MONASH students are being warned to stay safe when catching public transport this school year. Transport Safety Victoria is calling on young commuters to be vigilant around buses, trams and trains to prevent accidents.
Acting director of transport safety Stephen Turner said distraction was a key concern.
"Students who wear headphones, send text messages or play games on their mobiles around buses or trains are putting their lives at risk. Instead, they should focus on getting to and from school safely."
