Bus link con­nects city

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

PERTH’S first di­rect bus route from the CBD to the Perth Air­port precinct is ex­pected to have 1000 board­ings a week af­ter it starts next month.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Dean Nalder said the bus route would run ev­ery half hour from Es­planade Bus­port, via Bur­swood Sta­tion, Vic­to­ria Park Trans­fer Sta­tion and Bel­mont Fo­rum, on to ter­mi­nals 1 and 2.

“The State Gov­ern­ment recog­nises that the pub­lic wants in­te­grated smart trans­port so­lu­tions to get them around our grow­ing city; this is one of those ser­vices,” Mr Nalder said.

He said the State and Fed­eral gov­ern­ments had in­vested in in­fras­truc­ture around the air­port, in­clud­ing Gate­way WA and the For­rest­field-Air­port Link.

“With the $1 bil­lion Gate­way project on track for com­ple­tion next year, and a num­ber of vi­tal new in­ter­changes around the air­port opened last month, tourists and trav­ellers have a new gate­way into Western Aus­tralia,” he said.

“And in only five years, th­ese same pas­sen­gers will be able to catch a train on the For­rest­field-Air­port Link.”
