Transperth the answer for Skyworks traffic, parking problems


Transperth is coming to the Australia Day party with a big number of extra bus and train services to help Perth families get to and from the fireworks spectacular.

High levels of security will also be in place, with extra Transit Guards on trains, at stations and on mobile patrols.

Public holiday timetables will apply, with lots of extra afternoon services and deviations on some bus routes because of road closures.  There will be additional trains on all lines from midday.

CAT buses will not be operating, and ferry services will be suspended around noon to meet safety requirements in setting up the fireworks show.  The Mends Street jetty and the Transperth section of the Barrack Street jetty will be closed to the public from 12.15pm.

After the event, a frequent train service will operate from the city on all lines.

Because of road closures throughout the city, in South Perth and around Kings Park, all bus services from Perth after 6pm will leave from one of six locations – the City Busport, the Wellington Street Bus Station, and four locations in the eastern end of St George’s Terrace.

There will be special buses leaving from the Fremantle, Gosnells and Midland train stations, the Mirrabooka and Morley bus stations, and from the Joondalup, Stirling, Warwick, Whitfords and Clarkson interchanges.  A limited number of services will also leave from South Perth (Mill Point Road)

The annual Australia Day fireworks show is the biggest single event on Perth’s public transport calendar and Transperth urges all patrons to be patient, especially as tens of thousands of people seek to leave the city by bus or train at the same time.  It also advises that alcohol may not be consumed on Transperth services.

Further information is available through the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13 (TTY:9428 1999) or by visiting the website at
