Bus changes in south-west metro area
From today, Transperth will implement service changes to a number of bus routes servicing the south-western metropolitan area.
The changes, which reflect Transperth’s continual monitoring of customer feedback and patronage figures, affect route numbers 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 70, 71, 72, 78, 103 and 104. They include:
- A 10-minute service between the Perth City Busport and the University of WA on weekdays during the day
- A new route 102 replacing routes 71 and 72 between Perth and Cottesloe to improve the reliability of the service
- Half-hour frequency between Perth and Claremont on new route 102 on Saturdays, Sundays and weekday evenings
- A new route 107 replacing route 70 between Fremantle and Claremont, with some trips extending to the Perth City Busport
- Increased and more consistent frequency of daily service along Stirling Highway between Perth and Claremont
- Increased service to the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre from St Georges Terrace – four buses an hour during week days
Transperth acting director Mark Burgess said anyone who used these services could get a new timetable on the bus, from Transperth’s Information Centres in Perth, or through the organisation’s website (www.transperth.wa.gov.au).
”This review reflects Transperth’s commitment to providing residents with more frequent services and improved public transport options,” Mr Burgess said.
