How do I get to events at Perth Stadium?

Perth Stadium’s 'fans first' philosophy is evident in an efficient public transport strategy that will ensure the efficient movement of 50,000 fans to and from the Stadium.

The Perth Stadium transport solution integrates train, bus and pedestrian options. It supports a cultural shift in the reliance on cars and will efficiently and safely move, within an hour of an event finishing, up to 50,000 people, or 83 per cent of a capacity crowd while reducing the impacts on nearby residential and environmental areas.

More information on the specific options, modes and timetables will be provided closer to the Stadium's opening in early 2018.

By train

Dedicated train services will move the majority of a full capacity crowd within an hour of an event finishing at Perth Stadium.

The now closed Belmont Park Station will be redeveloped to become the new six-platform Stadium Station.

The special event station's size and design will allow one train to depart approximately every two minutes.

East Perth Station will also be upgraded to accommodate 7,500 people who will walk to the station for Midland and Fremantle line services.

By bus

For patrons not living near a rail corridor, suburban bus services will operate from a dedicated 20-stand Perth Stadium Special Event Bus Stand located south of the Stadium, travelling to:

  • Claremont Station, via Esplanade Busport
  • Karrinyup Bus Station via Innaloo
  • Kingsway City Shopping Centre via Wanneroo Road
  • Mirrabooka Bus Station via Alexander Drive
  • Morley Bus Station via Beaufort Street
  • Ellenbrook Town Centre via Beechboro
  • Livingston Marketplace via Curtin University Bus Station
  • Hamilton Hill via Booragoon Bus Station and Kardinya Park
  • Hamilton Hill via Booragoon Bus Station and Melville
  • Fremantle Station via Canning Highway

The bus services will run with limited stops to minimise journey times and maximise reliability and bus turnaround.

A CBD shuttle bus service will operate between the CBD and an eight-stand Nelson Avenue Special Event Bus Stand, next to Gloucester Park.

By car

While the Burswood Peninsula has limited parking on the site, Perth Stadium is ideally located to make the most of existing parking infrastructure in the CBD and East Perth.

A CBD shuttle bus service will operate from the Nelson Avenue Special Event Bus Stand and take patrons past more than 40,000 inner city car bays along Adelaide Terrace/St Georges Terrace, Milligan Street and Wellington Street (see map).

Connecting the Nelson Avenue Special Event Bus Stand to Perth Stadium will be a pedestrian bridge across the Swan River. The pedestrian bridge also greatly increases the area within easy walking distance of Perth Stadium to include car parks near the WACA, Riverbank development and East Perth.

Patrons are also expected to take the train into the CBD or walk across the Windan Bridge to access other car park facilities.

By drop off

If you travel in large numbers by coach, or require ACROD facilities, Perth Stadium will have a designated area for these facilities. These are likely to be located to the south-east of the new Perth Stadium, and will be confirmed when the detailed design is completed.
