Public Transport Plan 2031
About the plan
The plan will play a vital role in addressing congestion and accessibility issues as Perth grows to an expected population of 2.7 million by 2031.
This plan identifies the main public transport infrastructure needs and the links required between major activity centres such as universities and Perth Airport.
Key initiatives include the introduction of light rail, the development of rapid transit corridors, expansion of the rail network and more buses and trains.
