Helping students get to grip with public transport

Transperth has developed a new Get on Board website which aims to help more than 50,000 primary and high school students who catch public transport every weekday.

The new website aims to help students learn about public transport in an interactive and fun way.

Get on Board is particularly helpful for Year 6 and 7 students, who may have just, or are about to make the move from primary school to secondary school. This is around the time many students start using public transport unsupervised.

Through lesson plans linked to the Australian Curriculum, students are given opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to make informed and safe decisions.

Jump on board www.getonboard.transperth.wa.gov.au for curriculum linked lessons, SmartRider ticketing and group booking information, excursion planning, media library, fact files, games and competitions.

Explore galore! Enter the Get on Board Website Quiz Competition now. Up for grabs is a $150 voucher for the winning student and a $500 voucher for their school.
