Transperth website wrote:School Special Changes for Term 1 2020

Mon 03 Feb

From Monday 3 February there will be changes to a significant number of school services across the Transperth network. These changes are made in order to offer the best possible service across the network.

Students intending to travel to school via public transport should:

  • If this is your first time using Transperth to get to school visit our Get On Board website for more information for students and parents
  • Plan your journey prior to the start of school. The JourneyPlanner will be updated with the new school services two weeks prior to the start of school. Remember to change the date in the JourneyPlanner to the first day of school
  • Not every school will undergo changes, however all students should plan their journey before starting the new school year.

Please note that as services change, this information will be updated. Please continue to check back until the start of term.

Not sure if this belongs here, but given the significance of the disruptions, I figured it's worth sharing (if only for posterity). The "Highway to Hell" event on Sunday 1st March, 2020 will result in significant service disruptions and deviations being put in place, as stated on the Transperth Website.

If anyone has a camera handy and is free on the day, it would be well worth making an outing to document both the special event services and the service deviations for freeway buses. In the latter case, I don't think any regular services have travelled this far south on the freeway since the opening of the Mandurah line in December 2007.

In brief (check the posted link for exact times and details):
Route 100 & 910: Will terminate on Clydesdale Street per the 148 & school-day 510 extension, and loop around Neil McDougall Park to resume their normal services.

Route 114: Services towards Perth will operate the usual route to Booragoon Bus Station, then deviate via Riseley Street and Leach Highway to access the Kwinana Freeway. Return services will not enter Booragoon Bus Station, and a temporary bus stop will operate opposite the bus station. It does not appear the route will service any additional stops on the detour.

Route 115: Services to and from Perth will use Leach Hwy to access the freeway and Booragoon Bus Station will not be serviced at all. It does not appear the route will service any additional stops on the detour.

Route 148: All services to be canceled due to lack of access to Canning Highway.

Route 205 & 206: Services to be truncated to Murdoch Station.

Route 500: All services cancelled after lunch.

Route 501: Services towards Fremantle will not enter Booragoon Bus Station, and use the temporary stop on Marmion St. opposite the station.

Route 510: Afternoon services will terminate at Bull Creek (access via Leach Hwy).

CircleRoute: Will not service Barry Marshall Parade (Murdoch University), and will instead service Murdoch Drive & South Street to resume normal routing. All interim stops will be serviced.

Additionally, there will be Special Event services running to cater for this event, also stated on the Transperth Website, although no timings or route information (including whether the services are express or not) are mentioned at this time. The routes are:
- Bull Creek Station to Tompkins Park
- Murdoch University (acting as Park & Ride) to Wireless Hill
- Fremantle Station to Leopold Hotel

A bit of regional news, here:

Transwa Website wrote: Additional road coach service
On Thursday 23 January 2020 the Premier Mark McGowan and Transport Minister Rita Saffioti announced Transwa will be implementing a trial for a non-stop road coach service between Mandurah and Bunbury, commencing in May 2020.

In addition it was announced Australind passengers will also receive compensation if the train is delayed for more than an hour due to mechanical or electrical issues with the train. The compensation will be in the form of a trip credit.

For more information please refer to the Ministers Media Statement.
