The Public Transport Authority (PTA) has begun work to establish a new bus depot at Harries Way, Pinjarra.
The PTA purchased the partially-developed site in 2018, with further upgrades to be undertaken before the depot becomes operational in 2020. This will include construction of a new administration office, and installation of hardstand, fencing, lighting and CCTV.
The new depot will improve the efficiency of Transperth bus services in Pinjarra, as these services will no longer be required to travel from the Mandurah depot to commence their route. The Pinjarra depot will also take pressure off the Mandurah depot, which is nearing capacity.
Upgrade work will begin later this year, with the new depot expected to be operational from early 2020. Once fully developed, the Pinjarra bus depot will have capacity for around 30 buses.
