Possible disruption for Joondalup, Rockingham, Mandurah, Fremantle and Perth CAT bus services
Bus passengers in the wider Joondalup, Rockingham, Mandurah and Fremantle areas, as well as Perth CAT bus users should plan ahead for potential disruptions to services on Thursday and Friday due to planned industrial action.
Transperth bus contractor Transdev has advised that some bus drivers intend to engage in all-day work stoppages on November 22 and 23.
Transdev operates suburban bus services in the Fremantle, Joondalup and Rockingham/Mandurah contract areas, as well as Perth CAT services.
As a result, Transperth is advising passengers to plan ahead, make alternative arrangements or allow extra time for their journey at those times. Services not operated by Transdev will not be impacted.
Due to the nature of the action being undertaken, Transperth cannot confirm which trips will run and which will be cancelled.
All school special services, as well as those regular services that deviate to schools, are expected to run as normal on both days.
Perth Blue and Green CATs services will not operate, but the Perth Red and Yellow CATs will continue to operate with some disruption to service.
Transdev employs about 1000 bus drivers of a total of about 2500 around the metropolitan area.
