AFL: West Coast v Gold Coast

Sat 04 May

Optus Stadium

AFL Bounce Down 6.10pm

This week's game is guaranteed to be a good one – especially since your footy ticket includes travel on all Transperth services for three hours either side of the match (special event buses only operate one hour after the final siren). If asked, proudly show off your ticket to the driver or inspector.

Keep in mind, you must have your football ticket or membership card on you to travel for no extra cost. If you’re planning on collecting your ticket at the venue, you will need to pay a normal fare to get there.

Transperth operates an integrated public transport plan to connect event-goers with the Perth CBD and wider metropolitan area.
