Adele concert to impact Transperth passengers
Fremantle Line passengers are being asked to adjust their travel patterns on Tuesday (February 28) when Grammy Award-winning singer Adele takes to the stage at Domain Stadium.
Organisers are expecting an unprecedented crowd of about 65,000 people.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said additional buses and trains would be put on for the concert, but regular passengers may find their services very crowded.
“Trains at peak hour are busy at the best of times but adding a huge crowd of Adele fans into the mix will mean some Fremantle Line passengers may prefer to adjust their travel patterns,” Mr Hynes said.
“If you are coming from the CBD, the 28th would be a good day to start and finish work earlier, or stay for dinner in the city.”
Services are expected to be at their busiest between 5pm and 7.30pm.
“We regret that some regular passengers will be impacted by this, but this really is a one-off event which will be a special night for tens of thousands of fans,” he said.
West Leederville is the official station for all Domain events, but Joondalup Line fans are advised to use Leederville Station instead.
Following the event, Subiaco Station will be closed from 10pm to 11.30pm. This is standard practice for major events and means that trains are not filled before they arrive at the event station.
Transperth will operate special event shuttle Route 80 from Perth Busport to the venue on the night. Buses will run from 4.30pm from Perth Busport stands 1-4. Inbound passengers will be dropped at Cambridge Street and outbound passengers are directed to use special event Route 685 from Roberts Road to the Perth Busport.
