Pulling out all the stops for cricket fans
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”.
