Transperth help commended

These staff members were highly commended in the Excellence in Improving Participation category.

Mr Manning regularly uses Transperth to travel between his home and VisAbility � formerly known as the Association for the Blind � in Victoria Park.

�When my life changed I wasn�t sure what I was going to do or how I was going to get around without been carted around by my parents,� Mr Manning said.

�The Transperth staff have always been friendly and helpful and the service is more accessible, and sometimes more reliable, than formal paid transportation services.

�I have been helped to get to coffee shops to catch up with people, to ATMs, to taxis and also to the hospital when I needed it. They go out of their way to help me get to where I need to be.�

Staff help passengers with mobility or vision impairments use the Transperth system, by helping them board and alight from trains and buses, transfer between services and buy tickets.

Passengers with a vision impairment or mobility issue can tap into this resource from first service to last service, seven days a week, by calling 1800 800 022.
