Make Transperth your first ride of the Perth Royal Show

The Flying Octopus and The Crazy Mouse might not be your cup of tea at this year’s Royal Show, but there’s one great ride that you really don’t want to miss – a trip with Transperth … specially given that it’s free this holiday Monday.

Forget the car, fighting traffic and trying to find a park, Transperth services are the best way to get to the Showgrounds.

According to Transperth spokesman David Hynes, Show week is the busiest single week on the Transperth calendar.

“We’re here to take the stress out of getting to the Show,” Mr Hynes said.

“Taking Transperth doesn’t just mean you don’t have to get stuck in traffic or drive around endlessly looking for a parking spot, it’s also a very affordable, family-friendly way to travel.

“A FamilyRider ticket costs just $12.10, and up to two standard (full fare) and five concession holders can travel to and from – all day in fact – on the one ticket.

“Additional trains will be on the system from this weekend to ensure the ride is as comfortable and speedy as possible for all Transperth passengers.”

The State Government has decided that public transport across the whole Transperth network will be free on the Queen’s Birthday public holiday (Monday September 28) so, whether or not you are going to the Show, there’s no need to tag on or buy a ticket on Monday.
