Possible disruption for Joondalup, Rockingham, Fremantle and CAT bus areas
Transperth is advising bus passengers in some areas of Perth to allow extra time or make alternative arrangements for the morning of Thursday October 11.
One of Transperth’s bus contractors, Transdev, has advised that some bus drivers intend to engage in a four hour work stoppage on Thursday from 6am until 10am.
Transdev operates services in the Fremantle, Joondalup and Rockingham contract areas. It also runs the Perth, Joondalup and Fremantle CAT services.
As a result, Transperth is advising passengers and parents whose children use public transport to get to school to make alternative arrangements where possible.
The full list of impacted schools is available on the Transperth website.
Resources will be focused strategically, with priority placed on busier routes and those servicing schools, universities and other important public destinations.
Transdev employs about 1000 bus drivers of a total of about 2500 around the metropolitan area.
Of those drivers, fewer 300 voted in favour of the action.
