TransBridgetown here to stay after successful trial
Bridgetown will receive a dedicated town bus service starting from February 2021, following a successful trial.
From February 1 2021, current orange school buses will be withdrawn and replaced with two new School Specials, 701 and 702. The two new TransBridgetown buses will be the same modern, silver and green buses as Transperth.
The decision to create TransBridgetown was made following an 18-month trial using two orange school buses attracted a significant number more fare-paying students than initially estimated.
