Metro campaign - Train well together

Train well together

In sport a smart play can make all the difference to the game and helping each other is what makes a team play well together.

There are simple things we can do to keep the trains running on time. Help us and your fellow passengers by making these great passenger moves so train travel is easier and better for all of us. We’re all heading to the same goal – our destination.

Create space with the platform spread

The front and back carriages generally have more space. So head to the ends of the platform and board the train there. A game changing move that makes train travel easier and better for all of us.

Master the side step and shepherd

Step aside and allow your train-mates to get off the train before you get on. It’s one of the great passenger plays and makes train travel easier and better for all of us.

Find space on the outside and switch the play

When the train’s crowded, the doorways can get blocked. Help create some room by getting off the train if you’re near the doorway, and let your train-mates pass.

Create a centre corridor break

Standing near the doors makes it harder for people to get on and off the train. So help out your train-mates and move further into the carriage.

Don’t get caught holding the door

Holding the door or forcing the doors creates delays and holds you and your fellow train-mates up on your journey.

We’re all on the same team.

Explore the World of Melbourne by Bus

A three year strategic campaign that targets the key barriers to bus usage:

  • Educate people on where buses go
  • Increase the perceived ease of planning a trip
  • Arrest bus patronage decline in the short term, grow patronage in the long term

Insight:

Melbourne’s made up of many wonderful places that are rich in certain cultures. And not just suburbs as a whole, but smaller, more specific pockets or streets that you can get to by bus. Places other modes of public transport wouldn’t take you.

Idea:

Like the beautiful art deco travel posters of the past, we want to not only celebrate our great city and its rich cultural hotspots, but also romanticise travelling by bus to these places. It’s about travel and discovery. By turning suburbia into exotic locations, we remind people what’s on our doorstep and if they want to go exploring, the bus will get them there.

Freeloaders: On-the-spot Penalty Fares

On 10 August 2014 PTV launched a second fare evasion marketing campaign supporting the introduction of On-the-spot Penalty Fares across the public transport network.

Freeloaders

An estimated $60 million is lost each year to fare evasion. This campaign highlighted the risk of being caught travelling without a valid ticket as well as the anxiety and worry felt by fare evaders when they are freeloading on the public transport network.
