Transperth urging people to use public transport this New Year’s Eve

TRANSPERTH is putting on extra services this New Year to help make sure your celebration comes off without a hitch.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes urged people to use public transport to take the stress out of their New Year’s Eve travel.

“With train services running through the night and extra-late bus and ferry services, you can easily leave the car keys at home,” Mr Hynes said.

“All you need to do is plan ahead – visit the Transperth website, download the Transperth App or call the Transperth Info Line on 13 62 13 and plan your journey.

“And remember, if you’re travelling on public transport, be patient and considerate of your fellow passengers.”

There will be extra trains and increased capacity on all lines, operating on increased frequencies before and after midnight, dropping back to hourly as the morning progresses to link up with the New Year’s Day public holiday services.

Buses will operate on a Saturday timetable with additional services on selected routes.

The last services of the night will be Circle Route buses (999s), with the last departure from Fremantle at 4.05am.

Ferry services will operate on a Saturday timetable with additional trips at night.

Perth and Fremantle CATs will be running, but the Joondalup CAT is not.

All services on New Year’s Day will operate on a Sunday/Public Holiday timetable, except the Joondalup CAT, which will not be running.
