Let Transperth take you
PEOPLE using public transport over the festive season are being urged by Transperth to plan ahead.
While much of the world stops on Christmas Day, bus and train drivers, maintenance teams and transit officers will still be at work.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said public transport was a cheaper and safer option at this time of year.
“If you are looking to indulge – sensibly, of course – in some Christmas cheer, you can have peace of mind knowing that someone else is driving,” he said.
“It’s also very economical: a family of two adults and up to five children can travel all day for only $12.10 on a Family Rider.
“Bus and train services will operate on adjusted timetables, so I encourage all our festive-season passengers to plan their journey to ensure they get to their celebrations on time and with minimal fuss.”
On December 25, all trains will run approximately every 30 minutes (except Thornlie, which will run hourly) starting from 6.15am to 7.30am, depending on line and direction.
Ferries and buses will operate on a Sunday/public holiday timetable, but there will be no CAT buses.
