Ten new Transperth buses fitted with USB charging points have hit the streets of Perth.
Each of the ten buses are fitted with eight double USB points which passengers can use to charge their mobile devices while they travel. The points are fitted to the window frames of each bus meaning passengers are able to plug in their cable from their seat.
The buses are operating out of the Malaga, Palmyra and Welshpool depots.
Additionally, 26 charging points have been rolled out across the Perth, Perth Underground and Elizabeth Quay train stations.
What are your thoughts about the new USB charging facilities? What additions would you like to see to Transperth buses?
Transperth services will begin operating from the new $217 million underground Perth Busport on Sunday, July 17, 2016.
The new busport has been designed to accommodate 50 per cent more bus movements than the old above-ground Wellington Street Bus Station which was demolished in 2014.
Sinking the complex railway track system and the bus station has significantly transformed the centre of our capital city, helping to reconnect Northbridge and the CBD and set the stage for a blend of open space, plazas, walkways and existing, new and future developments. Passengers will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the new facility at a public open day on Saturday, July 16, before it opens for operations the next day.
The Perth Busport is fully air-conditioned, features 160 seats, 16 bus stands, two bus entrance-exits, toilets and baby change facilities, and two kiosks. There are three entry points at Yagan Square, Queen and King streets. Each entry point has lifts, stairs and escalators to move passengers between the ground level and underground lounge levels.
