CRICKET fans making their way to Optus Stadium for the first major event this weekend will be the first to try special bus services designed to reach areas without a dedicated train line.
The event – the One-Day International match between Australia and England – will see 60,000 people from across Perth head to Burswood.
The additional bus services for full-capacity events will start along select routes two hours before the event starts and will run every five to 10 minutes.
Cricket fan Sally Edwards said she went to the test game at the stadium and the public transport options were “amazing”.
Stadium event bus stops will be clearly marked with a black sign on top of them in the lead-up to the match.
