Perth Busport tenancies available
Small businesses are being offered the chance to get involved in the state-of-the-art new Perth Busport in the CBD.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said two retail kiosk tenancies inside the $209 million facility's lounge were currently being advertised for lease.
"This is an excellent opportunity for a small business to start up in the heart of the city, in what will become one of the busiest transport hubs in Perth," Mr Nalder said.
"When the Perth Busport is complete next year, we expect there to be about 25,000 passenger movements a day through here. These tenancies will be at the heart of the action."
"By 2031, there will be about 38,500 passenger movements a day and at peak times it will be used by more than 200 buses an hour - that represents hundreds if not thousands of cars off our roads, and more choice for passengers."
The Minister said the retail tenancies, in the main underground lounge area, would add to the customer experience.
"These kiosks will offer food and drinks for passengers who are waiting for their bus service to depart, or perhaps to pick up a coffee on their way to work," he said.

Mr Nalder said the busport was a key part of the State Government's integrated approach to transport planning, catering for demand for at least the next 30 years.
"This Government is investing heavily and using smart modern technology to make public transport more reliable and more attractive now and in the future," he said.
