To complement the rail operations, a special event bus network will operate for Perth Stadium events.
Perth Stadium Bus Station
It is expected that in a 60,000 capacity crowd, buses will move up to 8,100 people from the 22-stand Perth Stadium Bus Station located at the southern side of the venue. Event day buses will travel between the Stadium and suburban locations, many of these being large bus hubs at centres not serviced by rail, such as Ellenbrook, Mirrabooka, Morley and Booragoon.
This station is currently being built as part of the Perth Stadium construction works and will be ready for operation ahead of the opening event on 21 January 2018.
Victoria Park Drive Bus Layover Facility
To support the Perth Stadium Bus Station, a layover facility will be built next to the Tennis Centre between the Graham Farmer Freeway and Victoria Park Drive.
- Is required to be close to the Stadium to allow the rapid ‘call up’ of buses.
- Will store up to 70 buses on major event days.
- Will consist of a bitumen area with lighting, fencing and a small facilities building for drivers.
- Will include a green buffer of landscaping.
- Removes the requirement to park buses on Victoria Park Drive.
- May have mixed use on non-event days.
Construction will start in late 2017 and will be completed in time for the first event at Perth Stadium on 21 January 2018.
The Nelson Avenue Special Event Bus Stands will have eight stands to move 6,200 passengers on event days direct into the CBD. This facility will be built as part of the Swan River Pedestrian Bridge works.
