Avoid traffic trouble and take Transperth to Coldplay
If you’re feeling a bit yellow with worry over trying to battle traffic or find that elusive carpark to this weekend’s massive Coldplay double don’t panic, Transperth has you covered.
Despite not quite travelling at the speed of sound, you don’t need to be a scientist to know Transperth is the quickest and easiest way to get to and from both sold-out Music of the Spheres World Tour shows at Optus Stadium.
In a magic touch, travel is included in your ticket, covering each concert, and for three hours either side.
To get you to there, Armadale Line trains stopping at Stadium Station will leave Perth Station frequently from 1.30pm, with direct trains leaving Perth Station from 4.19pm.
Spokesman David Hynes said services would be busy, but that it was nothing Transperth hadn’t done many times before.
“Moving tens of thousands of people to and from massive events like this is par for the course for Transperth – this year alone we’ve done Ed Sheeran, almost two dozen AFL games and the sold-out Matildas game – so it’s business as usual for us,” he said.
“On top of the special event buses we always put on for weekend events of this size at Optus, direct trains from Perth, Fremantle and Joondalup will drop you right at Stadium Station before the show, and extra trains will be running afterwards to get people safely home as quickly as possible.
“Instead of sending out a hymn for the weekend and hoping for the best, we encourage fans to set their clocks and plan their journey to avoid missing any of the action.
“After all, the hardest part of your night should be deciding whether something just like this is a touch of paradise or the adventure of a lifetime.”
Suburban event buses from Optus Stadium will only operate for 45 minutes after each show.
Attendees using the Thornlie Line should note services will be cancelled from approximately 9.45pm, with the last service departing Stadium Station at 9.27pm.
Train replacement buses will be operating between Cannington and Thornlie.
