfort to other passengers,” Mr Hynes said.
“We often get complaints about these behaviours so we hatched a plan to make sure we keep providing a service that everyone in the community feels comfortable using.
“We’re encouraging people to be ‘good eggs’ and do those small things that make the journey more enjoyable for everyone – it’s an easy concept that’s hard to egg-nore.”
