Proper behaviour during bus travel is being taught to students at various Queensland schools via the Step Up program and Springfield Central State School is the latest school to benefit.

MP Jordan Charis Mullen and Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey recently visited the Springfield Central school to talk about the public transport program.

As part of the “Governing from Ipswich” initiative, the Queensland Government’s Step Up Program ensures safe journey for students, other passengers and the bus driver.

TransLink Senior Network Officers and bus drivers met with the school’s Year 6 students. They talked about positive behaviour on buses and what they should do if someone acts inappropriately.

The program also educated parents and students about making small changes that would help bus travel become safer.
