TransAlbany network is being reviewed with some significant improvements to services expected. Information can be found on the TransRegional webpage.

Route 801 will be withdrawn and replaced by two new, more direct routes (806 and 808) operating Monday to Saturday with later services and generally hourly weekday services.

Route 802 will be withdrawn and replaced by new route 807, also operating Monday to Saturday with later services and generally hourly weekday services.

Timetable changes to the other, longer routes (803, 804, 805). These changes will mean the inner suburbs of Albany get a significant uplift in frequency, comparable to the frequencies provided in the inner suburbs of Geraldton and Kalgoorlie and services that run later on Saturdays than those two cities (Geraldton only runs until 3pm on Saturdays, Kalgoorlie until 12pm, Albany will be until 5pm).

Improved public transport services for Albany

Following an extensive service review and in response to community feedback, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) is proposing major changes to the town’s bus routes to better service the City of Albany.

Community consultation will start in February on the proposed improvements to the TransAlbany public transport system.

The proposal includes the introduction of two new bus routes for shorter travel times and route changes to allow greater servicing and more direct connections (including a new extension to St Ives Retirement Village).

Service frequency will be increased to hourly on weekdays and extended until 5pm.

Community consultation will be conducted over five weeks, starting February 11, 2019.

Representatives from the PTA will be at the following locations to provide more information to the local community:

Albany Plaza Shopping Centre - February 12, 9am – 5pm
Chester Pass Mall – February 13, 9am – 4pm

The proposed changes are expected to be implemented in mid-May 2019.

Proposed changes to route 34 in the Bentley area. Route 177 was recently extended to Cannington Station on most trips and likewise with 72 on Sundays (most Mon-Sat services already went to Cannington). Hopefully Sunday trips on route 100 will be extended soon to compensate for the 34's rerouting.

Transperth website wrote:Route 34 - Proposed Service Change

Mon 11 Mar - Fri 22 Mar

We are inviting the public to comment on proposed changes to Route 34 between Curtin University and Cannington Station.

The proposed route change will improve access to the Bentley Centre, while removing the duplication of services along Manning Rd.

Subject to completion of the road network Route 34 will eventually run through the centre of the Bentley 360 redevelopment area.

View a map of the proposed changes.

Representatives from Transperth will be available to discuss the proposed changes at the following locations:

Curtin University Bus Station
Hayman Road, Bentley

Monday 11 March
From 10.00am -1.00pm.

Curtin University Food Markets
Lower Henderson Court, Curtin

Wednesday 13 March
From 11.00am - 2.00pm.

Thursday 14 March
From 2.00pm - 7.00pm.

Alternatively you can provide your feedback by emailing transperthplanning@pta.wa.gov.au or calling the InfoLine on13 62 13. Feedback is open until 5.00pm on Friday 22 March.

Here's an interesting proposal from out of nowhere...

I think the proposed Route 96 is a response to the (failed) trial of extending Route 97 to Leederville Station a while back. The 96 may work better due to its more direct route (straight down Thomas Street instead of the extended 97 winding its way up to Subiaco and then going along Cambridge Street). It might provide a more attractive alternative route for people travelling from the Joondalup line to UWA and QEII, and it could even take some of the load off the very busy 950.

For me, the question is "How will the 96 stay up in the peak hour traffic jams from the two lane bottleneck that is Thomas St between Hay St and Kings Park Road?" Sure, the timetables could just list peak hour journeys as taking longer, but essentially that's just making the delays a permanent part of life.

A possibility is for Routes 97 and 406 to be combined/coordinated. Route 97 could extend from Subiaco Train Station to Glendalough Train Station via Harbourne Street to connect with Route 406 to ECU.

This is no different to practically any other bus route in Perth that has longer travel time in the peaks to account for extra traffic volumes? Is Thomas St really that bad or out of the ordinary compared to other major arterial roads?

i had an weird idea how about extend 304 and merge with 298 so it run between perth city - midland via 298 route and 304 route. so after terminate at high wycome they can right at newburn route, right macao rd then continued to 298 however the 298 part between high wycombe and maida will get cut. or if they think is too long it can terminate 298 at belmont forum because it duplicate 288 and 38 and 298 from belmont to perth can replace by 288 and 38.

the reason why i choose this, so there are connection between south guildford, high wycombe to kewdale and belmont area (altough only benefit for workers)

I assume that some sort of Route 304 extension is likely as part of the Forrestfield Airport Link bus network.
