Make Transperth your Getaway Car

Taylor Swift fans are encouraged to use public transport to get to the show this Friday night.

Public transport is included in all tickets to the event.

Concert-goers should check the Transperth website for the best travel arrangements, and allow plenty of time to get there with gates opening at 5.30pm.

For this event, train passengers need to change in the city to the Armadale Line to reach Optus Stadium.
