Plan ahead for smooth jour­ney

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

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.
