Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

IT is time South Perth had a ded­i­cated CAT ser­vice in­stead of a sec­ond train sta­tion.

A CAT ser­vice would con­nect the res­i­dents and visi­tors to the Can­ning Bridge train sta­tion (Como) and Mends Street ferry.

Blended with cur­rent pub­lic trans­port, it would go a long way to de­creas­ing the ever-grow­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion that is de­vel­op­ing in South Perth.

A CAT ser­vice would en­able res­i­dents to park at home then catch the CAT and exit via train, ferry and bus.

Tourists and visi­tors could ar­rive by train, ferry and bus and then move about South Perth eater­ies, shops – and not for­get­ting our won­der­ful zoo.

So if you feel you would use the ser­vice of a ded­i­cated CAT ser­vice in South Perth, then con­tact your lo­cal mem­ber and ask for a CAT for Smart City South Perth. MICHAEL BOND South Perth
