The State Government has announced changes to the metropolitan bus network to service the new METRONET Airport Line and better link the community to the line’s new stations.
These changes follow a period of community consultation late last year, with modifications made to the bus network in Perth's eastern suburbs to connect the local community to the new High Wycombe, Airport Central and Redcliffe stations.
The new bus network will provide residents with high-frequency services, a longer spread of operating hours, more services running seven days a week and improved access to community hubs such as Midland and Cannington, as well as the Airport.
More than a dozen services will connect to new stations, delivering an extra 1.7 million bus service kilometres each year.
90 additional bus stops and 27 new buses will be rolled out across the network, with around 50 additional drivers to be hired and trained as part of the expansion.
Eight bus services will connect to the new High Wycombe Station, and seven will connect to the new Redcliffe Station.
Services to Redcliffe Station will include a new high frequency circular route 292, providing regular connections to Terminal 3 and Terminal 4.
The new bus network will come into effect when the Airport Line opens, and early works associated with bus stop planning is already under way. Bus timetables continue to be refined and will be released closer to the opening date.
