Why are these changes being made?

Transperth undertake regular reviews of the bus network to ensure that routes are still aligned with demand. The proposed network improves the alignment of bus service provision with demand, providing more direct routes and new connections, which is expected to increase patronage.

How much are these changes costing?

The changes are designed to be cost neutral and it is anticipated that increased patronage will improve sustainability of the network.

Why are the new routes being introduced or frequencies increased?

Transperth have identified a number of areas where demand for bus services is increasing so additional trips have been added to many Routes. New routes have been added to provide more direct connections between key activity centres.

Why are there some routes being withdrawn or reduced?

Routes are only being withdrawn or reduced where there is very low demand. In most cases alternative services exist or new services are being introduced to replace withdrawn services. Reductions have allowed enhancements to be introduced including a new direct service linking Malaga with Warwick along Beach Road and increases to frequency on many routes.
