New Route 415

On Sunday 1st April 2012 (not an April Fool!), Route 415 from Mirrabooka to Stirling will start operating. It will take Ravenswood Dr, Amelia St and Cedric Street, and run every 15 min on weekdays, half hourly of Saturdays and hourly on Sundays. This is a very useful link, which will increase cross-suburban connectivity, a market typically not well served by public transport. It serves both Northlands and Stirling Village shopping centres, including a direct link between Mirrabooka and Northlands, and also Northlands and Stirling Village. I am very happy that this vital link is started, filling in a major gap in the public transport network.

Changes to Routes 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 48 and 55 (Guildford Road)

On 18th March (tomorrow) there will be changes to Guildford Road bus routes (and the 44).There will be minor time changes, and there will be three extra weekday morning 42s leaving from Maylands peninsula, leaving at 5:18, 7:25 and 9:02. The first trip will allow provide public transport an hour earlier than currently to the peninsula, the second trip will provide extra peak hour capacity, and the last extra trip will extend the peak and spread out the load. In all not bad for the Maylands peninsula area
