Safety Education

We promote the importance of safety to the public through a variety of programs and initiatives

Right Track

Right Track is PTA’s community education program that’s all about safer travel and empowering young people to become responsible for their own safety around public transport. Right Track offers education resources, school incursions and targeted programs to promote safe behaviour on and around public transport to young people.

For more information visit the Right Track website.

Get on Board education program

Get on Board is the Transperth education program which teaches students to use public transport safely and responsibly. Get on Board develops and runs safety-specific programs like the Don’t Mess With Bus program.

Stay off the Tracks

Stay off the Tracks is the broader community campaign aimed at raising awareness of the danger of inattention and risk-taking behaviour on and around the rail network. Closely aligned to Right Track, the Stay off The Tracks campaign messaging encompasses a greater audience.

Stay Off the Tracks lends its name to our Facebook and Instagram channels.

Level crossing safety

Level crossing safety campaign banner

There are 31 vehicle level-crossings across the metropolitan train network. There is a PTA policy in place not to increase the number of level-crossings and, under the METRONET program there is a plan to remove some of the existing level-crossings.

Unfortunately, each year we see vehicle incidents at level-crossings and, in an effort to reduce these, we run awareness campaigns.

To view our recent level-crossing awareness campaigns visit the Safety Campaigns page.

For more information on level-crossing removal visit the METRONET website.

Passenger safety

Tactile Paving

Under our Transperth brand we frequently release safety campaigns aimed specifically at encouraging safe passenger behaviour. These cover topics such as staying behind the yellow line and Escalator safety
