Description

The underground lounge at the busport

Perth Busport is located underground, west of Perth railway station, between Wellington, Roe Street and Milligan streets. There are two bus access points, from Wellington Street and Milligan Street, and three passenger entrances, at Yagan Square, Queen Street, and King Street. The underground lounge is air-conditioned, contains 160 seats, two kiosks, and digital screens displaying updated departure information. Buses loop around the lounge, which is surrounded by double-glazed glass, and has sixteen stands grouped into four areas, each with four stands.[5][6]

History

Perth Busport started operating on 17 July 2016, served by 25 Transperth routes operated by Path Transit, Swan Transit and Transdev WA. The temporary Roe Street bus station closed on the same day as the new busport opened.[7]

Bus routes

34 bus services start and terminate at Perth Busport.[7] The busport uses a dynamic stand allocation system, meaning that services are only allocated a specific stand as they approach the busport.[8]
