Trial continues

A trial of bus services in Bunbury, WA, has been extended to assess patronage over Summer

November 28, 2013

A trial of Sunday services on some TransBunbury routes, WA, has been extended for six months.

The six-month trial of Sunday services on routes 843 and 845 began in March this year, in response to community requests.

Spokesperson Matthew Saliacus says the original trial has been extended by six months to allow them to assess patronage over the summer period.

Route 843 between Bunbury Bus Station and Dalyellup will continue to run every 60 minutes between 7.30am and 6.30pm.

Route 845 will run between Bunbury Bus Station and Millbridge every 60 minutes between 7.30am and 5.30pm.

"There are many terrific events and activities to enjoy in Bunbury during the warmer months and having the option of using public transport is a huge plus for locals and visitors," says Saliacus

"Whether you’re taking the family out for a day at the Christmas Carnival or looking forward to tasting a few reds at the Wine Festival, taking the bus takes out the hassle of driving."

A review of patronage on these routes will take place at the end of the trial, before a decision will be made on the possible permanent introduction of the Sunday services.
