We believe it is our responsibility as a large organisation to give back to the communities in which we operate. One of the ways we do this is through our Spirit program, the activities catered around the program, and our larger Corporate Responsibility Strategy.
Payroll Giving 'Spirit'
Implemented in 2009, Spirit is our payroll giving scheme, whereby employees have the opportunity to give to a number of charities, match-funded by Transdev up to $500 per person, per year.
Our Spirit Charities are:
At Transdev Melbourne, we believe these charities cover our four main areas of charity focus which are cancer research and awareness, animal welfare, depression and anxiety awareness, and caring for sick children.
We are also involved with local charities on a grass-roots level through sponsorship and donation and have raised funds for charities such as the Fight Cancer Foundation by taking part in Footy Colours Day. We have also been known to raise a few dollars for our fellow staff members who support a specific cause or want to help a relative in need.
Public transport is an essential service to help people live a quality life.
Transdev Melbourne regularly works with community groups and schools to ensure the public transport network is accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
This includes running our Practise makes Perfect program which provides bus education and safe travelling tips for individuals and groups who have special needs. It is open to anyone who would like to become more confident in travelling by familiarising themselves with our buses.
We also participate in a range of government and community events to promote the use of public transport such as:
Transdev Melbourne holds regular Meet our Managers sessions where managers and other staff from across the business visit key locations on our network and listen to and gather feedback from our customers face to face. The feedback from these sessions is often used to help plan our future service changes.
We also have an active Facebook and Twitter community where we engage with our customers about the quality of our service, as well as encouraging feedback through surveys, our website or by calling 1800 800 007 (open 6am-midnight, daily).
Engagement with Schools
Transdev Melbourne is also available to speak with schools in relation to issues such as touching on and off with myki and bus travel etiquette.
If you would like to arrange for a Transdev representative to speak at your school, please contact us through our feedback page.
