Adele concert numbers
The preliminary numbers are in – and early indications are Grammy Award winner Adele really is a record-breaker.
Early estimates indicate about 30,000 people caught the train, and another 6,500 used the bus.
The biggest single weeknight event on the Transperth system prior to Adele was an AC/DC concert on Monday March 8, 2010. About 28,000 people used public transport to attend the show.
Public Transport Authority Managing Director Mark Burgess thanked passengers for their patience.
“As we expected, services right across the Transperth system were extremely busy, but concert-goers really were excellent at planning ahead and allowing extra time, and importantly being patient and kind to each other,” Mr Burgess said.
“Dozens of extra bus and train drivers, customer service officers, transit officers, service planners, train controllers, and other event staff worked last night to make it all happen – they did a great job moving such a big crowd safely and efficiently.”
