CRICKET fans mak­ing their way to Perth sta­dium for the first ma­jor event this week­end will be among the first to try spe­cial bus ser­vices de­signed to reach ar­eas with­out a ded­i­cated train line.

The One-Day In­ter­na­tional be­tween Aus­tralia and Eng­land is ex­pected to at­tract 60,000 peo­ple from across Perth to Bur­swood.

The ad­di­tional bus ser­vices for full-ca­pac­ity events will start along select routes two hours be­fore the event starts and run ev­ery five to 10 min­utes.

For south­ern sub­urbs pas­sen­gers, the ad­di­tional ser­vices in­clude the 656 bus start­ing in Can­ning Vale and trav­el­ling through sub­urbs such as Wil­let­ton, Can­ning­ton, Carlisle and Vic­to­ria Park. The 657 bus from Curtin Univer­sity bus sta­tion will also run ad­di­tional ser­vices through ar­eas in­clud­ing Kens­ing­ton and East Vic­to­ria Park.

Cricket fan Sally Ed­wards, of Thornlie, said she went to a test game at the sta­dium and the public trans­port was “amaz­ing”.
