Unplanned Disruptions

What you need to know about unplanned disruptions to train services. 

Unplanned Disruptions

Occasionally, we have unplanned disruptions where trains need to be immediately cancelled, usually for a short period of time. When this happens, coordinating train replacement buses takes a little longer as our buses are also operating timetabled services throughout Perth.

If you get caught on the system during an unplanned disruption, here are some steps you can take to get to your destination.

Station Staff and Announcements
In an unplanned disruption, the best thing to do is speak to station staff or listen out for PA announcements to find out if replacement buses are being organised.

Train Replacement Buses
If train replacement buses have been organised, they’ll pick up at the train replacement stop close to the station. Keep an eye out for signage pointing the way. If you want to find out more about train replacement buses, how they work and how much extra time the journey could take, visit our Train Replacement Buses page.

Alternative Bus Routes
As well as train replacement services, there are a number of timetabled buses that operate near stations. You might find these provide a quicker journey. You can check these routes by line and station at our Alternative Bus Routes page.
