Transdev Australia at Sydney Light Rail public safety forum

Speakers at Sydney Light Rail public safety forum

About 80 transport experts, emergency services representatives, academics and high schoolers have met in Sydney for a Sydney Light Rail public safety forum.

The forum, an annual safety event run by Transdev, was held last week at Allianz Stadium, to make Sydney tramway travel safer for young people, and to help authorities better understand how youth use and interact with public transport.

UNSW Psychology Senior Lecturer Dr Susanne Schweizer explained the cognitive thought patterns of youth which impact how they use transport.

Transport for NSW Executive Director, Brand and Marketing Allison Lee spoke about the influences on our attention spans and how to ensure safe travel.

A panel led by ALTRAC Light Rail CEO Duncan Edghill included a range of views on light rail safety on young minds.

Sydney Secondary College Blackwattle Bay Deputy Principal Jane Cuke, and Fort Street Public School P&C Executive Member Melanie Tait contributed along with Dr Schweizer and Sydney Secondary College Year 12 student Imak Gastell.

Transdev Australia and New Zealand CEO Brian Brennan said the forum was powerful vehicle for change.

How can we help you to move forward?
