I'm Transport Live Conversation series

Live Conversations started in September 2020. In a historic first for Transport, more than 8,500 people from right across the business – frontline, regions, Sydney, and those working from home – came together over three sessions with some special Transport guests, to talk about the great things we’re doing for customers and communities across the state. We heard about how we can make a better future together and guests took questions from the audience.

In case you missed them, you can catch up on the recordings via the links further below.
