Shelter on Jetty for Transperth passengers
Two new shelters were installed at the Transperth ferry jetty in South Perth today.
It’s the first time passengers waiting for the ferry at Mends Street have had access to shelter in the departure area while they wait for their service.
The partially enclosed shelters cost about $90,000 and will protect passengers from the weather.
They were transported to the jetty from Fremantle by barge and then craned into place this morning.
As part of the project, two new ticket machines will also be installed under one of the shelters, making buying a ticket even more convenient for passengers. They are expected to be operational mid next month.
The Transperth ferry operates on a 15 minute frequency until June 1 when the winter timetable comes into effect.
