Perth Stadium Transport
A ferry service was considered, but the number of passengers it could carry is too small for the significant crowds expected at the Optus Stadium.
The Department of Transport is constructing a jetty at the peninsula. The Burswood Public Jetty will provide safe access to the stadium precinct for those choosing to be dropped off by private vessel or charter craft including private ferries.
The jetty has been designed in consultation with the PTA to accommodate potential public ferry use if require in the future.
More information can be found online here.
Not stopping trains at these two stations after major events means Transperth can move people away from the Stadium as efficiently and safely as possible.
Special event services cannot stop at these stations because trains leaving the stadium are six-cars - too long for the platforms at McIver and Claisebrook.
During these times, Transperth will operate a replacement bus service for passengers from Claisebrook, via McIver (along Wellington Street) to Perth Busport.
