Ring in 2024 with free travel for all on Transperth services

Transperth has travel arrangements covered for everybody this New Year’s Eve with extra services and the added benefit of a free ride home. 

Travel on all Transperth services will be free for all, including cash ticket users, between midnight and about 6am on New Year’s Day to help those out celebrating to get home safely.

Trains will run right through the night and well into New Year’s Day on all lines, with increased capacity and extra services. Extra buses on selected routes will also run either side of midnight, and the ferry until 1am.

On New Year’s Eve, buses will operate on a Sunday/Public Holiday timetable with additional services on selected routes before and after midnight. CAT buses will run on a regular Sunday timetable with additional services on the Red CAT. The Joondalup CAT will not be operating.

Trains will operate on a Sunday/Public Holiday timetable with additional services operating into and out of midnight. After midnight, trains on all lines will leave Perth about every 15 minutes with reduced frequency after 2:45am. 

The ferry will run on a 15min frequency until 11pm, then every 30mins until the last ferry departs from Elizabeth Quay Jetty at 1am and Mends Street Jetty at 1.15am.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said planning to catch a train or bus to and from New Year celebrations was the simple and smart choice.

“Thankfully it’s easy to have an enjoyable night and get home responsibly with Transperth, with more trains on the rail and more buses on the road either side of midnight to help you get around,” he said. 

“Even better, all train services post-midnight will be free, making Transperth the logical option for revellers this New Year.”

After 6am on New Year’s Day, all bus, train, and ferry services will operate on a public holiday timetable. Those with a SmartRider will still be able to enjoy free travel on buses, trains and ferries until 28 January as part of the Summer of Free public transport initiative.
