Going to the Optus Stadium open day? Here’s your Perth public transport guide

TICKET holders to Sunday’s Open Day at Optus Stadium are being asked to use public transport to get to the event.

Additional train services and a shuttle bus from Elizabeth Quay Bus Station will operate all day to get people to the event.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said up to 110,000 people were expected to attend the open day, for which there are special transport arrangements.

“The services have been designed specially for the Open Day – so it’s important people check the Transperth website, and plan ahead,” he said.

“As with all events at the Stadium, public transport is included in your ticket, so you don’t need to pay or tag on at the station or on the bus.

“We will be running boosted train services on all lines from 7.30am to Perth Stadium Station until 10pm.”

A CBD shuttle (Route 661) will run between Elizabeth Quay Bus Station via Adelaide Terrace and St Georges Terrace.

Buses will run approximately every three minutes between 7.30am and 10pm.

Regular timetabled services will operate across the network.

Armadale and Thornlie passengers will be able to take a train straight to the stadium.

Fremantle, Mandurah and Joondalup line passengers will be able to catch a train to Perth Station or Perth Underground and switch trains for a shuttle service to Perth Stadium Station.

Midland Line passengers can catch the train to East Perth Station, which has recently had a major upgrade, and walk over the Windan Bridge.

Special-event trains will depart from platforms 4/5 and 9, and attendees are urged to listen to passenger announcements on arrival at Perth for directions.

The pedestrian and level crossings at Moore Street in Northbridge will be closed from 5am to midnight on January 21.

Pedestrians can use the McIver Station underpass at the east end of the station.

All lines will need to change in the city, except the Armadale and Thornlie Lines, which go direct to Perth Stadium Station.
