Armadale Trainline Residents Only 
In light of the Armadale Train Line closures during the 2024 Toyota AFL Premiership season, the Club is determined to minimise the impact on your game day experience. We recommend reviewing alternative routes offered by Transperth. Notably, a new Route 651 from Armadale Station and a gameday-only express Route 660 from Cannington Station to Optus Stadium will serve as convenient options.

  • There will be no trains between Armadale/Thornlie and Victoria Park stations.
  • Trains will continue to operate between Perth and Victoria Park stations, including Stadium Station on event days, weekends and public holidays.
  • Trains on the Midland, Airport, Fremantle, Joondalup and Mandurah lines will operate as normal. 

Changes to Suburban Event Buses

  • A new limited stops Route 651 will be introduced between Armadale Station and Optus Stadium.
  • The CBD Shuttle (Route 661) will be permanently withdrawn. For passengers wishing to access the city, extra Red CAT services will service Matagarup Bridge or train services are available from Stadium Station to Perth.
  • Route 652 (Mirrabooka) will move to Sailani Ave (over the Matagarup Bridge).
  • Route 653 (Morley) will move to Sailani Ave (over the Matagarup Bridge).
