Free ANZAC Day travel for veterans and serving personnel
Transperth is recognising the sacrifice made by the men and women of our armed forces by providing them with free travel all day on ANZAC Day (Tuesday, April 25).
Normal fares apply for people not wearing a service uniform or insignia. Seniors, aged and disability support pensioners can use their SmartRider to access free travel (as is always the case off-peak on weekdays and all day on weekends and public holidays).
Extra bus and train services will operate - including early-morning services - to get people to and from the dawn service in Kings Park.
“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.
“This will be the first full-scale ANZAC Day Dawn Service event at Kings Park since the pandemic, and organisers are preparing for a crowd of thousands to pay their respects to all those who have sacrificed and served.
“We expect many of them will use public transport to get to the event and buses will be specially busy, so we recommend planning your journey and leaving plenty of time to arrive for the start of the service.”
