Discount fares for Australind replacement

Australind passengers will be offered a 50 per cent discount on fares when travelling on replacement road coaches during the shutdown of the Armadale Line.

From Monday, 20 November the Australind train will be replaced by road coaches, which will run twice a day in each direction.

The decision to replace the Australind train with road coaches followed community responses to a comprehensive independent survey conducted by Transwa last year.

Feedback was received from community members who had regularly used the train service over the previous year.

The road coach replacements will operate from East Perth terminal instead of Perth Station and will include an all-stops and a limited-stop service.

The limited-stop service will also include a stop at Kwinana Station – meaning passengers who wish to arrive at Perth Train Station can transfer to the Mandurah Line. There will be no additional cost for passengers who transfer to the Mandurah Line.

The 50 per cent discount fares are for passenger bookings for the Australind train road coach replacement services only.

The road coaches will stop at the same locations as the Australind train, with Kwinana as an additional stop.

The reopening of the Australind will also coincide with the delivery of six new diesel railcars (two three-car sets) which will be manufactured locally in Bellevue and will replace the existing fleet between Perth and Bunbury.
