Early Australind now takes Perth-bound passengers from Armadale

23/3/07

Armadale commuters can now use the early-morning Australind train to Perth.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said today that the Australind often had empty seats when it came through Armadale.

Ms MacTiernan said she had asked the Public Transport Authority to have the Australind pick up as many Armadale passengers as it could, to help relieve peak hour crowding on regular passenger trains.

“The Australind arrives at Armadale at about 8am each weekday and passengers can board the train for a non-stop, seating only, trip into Perth City Station,” the Minister said.

“Passengers only pay the normal fare and can use either cash tickets or SmartRider.

“A six-month trial, which started last month, has attracted as many as 30 passengers from Armadale, but there have still been plenty of spare seats.

“Transperth will be arranging signs on the station indicating arrival times and seat availability, so if you see the Australind, pull in and hop aboard.”
