Make pub­lic trans­port a NewYear res­o­lu­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

TRANSPERTH is putting on ex­tra ser­vices for New Year cel­e­bra­tions.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes urged peo­ple to use pub­lic trans­port to take the stress out of their New Year’s Eve travel.

“With train ser­vices run­ning through the night and ex­tra-late bus and ferry ser­vices, you can eas­ily leave the car keys at home,” Mr Hynes said.

“All you need to do is plan ahead: visit the Transperth web­site, down­load the Transperth App or call the Transperth Info Line on 13 62 13 and plan your jour­ney.

There will be ex­tra trains and in­creased ca­pac­ity on all lines, op­er­at­ing on in­creased fre­quen­cies be­fore and af­ter mid­night, drop­ping back to hourly as the morn­ing pro­gresses.

Buses will op­er­ate on a Satur­day timetable, with ad­di­tional ser­vices on se­lected routes.

The last ser­vices of the night will be Cir­cle Route buses (999s), with the last de­par­ture from Fre­man­tle at 4.05am.

Ferry ser­vices will op­er­ate on a Satur­day timetable, with ad­di­tional trips at night.

Perth and Fre­man­tle CATs will be run­ning, but the Joon­dalup CAT is not.

All ser­vices on New Year’s Day will op­er­ate on a Sun­day/Pub­lic Hol­i­day timetable, ex­cept the Joon­dalup CAT, which will not be run­ning.
