EXTRA bus stops could be built next to Perth’s latest retail destination near Perth Airport.
Transperth is working with the City of Belmont to secure more stops beside DFO Perth ahead of the direct factory outlet’s opening on October 3.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the new DFO complex was well serviced by an existing bus route.
“Route 935 operates from the city to Perth Airport’s T3/T4 precinct via Dunreath Drive every 15 minutes at peak and every 30 minutes off peak,” he said.
“We are working with the City of Belmont to secure an additional set of stops on Central Avenue closer to the DFO.”
Mr Hynes said when the Redcliffe train station was completed, it would be “the primary mode of public transport access to the centre”.
The $150 million DFO Perth, which is expected to house 113 specialty stores, restaurants and cafes, was jointly funded by shopping centre manager Vicinity Centres and Perth Airport.
A playground will connect to its dining precinct.
