Leave the car at home this Christmas period

Christmas can bring up a lot of old arguments – like who out of the Aussies and Kiwis can claim ownership of the pavlova – but one thing that is clear; it’s worth leaving the car at home this festive period.

Whether you’re off to a work Christmas party or a family gathering, Transperth’s services are the best way to travel (unless you happen to have a sleigh).

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said buses, trains and ferries were an ideal way to get around this festive season.

“But it’s important to note that our services change a little on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,” he said.

On December 25, trains and ferries will run at about a 30-minute frequency. Buses will run on the public holiday timetable, and CAT buses will not operate.

On December 26, trains and buses will run on a public holiday timetable. The Perth and Fremantle CATs will operate but the Joondalup CAT will not. Ferry services will operate on a 30-minute frequency early in the morning, switching to a 15-minute frequency after 10.15am.
