Optus Stadium

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

We operate 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 the services will vary depending on the event so all passengers are encouraged to use the JourneyPlanner to accurately plan their trip prior to an event. When held on a weekday, services will differ and there will be no suburban event buses or direct Joondalup/Fremantle line trains before the 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.
