Optus Stadium Open Day transport arrangements

Transperth is reminding ticket-holders to use public transport to get to the Open Day at Optus Stadium this weekend.  

Additional train services and a shuttle bus from Elizabeth Quay Bus Station will operate all day to get people to the event. 

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said up to 110,000 people were expected to attend the open day, for which there are special transport arrangements. 

“The services have been designed specially for the Open Day – so it’s important people check the Transperth website, and plan ahead,” Mr Hynes said. 

“As with all events at the Stadium, public transport is included in your ticket, so you don’t need to pay or tag on at the station or on the bus. 

“It is important to note, we will be checking tickets for people heading to the Stadium –only those with valid event tickets are entitled to transport and entry the stadium. 

“We will be running boosted train services on all lines from 7.30am to Perth Stadium Station until 10pm. 

“Tickets have been allocated for specific time slots, so it’s important people stick to the time on their ticket.”

“Passengers can plan their specific journey using the Transperth journey planner at”

A CBD shuttle (Route 661) will run between Elizabeth Quay Bus Station via Adelaide Terrace and St Georges Terrace. Buses will run approximately every three minutes between 7.30am and 10pm. Regular timetabled services will operate across the network.

Armadale and Thornlie passengers will be able to take a train straight to the Stadium. 

Fremantle, Mandurah and Joondalup line passengers will be able to catch a train to Perth Station or Perth Underground and switch trains for a shuttle service to Perth Stadium Station. 

Midland Line passengers can catch the train to East Perth Station, which has recently had a major upgrade, and walk over the Windan Bridge. 

The pedestrian and level crossings at Moore Street in Northbridge will be closed from 6am to 9pm on January 21. This is because train movements will be so frequent it is safer to close the crossing and divert pedestrians and passengers altogether, rather than making them wait. 

Pedestrians can use the McIver Station underpass at the east end of the station.

As this is a special, one-off community event, a specific public transport plan applies.
All lines will need to change in the city, except the Armadale and Thornlie Lines, which go direct to Perth Stadium Station.
