A shuttle bus service will operate in Murray from 12 October, 2016 following requests from the community for increased transport options throughout the Shire.
The trial service will link in with existing Transperth services and provide an opportunity for residents who currently have no public transport options to access two services throughout the week and one on a weekend.
It will allow residents living in the outlying localities of Murray to commute to the main hubs of Pinjarra and Mandurah, as well as Perth via the train service, to do their shopping, banking, bill paying and access health and social services.
The return service will run to Pinjarra from Coolup, Dwellingup, North Dandalup and North Pinjarra once each Wednesday and Friday to allow residents to do their shopping, banking, bill paying and to access health and social services. On Fridays the round trip will be approximately two hours longer, allowing residents to access facilities in Mandurah and beyond.
On Saturdays, a return service will be provided from each Murray locality to the Mandurah Forum Shopping Centre and Mandurah Train Station.
The trial service falls under the objectives of the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan, as the Shire continues to develop a connected, safe and inclusive community that provides for and lobbies for accessible services for all residents.
A review will be undertaken mid-2017 to consider a permanent service dependent upon usage.
