Travel to the Christmas Pageant with Transperth
Transperth representatives have travelled to the North Pole for talks with Santa Claus about arrangements for families attending Perth’s Christmas Pageant this Saturday.
Mr Claus and Transperth were able to finalise details of extra train services for Saturday to make sure people can get to the parade and home again, quickly and safely.
Some CBD bus routes will also be amended to make sure the pageant procession, particularly Santa’s sleigh, can make it through the city streets without any problems.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the pageant was one of the most popular big community events in Perth, which meant a busy day on public transport.
“More than 60,000 people used public transport to get to the pageant last year and we expect that number to increase on Saturday,” he said.
Our team works months in advance to ensure the network is prepared for this event.
“We know that many of the families catching the train this Saturday will not be regular Transperth commuters, so they might not hold a SmartRider Card and will need to buy a paper ticket.”
We suggest that people heading into the city allow some extra time to buy a ticket when they arrive at the station.
“Transperth offers a FamilyRider ticket which allows unlimited all-day, system-wide travel for a group of up to seven people (two of whom can be standard fare passengers) on weekends and public holidays. At $11.60, it will save a family on the cost of individual fares.”
To travel on Transperth bus, train or ferry services you need to buy a ticket. Transperth offers various concessions and a DayRider as well as the FamilyRider and standard fares.
