Top tips to improve Transperth trips
It’s the little things that count – in life, and when taking public transport – which is why some very little critters are now helping Transperth passengers improve their trips.
Transperth’s latest behaviour campaign – Top Tips to Improve Trips – sets out to remind passengers the ways to make their (and others’) journey better are so simple, that even a baby animal could manage it.
Featuring a piglet, pug puppies, bunnies, ducklings, chicks and a kitten, it’s hoped the video, poster and social media campaign’s cuteness will draw attention to some other little things worth remembering.
Transperth information and events manager Charlotte Hayes said the campaign aims to educate passengers about behaviour on public transport.
“Our campaigns are often tailored to what our passengers tell us about their experiences when they are out on the network,” Mrs Hayes said.
“What we’re hearing, and witnessing for ourselves, is that some of our passengers aren’t practising some really simple behaviours.
“Things like moving down the carriage, standing clear of the doors and letting others get off the bus or train before you try and get on are easy but important.”
As well as public transport etiquette, the animals demonstrate the benefits of planning a journey in advance using the Transperth App or JourneyPlanner, signing up for My Alerts (tailored advisory emails) or following @transperth on Twitter to find out about service changes or disruptions, obtaining a SmartRider and enabling AutoLoad, and riding a bike, walking or catching a bus to the train station rather than driving.
