Improved public transport services for Albany
Following an extensive service review and in response to community feedback, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) is proposing major changes to the town’s bus routes to better service the City of Albany.
Community consultation will start in February on the proposed improvements to the TransAlbany public transport system.
The proposal includes the introduction of two new bus routes for shorter travel times and route changes to allow greater servicing and more direct connections (including a new extension to St Ives Retirement Village).
Service frequency will be increased to hourly on weekdays and extended until 5pm.
Community consultation will be conducted over five weeks, starting February 11, 2019.
Representatives from the PTA will be at the following locations to provide more information to the local community:
- Albany Plaza Shopping Centre - February 12, 9am – 5pm
- Chester Pass Mall – February 13, 9am – 4pm
The proposed changes are expected to be implemented in mid-May 2019.
