Transport roadmap to freedom


As the targets of 70 per cent and 80 per cent in NSW were met restrictions have eased. Across Transport and across government our teams are busily working to prepare for further easing in December. The first priority is ensuring the safety of our people and our customers. Hear from our Secretary and leaders on some of the things we are doing including our position on mandatory vaccination and return to workplaces. Watch the video here.

Vaccination at Transport

The number one thing we can all do to prepare for the easing of restrictions is to get fully vaccinated. As the ads say, Let’s do this Transport! If you haven't already, book in now for your vaccination to protect yourself and to get back to doing the things we love, faster.

While mandatory vaccination is being talked about a lot in the media and is already in place under the public health order for our Authorised Workers and teams from LGAs of concern working in construction, vaccinations are not currently mandated at Transport.

The Department of Premier and Cabinet have issued a circular which states their policy position to help guide government agencies like ours and we are considering vaccinations as part of risk assessment reviews across our business, in-line with the circular.

We are having ongoing discussions within government and with industry about whether vaccinations will need to be mandatory after Public Health Orders have expired.

What we do know, is that there have been no decisions as yet and there will be a number of factors to consider in assessing our health and safety risks – the risks to our people and the community will be at the forefront.


COVIDSafe measures in place

Our number one priority is always to keep our people and our customers safe. Since the outbreak of COVID we’ve implemented a number of COVIDSafe measures including our enhanced cleaning program with over 3 million extra cleaning hours and 1950 extra cleaners, QR Codes across our all our workplace and sites for COVIDSafe check ins, green dots to guide our customers on where to sit and stand, and many more. Check out the full list here.

While we already have COVIDSafe measures in place to support our customers and staff as we see more people return to the network from October 11, we are continuing to focus on what more can be done to help protect our people with additional measures now available to us.


Continue to work from home, if you can

Even with the unveiling of the roadmap to freedom at 80 per cent, under the public health order all employers must continue to allow employees to work from home, if ‘reasonably practicable’. This means that until such time as the orders change all of us who can work from home need to continue to do so. Of course, our workplaces remain open for those who need to use them and where home is not a safe place.

When the time does come that the orders are lifted and we can welcome more people back to the workplace our hybrid way of working – a mix of in person and virtual - will continue to be the way we work into the future.


Have your say - in this together

Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback on the proposed additional COVIDSafe measures and implementation framework for Transport. We received over 4500 pieces of feedback from across Transport and are reviewing these before any decisions are made.

You can find more information on the COVIDSafe Additional Measures Consultation page.
