Transperth’s just the ticket for Australia Day Skyworks
Lots of extra buses and trains will be on hand to get revellers to and from Australia Day celebrations tomorrow.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said Australia Day was traditionally the busiest day on the Transperth calendar, and urged passengers to plan their journey.
“As always, we will be running extra train and bus services and will have lots of extra staff on hand to help our passengers get to their celebrations,” Mr Hynes said.
“As we have done in the past, we are directing Joondalup Line passengers to Perth Underground, Mandurah Line passengers to Elizabeth Quay Station, and Midland, Armadale/Thornlie and Fremantle passengers to Perth Station,” he said.
North-bound Joondalup Line trains will not stop at Elizabeth Quay, and south-bound Mandurah Line trains will not stop at Perth Underground.
For buses, public holiday timetables will apply, with some routes operating boosted services. Some deviations will be in place because of road closures.
Ferry services will operate on a Sunday timetable from 7.15am but stop at noon.
“Our $12.60 FamilyRider ticket allows up to seven people (two standard and five concession fares) to travel all day anywhere on the network.
“If you plan to travel on a FamilyRider, make sure you leave a little extra time to buy the ticket – they are only available as a cash ticket, and they are in hot demand.
“Don’t forget to plan your journey, be considerate of fellow passengers and have a fantastic day celebrating what makes Australia great.”
