Free ANZAC Day travel for veterans and serving personnel
Transperth is recognising the sacrifice made by the men and women of the armed forces by providing them with free travel all day on ANZAC Day (Thursday, April 25).
Extra bus and train services will operate, including early-morning services to get people to and from the dawn services in Kings Park and Fremantle.
“All serving and returned service personnel wearing their uniforms, campaign ribbons or medals can travel free on all Transperth bus, train and ferry services throughout the day*,” Transperth spokesman David Hynes said.
“Other passengers will need to buy a ticket or use their SmartRider to travel.”
Kings Park Dawn Service
Special-event trains will be operating to Perth on the Joondalup Line, leaving Butler Station at 3.50am, 4.02am, 4.14am and 4.26am, and on the Mandurah Line, leaving Mandurah Station at 3.29am, 3.41am, 3.53am, 4.05am and 4.17am.
Fremantle Line passengers will be able to catch a train from Fremantle at 4.22am and 4.37am, Armadale Line passengers from Armadale at 3.47am, 4.05am and 4.23am, and Midland Line passengers from Midland at 4.05am, 4.20am and 4.35am

Route 621 will operate between the Vietnam War Memorial and the coach terminus near Wadjuk Way between 4.25am and about 9.30am (this does not operate during the dawn service).
All other buses will run to the public holiday timetable with some deviations in place due to CBD road closures.
