Black Lives Matter.
Driving out racism is something that can only be achieved if everyone plays their part.
The power of transportation to bring communities together, to connect people, and to provide opportunities is something Transurban, the Express Lanes’ operator, strongly believes in. That has never felt more important than it does today.
We are taking this moment to reinforce to all of our employees, partners, and customers that Black Lives Matter. We denounce all forms of racism, celebrate the diversity of our team and community, and challenge ourselves to do more to propel a culture of inclusion and respect at our company, in our communities and within the transportation industry.
Success can only be achieved when people of color face no barriers and have equal opportunity to thrive and prosper.
The passion of people protesting in communities across this country deserves to be matched by an ambition at every company and every sector to achieve racial equality.
We will work every day to make that true. We are with you on the road ahead to drive out racism.
-Jennifer Aument, President, Transurban North America
