Free Transperth travel after midnight on New Year’s Eve
For the first time in more than a decade, the tens of thousands of people that flock to the city to celebrate New Year's Eve will have access to free, frequent and safe trips home with complementary travel on the Transperth network from midnight onwards.
Transperth has joined forces with WA Police to ensure celebrations stay festive with about 290 transit officers rostered on for New Year's Eve, further supported by a significant police presence across the city.
Additional police resources, as part of the policing operation, will be deployed immediately to any identified location as required and WA Police will be patrolling transport hubs and travelling on trains and public transport to support Public Transport Authority staff.
More than 200 additional services across trains, buses and ferries will operate after midnight.
Additional contracted security guards will shadow late-night bus services throughout the early hours.
Transperth has scheduled 113 extra train services, 117 extra bus trips and a number of extra ferry services to run after midnight. This is in addition to those services which operate after midnight on a normal weekday.
Extra buses and railcars will be on standby in case any services experience significant demand.
Free travel will remain in place until 6am on January 1, 2019. Visit the Transperth website for more information about New Year's Eve services.
