The Public Transport Authority (PTA) is launching a trial of free wi-fi for passengers at specific locations across the Transperth network.
The trial will start at Elizabeth Quay and Subiaco stations and on two high-frequency buses mainly operating on Route 950.
Later this year two B-series trains, which operate on the Joondalup and Mandurah lines, will begin providing free wi-fi, with all locations operating for eight weeks from this point.
All free wi-fi zones will be clearly marked with signage.
This trial is to determine whether the technology can be easily installed across the network at stations and on trains and buses with a sufficient coverage and speeds for passengers.
Following the trial, technical data and customer feedback will be assessed to determine whether free wi-fi is a service that passengers find valuable and can be viably rolled out across the network.
We encourage all passengers within these zones to connect to the free network and provide feedback on their service via the Transperth website.
More information about how to connect to the free wi-fi network can be found at the Transperth website.
We appreciate all feedback during this trial phase via the online feedback form, the InfoLine on 13 62 13 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
