PUBLIC transport users could shave more than 45 minutes off their travel time if a bus connection between Armadale Station and Cockburn Central goes ahead.
I think there needs to be more services from Murdoch to Armadale everyday. At the moment they alternate with short trips to Piara waters but the frequency is over a hour and if i want to go to Armadale station i need to bus to Thornlie, Cannigton or Madington and go via train. It would also be great if there was a direct connection from Armadale or through to Freo direct.
Yes, a trial will prove that there is sufficient demand. My husband works at Murdoch uni and my father goes to work to Cockburn central station - we live in Seville Grove. It would be wonderful for them both to catch the bus to work and back - saving money, time and reducing congestion on freeway and lowering GHG emissions etc. Can't wait for the trial.
Whether it's for my studies at Murdoch uni, or visiting friends & family in Mandurah, the Armadale/Cockburn connection will be indispensable. I give it 5 stars.
Excellant idea, it has taken me up to 1 and half hours to get back to Armadale vie the route.
Equates to 3 hours round trip for the day.
How many stops? if the bus was to go vie Armadale rd to Cockburn.
We moved to Armadale last year and I drive to Freo every day to work at Notre Dame Uni. It would be lovely to have the option of a direct bus from Armadale to Freo (albeit through Cockburn Central) on those days when driving isn't viable.
It's about time. It will also make travelling to Beaconsfield TAFE much easier. Just tell us when?
ABOUT TIME!!!! I live in Harrisdale, my husband catches the train from cockburn and my son goes to a school in Armadale. At the moment if my son caught the bus to school it would take him 1.5 hrs by catching 3 different buses and walking over 2.5km's (Harrisdale - South St Station - Cannington - Armadale).
As a regular from Armadale to Mandurah this route can not come soon enough
I think its a GREAT idea.
It should go ahead as soon as possible!
It would cut so much time of a usual weekend visit to Mandurah.
it would be greatly appreciated and useful.
A bus link to kwinana should be done aswell, as we are out in byford, and is much quicker, but i would definatly use the cockburn link.
I think it would be a great to put public transport from ARMADALE to COCKBURN CENTRAL as many people like myself dont have a licence and would prefer the quicker there.
