Some City of Cockburn staff have used the corporate smartriders for work travel to conferences, workshops and meetings during the year. We have smartriders at different workplaces. They can be booked online by staff - just the same as booking a work car. We also use a paper copy to help keep track of the cards and the approximate card balances.
There is always a rush on the cards when people are attending a conference in Perth as travelling by train is so much better than driving to Perth and finding parking. Perth is by far the most popular destination that people want to go via public transport. The rush on cards comes as staff tell others about the corporate smartrider cards.
The CEO is aware of the benefits of using a smartrider and is leading by example as he and staff from his office regularly travel by train to meetings. Staff from parks, roads, traffic, building services, media, communications, GIS, environment, records, health, governance, finance planning, human resources and community development have all signed the registration sheets and seen how many different people are using public transport rather than driving, even when they do have a work vehicle available.
