ABC of safety - Warsaw ZTM’s educational program
In April, the Warsaw Public Transport Authority
ZTM will start implementing the pilot programme
for children “ABC of Safety”. Lessons will
prepare first grade pupils for using public
The scenario of transport lessons prepared in a
simple and practical manner by the staff of
ZTM, will teach youngest pupils how to access
safely the bus or the tram stop, get on and off
the vehicle, behave properly in public transport
as well as at bus and tram stops, use the ticket
validating machines, the “next stop on demand”
buttons or the door opening buttons.
A successful test had been conducted on pupils
of the elementary school N° 77 in Warsaw
Bielany accompanied by their tutors during the
Public Transport Days in September last year.
Tutors and children expressed their great
satisfaction and acknowledged the excellent
preparation of the instructors –four employees
from ZTM. “The campaign of ZTM is very helpful”–
says Honorata Waszkiewicz, responsible
for the implementation of several national and
Warsaw based educational programmes.
In 2010 ZTM plans to regularly deliver such
classes together with the Warsaw Education
Office and the largest provider of transport
services in Warsaw – Municipal Bus Company
(MZA). Early April a series of 21 classes are
organised by ZTM for first grade students.
This initiative is part of “Warsaw Educational
Line” programme i.e. a series of educational classes on a tram addressed to pupils of elementary and secondary schools. It has been operating in the capital since December 2009. The campaign is organised by the Public Transport Authority of Warsaw and Warsaw’s Police Headquarters.
