Our values

Our organisation has five key values which are shared by Transdev businesses globally. Across all of our Australian and New Zealand operations we view them as the behaviours, attitudes and priorities that we value most highly in our people and that we continuously and consistently look for in candidates.

Uncompromising Safety

Safety is our number one priority and our credo. It underlines every activity we undertake, whether on the front line or in our offices. Our personal safety and that of our teams, our customers and our communities is paramount.


Our commitment underlies our results-based orientation, as well as our client and customer focus. Faced with the local and global challenges of mobility, we are committed to ongoing innovation as we deliver on our daily mission through inventiveness, creativity and sharing best practice.



Our partnerships with stakeholders; including government, internal and external customers, our local communities and contractors, are based on understanding, remaining close-at-hand, sharing and listening. This proximity allows us to actively listen to our customers and partner for success to deliver above and beyond expectations.


It is passion that fuels the daily commitment of our teams. Supported by a company that encourages diversity and dialogue, each employee performs their professional responsibilities with entrepreneurial spirit and drive to ensure our services are safe, friendly and reliable. The passion of our people allows us to make a positive difference in our local communities.



In committing ourselves individually and collectively, our focus is on performance. We are dedicated to providing safe, reliable and friendly services for our customers. The performance of our people allows us to be proactive and go the extra mile, and to create value with real and enduring benefits.


We have a range of initiatives at Transdev that promote the types of behaviours and attitudes that we value most in our organisation.

Our Diversity and Inclusion strategy is built on the following five pillars:


Our belief is that public transport will play a hugely important part in how cities of the future come to life. It’s one of the reasons why we are creating more work opportunities for more young people through our emerging talent programs – click here to learn more about how we’ve become one of the AFR’s top 100 graduate employers.

Age pillar
Indigenous and Ethnic Diversity

We recognise that the Indigenous culture within our communities is an integral part of Australia and New Zealand’s national identity. Transdev plays a central role in connecting many local communities, so it’s imperative that our people respect the culture, history and the lands on which we operate. Our vision for reconciliation is to acknowledge, celebrate and provide opportunities for connection and employment as we strive to build and foster more collaborative relationships within our communities.

Our public transport services are pivotal to the lives of many people living with a disability, and at Transdev we want to ensure that our employees with disability receive the same standards of treatment at work as we provide for our passengers during their journeys.

We believe that people with disability are skilled and capable contributors and as a member of the Australian Network on Disability (AND), we are advancing the inclusion of people with disability into employment with Transdev.

People with disabilities

At Transdev, we are aiming to build a culture that is accepting of our colleagues’ sexual orientation and supportive of LGBTIQ+ employees across each one of our businesses. We recognise that the LGBTIQ+ community faces many challenges and as a provider of public transport in Australia and New Zealand, we are committed to ensuring safe and respectful journeys for our staff and passengers alike. Transdev is an LGTBI Inclusive employer.

LGBTQI initiatives

The public transport sector has traditionally been male dominated, which is why Transdev is increasing the number of employment opportunities for women. Our aim is to build awareness about the great careers that exist for females within public transport and encourage applications into roles at all levels of the business, working towards reaching our goal of 50% of all job applications coming from females by 2023.
