Chance to have say on new Lakelands Station bus routes
- Community encouraged to consult on new and altered bus routes in southern suburbs
- More than 17 suburbs included in bus routes to Lakelands Station
- Consultation period closes on January 27
With construction of Lakelands Station now in its final stages, the local community is being invited to have its say on changes to the bus network servicing the new station.
The introduction of a new station will generate changes to bus services in surrounding suburbs, with three new routes being added and seven existing routes changed when the station opens in mid-2023.
School specials will be reviewed once the feeder bus network is finalised and updated timetables for all services will be available later in the year.
Lakelands Station is between Warnbro and Mandurah stations, providing residents with another public transport option to help meet growing demand.
It will include an entry building, pedestrian overpass, two platforms, kiss-and-ride facilities, a bus interchange, a 400-bay car park and cycling facilities.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said when the station opens in mid-2023, southern suburbs residents would be spoilt for choice when it came to public transport options – including an efficient feeder bus network.
“Thousands of commuters are expected to use the new station each day,” he said.
“We are linking the train services with a well-planned feeder bus network to help make the commute as easy as possible for our passengers.
“With three new routes being added and seven existing routes changed, it’s very important for the local community to provide feedback and get the best possible outcome for all involved.”
