New Underground Wellington Street Bus Port

18 July 2016

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.
