The new Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct transport solution integrates train, bus and pedestrian options. It supports a cultural shift in the reliance on cars and will efficiently and safely move, within an hour of an event finishing, up to 50,000 people, or 83 per cent of a capacity crowd while reducing the impacts on nearby residential and environmental areas.
Moving people by bus
To complement the rail operations, an event bus network will operate for all new Perth Stadium events.
It is expected that for a 60,000 capacity crowd, buses will move:
- 8,100 people from the Stadium Special Event Bus Stand.
- 6,200 people from the Nelson Avenue SpecialEvent Bus Stand.
Stadium Special Event Bus Stand
Services to suburban areas will operate from the 20-stand Stadium Special Event Bus Stand, located south of the new Perth Stadium.
The Bus Stand's location separates bus and train passengers and pedestrians walking to the Pedestrian Bridge, to ensure spectators can arrive and leave events safely and efficiently.
A number of corridors, not serviced by rail, have been identified for potential bus routes, including:
- Claremont Station, via Esplanade Busport
- Karrinyup Bus Station via Innaloo
- Kingsway City Shopping Centre via
- Wanneroo Road
- Mirrabooka Bus Station via Alexander Drive
- Morley Bus Station via Beaufort Street
- Ellenbrook Town Centre via Beechboro
- Livingston Marketplace via Curtin University Bus Station
- Hamilton Hill via Booragoon Bus Station and Kardinya Park
- Hamilton Hill via Booragoon Bus Station and Melville
- Fremantle Station via Canning Highway
The bus services will run with limited stops to minimise journey times and maximise reliability and bus turnaround.
Nelson Avenue Special Event Bus Stands
Approximately 6,200 people are expected to walk across the new Swan River Pedestrian Bridge to access a CBD shuttle bus from the Special Event Bus Stands on Nelson Avenue.
Eight-stands are the launch site for a circular bus route, which will take patrons past more than 40,000 inner city car bays.
The clockwise circular route, selected to minimise CBD traffic disruptions, runs from Nelson Avenue to Adelaide Terrace/St Georges Terrace, along Milligan Street and continues on to Wellington Street (see above map).
