Have your say on bus route changes

Transperth invited public comment on a major change to the existing Route 490, which it said would follow a more direct path from Two Rocks to Butler, via Two Rocks Road and Marmion Avenue.

‘This change would mean that services no longer run via Brazier Road or Lagoon Drive in Yanchep and instead travel on a more direct path through Yanchep on Marmion Avenue, reducing journey times for passengers north of Yanchep Beach Road,’ it said.

‘Services are proposed to run every 20 minutes in peak times and 60 minutes off-peak Monday to Friday, and every 60 minutes on Saturdays and every 120 minutes on Sundays.’

Transperth said it would introduce Route 491 to run between the Butler station and Yanchep via Marmion Avenue, providing a second bus route through Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep.

‘The new service would work in conjunction with amended Route 490 to maximise service frequency from Butler station to Yanchep via Alkimos and Eglington,’ it said.

‘(It) will primarily operate between Butler station and Yanchep (Wilkie Ave near Grey Court) with selected services extending to St Andrews Estate and a new terminus on Yanchep Beach Road between Parkland Drive and St Andrews Drive.’
