Let Transperth take you

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

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.
