THERE will be lots of decisions to make on Christmas day – Mariah Carey or Wham, turkey or prawns, Love Actually or Die Hard?

One big decision to take off your plate however, would be how to get around Perth city.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said buses, trains and ferries would be a fantastic way to get to the family barbecue or annual beach cricket tournament.

“It’s important to note that our services, while still running, change a little on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,” he said.

“There’s just one thing Transperth asks – before you travel on a bus, train or ferry, make sure you plan your journey, there and back.”

On December 25, trains and ferries will run at about a 30-minute frequency.

Buses will run on the Sunday and public holiday timetable, and CAT buses will not operate.

On December 26, trains and buses will run on a public holiday timetable.

The Perth and Fremantle CATs will operate but the Joondalup CAT will not.

Ferry services will operate on a 30-minute frequency early in the morning, switching to a 15-minute frequency after 10am.
