Victorian Maori Wardens Inc. Program
CDC Victoria, and the VMWI, with the support of Public Transport Victoria (PTV) have launched a joint initiative aimed at providing guidance, leadership and counseling services to Maori youth in order to promote good/model behaviours. It involves uniformed members of the VMWI travelling on the Westrans Werribee Bus Services in groups of three, primarily to engage with the targeted youth groups.
The initiative which was launched in late May 2014, has been warmly received by travelling commuters, bus drivers, and the public at large. The VMWI have engaged with numerous youth, the general public, other transport safety authority personnel, and the wider community.
“CDC Victoria is proud to have partnered with the VMWI in order to promote model behaviours, improve customer satisfaction and safety for our patrons. As a company, CDC Victoria is committed to ongoing community engagement that will deliver service enhancements” said George Konstantopoulos, Group Operations Manager, CDC Victoria.
The VMWI will be travelling on buses within the Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit, Wyndham, and surrounding areas. Look out for them on your travels, and you are welcome to provide any feedback you may have.
