  • Mount Lawley
  • Maylands
  • Bayswater
  • Ashfield
  • Bassendean


Route 41

  • Is proposed to extend to Bayswater Station via Sutherland Street and King William Street
  • This will provide a new connection to Bayswater Station for residents south of Guildford Road
  • Route 41 is proposed to operate approximately:
    • Every 15 minutes in peak
    • Every 60 minutes interpeak
    • Every 60 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays
  • A small number of additional trips will operate.

Route 42

  • Is proposed to undergo a route change travelling via Eighth Avenue and extending on Clarkson Avenue terminating near the Maylands Police Complex
  • All trips will travel via Eighth Avenue (no longer travelling via Central Avenue or deviating via Ninth Avenue) providing significantly improved connectivity and bus frequency to the Maylands Town Centre and trip attractors near Guildford Road
  • Bus stops would be removed on Central Avenue and East Street, with new bus stops proposed on East Street (east of Peninsula Road) and alternatives stops also available on Guildford Road
  • The service would be extended on Clarkson Avenue terminating near the Clarkson Avenue boat ramp carpark providing better public transport access to Maylands Water Park and Maylands Police Complex
  • Due to high demand this will receive a significant frequency upgrade
  • Route 42 is proposed to operate approximately:
    • Every 7/8 minutes in peak
    • Every 30 minutes interpeak
    • Every 30 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays
    • Will operate earlier and later services than current timetable.

New Route 43 (previously known as Route 48)

  • Is proposed to undergo a route change travelling via Beechboro Road South and Hudson Street in Bayswater
  • This will provide better access to public transport for resident’s northeast of Bayswater Station and reduce duplication with the Circle Route on Coode Street

New Route 44 (previously known as Route 55)

  • New Route 44 will operate between Bassendean Town Centre and Bayswater Station following a similar alignment to the former Route 55 in Bassendean and Ashfield
  • Different to the former Route 55 service, it is proposed that Route 44 operate via Dunstone and Wyatt Road and terminating at Bayswater Station
  • This will reduce walking distance to public transport for residents west of Tonkin Hwy
  • Some bus stops (which are very poorly patronised) would no longer be served in the Ashfield/Bayswater industrial area on River Road, Goongarrie Road, and Katanning Street
  • Passengers travelling to Perth CBD can transfer to a connecting train at Bayswater Station which operates approximately every 7-8 minutes throughout the day. The train from Bayswater to Perth Station takes 12-14 minutes resulting in a quicker journey time for passengers travelling to many key destinations. Note that later in 2024 when the Ellenbrook Line opens, train frequency will improve from every 6 minutes in peak to every 4 minutes, with off peak improving to every 5 minutes
