Transport just the ticket for Perth Glory grand final
Football fans heading to the Perth Glory v Sydney FC A-League grand final at Optus Stadium on Sunday (May 19) should make Transperth a key part of their game plan.
There will be hundreds of extra special event bus and train services, with travel for three hours before and after the game included in event tickets.
This will be the first time an A-League match has been played at Optus Stadium. With a record-breaking crowd now expected to attend, the highest level of public transport will be mobilised to meet demand.
Depending on the service, special event suburban buses - including the new 655 Kalamunda service - will operate on a five to 10 minute frequency from about 1.45pm. The CBD shuttle will run on a five-minute frequency from about 2pm. On the way home, special event buses will run for one hour after the final whistle.
Trains stopping at Stadium Station will leave Perth Station approximately every seven minutes from 12pm. Special event trains will be running from Stadium Station to get football fans home, or they can cross the Matagarup Bridge and take advantage of the safe drop-off and pick-up point in East Perth.
Fans are encouraged to check the Transperth JourneyPlanner or app and plan their trip ahead of time, leaving plenty of time to reach their destination.
Detailed event-specific travel information is available on Transperth's website.
