Service will operate every 30mins during the day, every 20mins during peak and every 60 mins on weekends.
Route 37 - Kings Park to Redcliffe
Service shortened to terminate at Redcliffe Primary School. Service to airport replaced by a more direct and frequent service provided by route 40.
Route 40 - Esplanade Busport to Perth Domestic Terminal
Service modified to serve the Perth Domestic Terminal. Service will travel existing route to Brearley Ave, then Brearley Ave, Dunreath Dr, Fauntleroy Ave to terminate at Perth Airport. Then via MacRobertson Dr, Snook Rd, Ross Dr, Brearley Ave, Great Eastern Hwy to resume normal route. Service will be coordinated with the 36 service along Great Eastern Hwy. Route 40 will operate every 10-20 mins during peak, 20-30mins during the day and every 30mins on weekends. Great Eastern Hwy will have a service every 10mins from the two services on weekdays.
Further to the above, I have also come up with some other possible ideas including introducing two extra routes from the Airport aswell as the Route 40 to the Airport and a route to the International terminal.Route 130
- Perth Domestic Terminal to Fremantle (Daily*)
From the Domestic Terminal, via Fauntleroy Ave, MacRobertson Dr, Snook Rd, Ross Dr, Brearley Ave, Second St, Stanton Rd, Morrison St then via the existing 284 route to Abernethy Rd then via Wright St, Orrong Rd, Archer St then via Mint St, Albany Hwy, Basinghall St, Berwick St, Hill View Tce, Hayman Rd and into Curtin University Bus Station then via Hayman Rd, Lawson St, Manning Rd, Centenary Av, Leach Hwy into Bull Creek Station, then via Leach Hwy, Riseley St and into Booragoon Bus Station then via Riseley St, Canning Hwy, Queen Victoria St, Adelaide St, Queen St and into Fremantle Station to terminate.
The objective of this route is not only to provide access from the Domestic Terminal to Belmont Forum (Replaces 37 to Airport), Park Centre (East Victoria Park), Curtin University, Bull Creek Interchange, Booragoon Bus Station, provide residents access from Canning Hwy (west) to Booragoon and Fremantle Station but also for local residents in between these main centres. The total duration of the route would be approximately 1h 40m to 1h 50m with Airport>Curtin (40mins), Airport>Bull Creek (70mins), Airport>Booragoon (80mins), Airport>Fremantle (110mins). It would operate every 30mins during peak periods, every hour throughout the day and will operate on Saturdays and Sundays to Bull Creek ONLY. Quicker access to Fremantle from the Airport can be made by catching this 130 route to Bull Creek then transferring to a 501 or 502 to Fremantle.
This service compensates for the loss of the 37 to the Airport.Route 284
- Belmont Forum to Curtin University (Weekdays Only)
This service will now ONLY operate from Belmont Forum and NOT Redcliffe. The 284 will operate its usual route from Belmont Forum to Curtin University. It will operate hourly on weekdays only. The route 130 is an alternative option which may be used.Route 346
- Perth Domestic Terminal to Bassendean (Monday to Sunday)
From the Domestic Terminal, via Fauntleroy Ave, MacRobertson Dr, Snook Rd, Ross Dr, Brearley Ave, Great Eastern Hwy, Tonkin Hwy, Guildford Rd then via the existing 55 route to West Rd, then via Lord St, Railway Pde and into Bassendean Station. This route is planned to provide a service from the Airport to Bassendean which geographically is fairly close to the Airport. The route will also serve for extra capacity through Ashfield and Bassendean to provide a combined 30min frequency with the 55 service. Transfers can be made at Bassendean for services to Morley, Beechboro, Perth, Midland and Ellenbrook. This service will operate EXPRESS
during peak periods (bypassing Ashfield and Bassendean suburbs) by travelling direct along Tonkin Hwy and Guildford Rd. It will operate every 60 mins during the day via the above mentioned route on Monday to Saturdays. Duration of the route is 30mins via the normal route and 20mins via the express route. On Sundays, the service will operate the express route.Route 293
- Perth International Terminal to Perth Limited Stops (Daily)
From the International Terminal, via Horrie Miller Dr, Kewdale Rd, Abernethy Rd, Fairbrother St, Belgravia St, Great Eastern Hwy, Causeway, Adelaide Tce, St Georges Tce, William St into the Esplanade Busport. Service will stop at...
-Perth International Airport
-Airport Shopping Area
-Existing 293 stops between Abernethy Rd and Belgravia St (DROP OFF only on GEH to Perth, PICK UP only on GEH from Perth)
-Victoria Park Transfer Station
-All Terrace Stops as required (DROP OFF ONLY to Perth N
stop, PICK UP ONLY from Perth F
Service will operate every 20mins during peak, 30mins off peak, 45mins on weekends.
An additional 298 service operating against peak flow will replace the 293 to Kewdale Abernethy Rd and will terminate there.
So in this case, the following services will go to the Domestic Airport. Route 40 (Direct to Perth), Route 130 (Belmont, Curtin, Bull Creek, Booragoon, Fremantle) and Route 346 (Bassendean with connections to Perth, Morley, Beechboro, Midland and Ellenbrook)
From the International Airport, Route 293 (Direct to Perth via Belmont and GEH)
