Butler Station was abuzz on Sunday, September 21 as the Premier of WA Hon Colin Barnett MLA, Transport Minister Hon Dean Nalder MLA and the Butler and Jindalee community officially opened the station.
Hundreds of people took shelter from the wind and rain in Perth newest train station to celebrate the Butler Extension Project's completion three months ahead of schedule and $20million under budget.
Originally costed at $241million, extending the Joondalup Line to Butler sees a long term vision to better connect the northern suburbs.

Features of the project include:
- A park ’n’ ride station with approximately 930 car bays
- 11 new buses to provide feeder services into Butler and Clarkson stations
- Opportunity to positively influence land use around the station as a Transit Oriented Development
- Four additional railcars have been acquired to accommodate the extra passengers
- Three road-over-rail bridges at Landbeach Boulevard, Benenden Avenue and the future Butler Boulevard.
With more than 2,000 passengers expected to board at Butler Station every day, the project will also help ease pressure on the Mitchell Freeway and major road corridors.
