Optus Stadium

Transport to and from the Stadium is included in your ticket.

Transperth operates an extensive public transport network to get patrons to and from Optus Stadium. The event transport network connects event-goers with the Perth CBD and the wider metropolitan area.

Please note that the services will vary depending on the event, and we ask that all passengers use the JourneyPlanner to accurately plan their trip prior to an event.

Events at Optus Stadium are joint ticketed, which means the cost of public transport is included in event tickets for three hours either side of the event. Please note special event buses run for one hour after the conclusion of the event.

Matagarup Bridge Bus Stands - Changes to bus services

Route 661

The CBD Shuttle will run as a circular route, anti-clockwise before the game and clockwise afterwards, operating to and from Matagarup Bridge Bus Stands (on the East Perth side of the bridge) via Wellington St, Milligan St, and Adelaide/St Georges Tce.
