BUS users across Perth can expect delays or possible cancellations today as a result of industrial action by drivers.

The protected industrial action is the latest in a series of strikes by Transdev drivers, which Transperth contracts to operate some of its metropolitan fleet.

A limited number of bus services operating out of the Rockingham, Mandurah, Fremantle and Joondalup areas may be affected.

The disruptions also affect a number of routes that travel to Perth CBD and high frequency routes 910 and 970.

While the work stoppage is for four hours, bus services may take an additional two hours to return to normal.

Transperth recommends making alternate arrangements where possible.

Services operated by Path Transit and Swan Transit remain unaffected.
