Transperth bus on-time running records excellent result
Transperth has recorded its best bus punctuality result in five years with an average of 85.2 per cent of services running on time.
Spokesman David Hynes said the result was great news for passengers.
“Buses are affected by congestion just like any other vehicle on the road,” Mr Hynes said.
“In the last few years we’ve been working really hard on improvements such as bus priority lanes, special turning signals, and timetable and route adjustments to keep services moving and our passengers happy.
“Because our buses have GPS tracking, we are able to calculate an average of how punctual our services are.”

“Public transport unfairly gets a bad rap from time to time – but we have the facts to prove we offer a reliable, safe and efficient way to travel around Perth.
“Last year’s Transperth Satisfaction Monitor (an annual survey of 4300 passengers on the bus, train and ferry network) found nine in ten passengers were happy with their service. We expect this year’s results to be even better.
“Last year - for the fourth consecutive survey - Canstar Blue named Transperth as operating the best urban train system in the country.
“We don’t suggest we’re perfect, but we are working hard to make the system better every day.”
