Plan before you party this New Year’s Eve
There’s plenty to plan for New Year’s Eve celebrations – from the outfit to the venue – but don’t wait until the champagne is on ice to plan your journey.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said Transperth was operating additional services to get party-goers to and from the New Year’s Eve action.
“Let us take the stress out of your celebratory travel plans,” Mr Hynes said.
“With train services running through the night and extra-late bus and ferry services, you can easily leave the car keys at home.
“All you need to do is plan ahead – visit the Transperth website, download the Transperth App or call the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13 and plan your journey.
“And remember, if you’re travelling on public transport, be patient and considerate of your fellow passengers.”
There will be extra trains and increased capacity on all lines, operating on increased frequencies in to and out of midnight, dropping back to hourly as the morning progresses to link up with the New Year’s Day public holiday services.
Trains will be running about every 15 minutes until 3am, when they will revert to about every 30 minutes until 4am and then approximately hourly until 6am.
People leaving the Origin NYE 2016 event at Claremont Showgrounds will have access to trains on a 10 minute frequency from midnight.
Buses will operate on a Saturday timetable with additional services on selected routes, before and after midnight. The last services of the night will be Circle Route buses (999s), with the last departure from Fremantle at 4.05am.
Ferry services will operate on a Saturday timetable with additional trips at night. Perth and Fremantle CATs will be running, but the Joondalup CAT is not.
All services on New Year’s Day will operate on a Sunday/Public Holiday timetable, except the Joondalup CAT, which will not be running.
