Explore and share TfNSW COVIDSafe Travel Choices Key Messages for Employees

The COVIDSafe Transport Plan supports customers to remain COVID safe while using the public transport network. Our Key messages have been designed to help guide your employees’ travel choices which include, resetting and re-establishing new ways of working and travelling, continuing to work flexibly if you can and how to travel for work on the days you plan to head into the office. For those catching public transport, this means checking the capacity on your service, finding the green dots, wearing a face mask and travelling outside of peak times. Walking and bike riding for shorter trips or mixing public and active transport are other great ways to travel for work. Above all, to keep everyone COVID safe, it’s essential for everyone to stay home if they’re not well and get tested.

Consider how the changes you have made now can benefit your business in the future

2021 presents an opportunity to reset and leverage the ‘fresh start effect’ to establish and sustain new ways of working and travel habits with a focus on flexibility and choice.

Employers are reporting that their key focus is planning a safe return to the workplace for their employees while holding onto some of the wins gained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of the benefits are derived through adoption of flexible working arrangements such as working from home, and by implementing related practices that support business productivity and efficiency. Find out more about benefits for your business.

Review your existing policies and procedures, especially regarding working from home and flexible working

As businesses plan to return to their workplaces in greater numbers, flexible working practices are more significant than ever to inform and enable the ways we work and travel.

Flexible working will look different for each business and for every individual, as the needs and cultures of each business vary. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ model, but a variety of ideas and solutions have been developed to help make flexible working work for you and your business.

Our Transition Toolkit comprises of a suite of resources to help you plan the transition of your business and staff to a new normal, as restrictions begin to ease. Get started with our Transition Toolkit.

Use the Transport Policies/Procedures Checklist  to review and update your policies and procedures as necessary and help you develop a COVIDSafe Travel Action Plan for your employees, visitors and customers.
