From Sunday 8 May, there will be changes to selected bus services in the south-eastern metropolitan region, improving bus services to Murdoch for passengers residing in Armadale, Harrisdale and Piara Waters.
These changes involve the introduction of the new Route 518 as well as route changes to the existing 519 service. In addition to these changes, the trial Route 529 service will be withdrawn due to low patronage.

Bus stops on Armadale Rd between Nicholson Rd and Tapper Rd will no longer be in use.

Route 519 will undergo a route change and selected trips will now extend via Nicholson Rd and Armadale Rd to Armadale Station. This route will provide a connection between Armadale Station and Murdoch Station at a similar frequency to the former 529 service.
The amended 519 will no longer travel through sections of Harrisdale which will now be served by new route 518.
The amended 519 will operate Monday to Friday on the following frequency:

From last service on Friday 6 May 2011, trial Route 529 travelling between Armadale and Cockburn Central stations will be withdrawn.
Route 529 commenced on 17 October 2010 on a three month trial basis. The trial was extended for a further three months to ensure Route 529 operated during the busiest time of the year.
Services however, failed to attract sufficient patronage to justify its ongoing provision.
Route 529 will be removed from the South Eastern 8 timetable.
