Ring in the New Year with Transperth

Lots of people set New Year’s resolutions to exercise more or save money, so why not tick both boxes at the same time and take Transperth to your New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Trains will run right through the night with increased capacity and extra trains on all lines. Buses will run well into the early hours – the latest departure time is 3.33am (Fremantle to Rockingham), and the ferry runs until just after 1am.

“Wherever you want to go to celebrate the end of 2018, we can probably get you there – and back home again afterwards,” Transperth spokesperson David Hynes said.

“All you need do is plan ahead. There are lots of ways – visit the Transperth website, download the Transperth App or call the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13.”

On New Year’s Eve, buses operate on a weekday timetable with lots of additional services on selected routes before and after midnight. All CATs will be running to the normal weekday timetable.

The ferry will run on a 15-minute frequency throughout New Year’s Eve, other than a brief time in the morning (6.30am until 7.15am) and late at night (11pm until 1am) when it will operate on a 30-minute frequency.

Regular trains will run up to and immediately after midnight, with services dropping back to hourly as the morning progresses, to link up with New Year’s Day public holiday services.

All bus and train services on New Year’s Day will operate on a public holiday timetable, except the Joondalup CAT, which will not be running. The ferry will run at a 30-minute frequency between 7.30am and about 10am, then every 15 minutes until the last service from Mends Street Jetty at 9.45pm.

Passengers are reminded that as this NYE falls on a Monday, free late-night train travel does not apply. Passengers must buy a ticket or use their SmartRider. 

Holders of a Seniors SmartRider and other passengers eligible for free public transport do not need to purchase a ticket, but must still tag-on for public transport as normal.
