The Perth Busport is unique. Not only is the bus station fully underground it is also Australia’s first bus station to work more like an airport, with buses departing from different stands for each trip to maximise efficiency. The new busport has been designed to accommodate 50 per cent more bus movements than the old station, and by 2031 more than 200 buses an hour will use the new facility. It has air conditioning, features 160 seats, 16 bus stands, two bus entrance-exits, toilets and baby change facilities, and two kiosks. Lifts, stairs and escalators connect passengers from the entrances to the underground lounge level and all 16 bus stands. There are automated help points in all three entrances and three more down in the lounge. An Info Kiosk in the lounge with friendly staff on hand to help passengers with information and accessibility requirements. The Yagan Square entrance, the closest to Perth Station, is also home to Perth’s brand new Transports Info Centre.
