Take Transperth and beat the bugle this Anzac Day

Transperth is recognising the sacrifice made by the men and women of the armed forces by providing them with free travel all day on Thursday (April 25 – Anzac Day).

All serving and returned service personnel wearing their uniforms, campaign ribbons or medals can travel free on all Transperth bus, train and ferry services throughout the day.*

A number of special buses and trains will be running, including early-morning services to get people to and from the dawn ceremony in Kings Park.

Trains leave Mandurah (at 4.10am and 4.30am), Armadale (4.24am), Clarkson (4.18am and 4.38am), Midland (4.40am) and Fremantle (4.50am). They all arrive at Perth or the Underground between 4.50am and 5.10am except for the Fremantle train (5.18am) and the later Mandurah train (5.20am).

A free shuttle bus (620) to Kings Park will connect with these early trains from the following locations:
-Armadale/Thornlie, Fremantle and Midland lines – shuttles leave from Red CAT stop 24 outside the Wellington Street Bus Station
-Joondalup and Mandurah lines – shuttles leave from Stand W2 on William St, between Murray Street and Hay Street

After the service, there will be multiple shuttles returning to Perth Station.

Another free shuttle (621) will run every five minutes (except during the Dawn Service) between the Vietnam Memorial and the State War Memorial until around 8am.

Other than these specials, the Transperth system will operate as normal on a public holiday timetable.

For people travelling to the Fremantle Memorial Dawn Service, a special Fremantle train leaves Perth at 4.17am and will connect with shuttle bus (622) from Fremantle Station to Monument Hill. The shuttle returns to the station after the ceremony.

For timetable information or to find out more on transperth services, we encourage passengers to visit the Transperth website www.transperth.wa.gov.au or call the Transperth InfoLine 13 62 13.

* Normal fares apply for people not wearing a service uniform or insignia. Seniors, aged and disability support pensioners can use their SmartRider to access free travel (as is always the case off-peak on weekdays and all day on weekends and public holidays).
