Humanitarian Cadet Program

Congratulations to the Talent team for winning the Champion of Diversity & Inclusion category! In 2018, the team delivered the Humanitarian Cadet Program, a 6 month employment initiative that offers newly-arrived refugees a temporary work placement in the Transport cluster. This custom-built development program is a great way to increase the Cadets’ employability by providing them local experiences relevant to their existing professional qualifications and to help identify longer-term opportunities for those who demonstrate Transport values and behaviours.

By recruiting 17 refugees, the program has ensured that this sub-section of our community is represented in the Transport workforce and has even exceeded the Premier’s target for refugee employment in the Transport cluster by 70%.Well done team, we can’t wait to hear more about your wonderful work!

On Demand Transport Project

Well done to the On Demand Transport team for being a Solutions finalist! The On Demand Transport program was launched in November 2016 to identify and pilot creative new ways to deliver transport services to our customers. The services allow passengers to book a vehicle via app, online or phone to pick them up from either home or a convenient nearby location, and take them to a local transport hub or point of interest.

Graduate Mathilde Ho is a part of the team and helped out by managing the contracts for the Metro On Demand pilots and rolling out temporary wayfinding signage to several operators to generate a more visible and tangible presence for On Demand within the community. On Demand Transport has clocked almost 180,000 passenger trips to date and are finalists in the Intelligent Transport Systems Australia National Awards. Keep up the good work team!










Research Hub

A big shout out to the Research Hub for being a finalist in the Collaboration category! The Research Hub fosters collaboration and information sharing between Transport, the tertiary sector, industry and other government agencies that are interested in transport and related research. They provide a platform for academia and other research collaborators to work with Transport and find solutions for transport problems.

Graduate Elif Ulger and her Innovation Research and Reform team were involved by participating and collaborating with internal stakeholders to produce problem statements related to connected and automated technology for the launch of the Research Hub. With driverless cars and innovative technology being the next big thing, we’ll most likely be seeing some creative solutions coming out of the Research Hub soon!
