TransAction Project

Supporting Employment and Training in our Communities

In 2012, Bus Queensland partnered with Redbank Plains State High School to create an innovative, community based project to address the looming shortage of bus drivers within the transport industry. Together, we engaged with parents of the local school community to improve their skills and connect them with training and employment opportunities within Bus Queensland.

The Partnership was internationally recognised when a study group from the OECD visited the Ipswich area in 2012. The group specifically requested to meet with stakeholders of the TransAction Program to discuss funding initiatives, outcomes and what has been learned from it. The group was keen to hear about Bus Queensland’s proactive approach to addressing skills shortages in the Logan/Ipswich corridor.
