Meet Nika

Nika graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science, before joining Transdev’s graduate program in 2018. The first stop for all of our graduates is a two month operational placement; for Nika, this provided the opportunity to become a fully qualified bus driver. “Seeing Perth’s bus network from the driver’s seat has given me invaluable insights for my future work as a transport planner,” Nika said. For Nika, being a Journey Maker means working out how we can make the “line between A to B” and our customers experience seamless, safe and comfortable.
