Locals urged to use TransBroome bus

Transport Minister Dean Nalder took a ride on one of Western Australia’s northern-most bus services today, and is urging Broome residents to do the same.

Mr Nalder said the State Government had invested $25,000 in a six-month trial until August 2 and the service would only be continued if enough passengers used it.
The TransBroome route operates three times a day and connects Roebuck and Broome North residents with the town centre. The 20-minute loop departs the town centre at 8.05am, 12.05pm and 3.05pm on weekdays.
“With only two months left in the trial, I urge passengers to vote with your feet if you want the service to continue,” the Minister said.
The contractor, Pearl Town Bus Service, already operates three school bus routes using three Public Transport Authority (PTA) buses and the trial is using the same buses outside of the school peak.
“Investing in new public transport initiatives in WA’s regional towns is something I look on very favourably, which is why I asked the PTA to conduct this trial,” Mr Nalder said.
“So consider leaving your car at home.  When a two-section ticket only costs $2, it’s undoubtedly a fantastic way to get around town.
“It’s important to provide public transport in our regional areas - particularly tourism hot-spots like Broome.”
