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Route 801 will be withdrawn and replaced by two new, more direct routes (806 and 808) operating Monday to Saturday with later services and generally hourly weekday services.

Route 802 will be withdrawn and replaced by new route 807, also operating Monday to Saturday with later services and generally hourly weekday services.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