Inaugural Public Transport Authority CEO appointed


Reece Waldock has been appointed the first Chief Executive Officer of the Public Transport Authority.

Mr Waldock has been acting in the position since the authority was established by the Gallop Government in July last year.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan congratulated Mr Waldock on securing public transport's top job.

"To date, Reece has ably implemented the State Government's initiatives to promote public transport in Perth and throughout the State," Ms MacTiernan said.

"He has presided over the formation of the authority, which for the first time integrates public transport in Western Australia.

"The Public Transport Authority is arguably the most comprehensive public transport system in Australia.

"Transperth patronage has increased by over 8 per cent in the past three years to 90.57 million total passenger boardings in 2003-04 and the reported level of public satisfaction in the system is at record or near record highs by all criteria."

Mr Waldock has already enjoyed a successful career in the public and private sector, including two years as the Acting Commissioner of Railways for the WA Government Railways Commission.

As the PTA's CEO, Mr Waldock is responsible for the operations of:

  • Transperth's integrated public transport system of bus, train and ferry services;
  • TransWA's network of rail and road coach services connecting the State's regions;
  • Regional Town Bus services; and
  • School bus services across Western Australia.

Mr Waldock also oversees the State Government's $1.518billion New MetroRail Project.
