Transpurple patch for Grand Final weekend

Transperth is boosting its bus and train services to Fremantle this weekend to accommodate fans heading to the port city for grand final celebrations.


Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the normal Saturday rail schedule would operate, but trains would have extra carriages.

“We are aware the City of Fremantle is planning a big street party on Saturday,” he said.

“Transperth will be coming to the party by ramping up our operations to make sure people can get to and from Fremantle.” 

“Each carriage can carry more than 150 people so we will be able to move thousands more down to Fremantle on the day.”

Transperth bus services will be strengthened with dozens of extra buses set to run on main roads into Fremantle including Canning Highway, Marmion Street and South Street.

Mr Hynes said South Terrace in Fremantle would be closed for the event and that would impact bus movements.

“Passengers who rely on routes along that road should check the City of Fremantle’s website for closures, and our website for diversion information,” he said.

He also said: “Go Dockers.”

More information is available through or the Transperth InfoLine 13 62 13.
