Plan ahead for smooth journey
EXTRA buses and trains will be scheduled across the Transperth network to ensure residents can get to and from Australia Day celebrations on Thursday.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said it was traditionally the busiest day of the year for Transperth, saying passengers should plan ahead carefully.
“As always, we will be running extra train and bus services and enlisting additional transit officers and customer service staff to help our passengers, whether they’re off to a barbecue or heading to the Skyworks,” he said.
“The online Journey Planner, Transperth app and the Transperth InfoLine (13 62 13) have all the information on how to get around, so the most difficult decision you’ll need to make is what to chuck on the barbie.”
Passengers have also been asked to remain patient in the rush to get home at the end of the day.
“As we have done in the past, to make the post-event travel as efficient as possible, we are directing Joondalup Line passengers to Perth Underground, Mandurah Line passengers to Elizabeth Quay station, and Midland, Armadale/Thornlie and Fremantle passengers to Perth station,” Mr Hynes said.
