All other train arrangements are the same as for ingress.
Special event buses running every 5-10 minutes for two hours before and one hour after the match on eight new suburban routes (from Karrinyup, Mirrabooka, Morley, Curtin, Ellenbrook, Canning Vale, Hamilton Hill and Fremantle).
Route 661 shuttle from Elizabeth Quay Bus Station every three minutes for three hours before the match.
Moore Street crossings closure
The pedestrian and level crossing on Moore St will be non-operational due to the increased volume of trains. Pedestrians can use the McIver Station underpass at the east end of the station.
McIver and Claisebrook Station closures
Trains on the Armadale, Thornlie and Midland lines travelling to and from Perth will not stop at Claisebrook or McIver stations after the event.
Train replacement buses will be operating during this time. Route 905 runs on a 10-minute frequency between Perth Busport and East Perth Station, stopping at Claisebrook, McIver and Perth stations and at Wellington St after Forrest Place (Stop 12924).
“Public transport is included in the ticket for three hours before the start of the game and three hours after its completion, so all fans need to do is show their ticket as they board their train or bus service,” Transperth spokesman David Hynes said.
“This means you should not pay using your SmartRider or buy a cash ticket.”
“These services have been designed specifically for the Stadium – so it is vital people check the Transperth website or App, plan ahead, be patient and respect their fellow travellers.”
