Metro’s Rail Safety Education

Free rail safety education for schools and communities

Metro’s Community Education Program aims to connect with students and community members, encourage positive and safe behaviour around trains and tracks, and give everyone the confidence to travel safely on the network.

Delivered by a team of friendly and engaging facilitators, we offer a range of sessions, delivered free to primary and secondary students and community groups.

Sessions are available Monday – Thursdays, covering a range of topics including:

  • Staying safe around trains and tracks
  • Journey Planning and MYKI
  • Tickets and concessions
  • Dangers of trespassing
  • Getting help or assistance

Find out more about what our sessions cover for specific audiences, which can be tailored further to suit your group’s requirements.

Community Groups

Metro’s Community Group sessions aim to improve passenger confidence, mobility and ensure all members of the community are safe using our rail network.

Sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of each cohort and are supportive to learners with varying learning needs, culturally and linguistically diverse and senior groups, through a variety of visual, audio and text stimulated content.
