Local Transport

Free Central Area Transit (CAT) Services
Within the city centre of Perth and Fremantle you can enjoy free and easy transport on the modern CAT buses. Theses buses run on several routes, with numerous and easily recognisable stops, with real time passenger information, along the way. The CAT buses are a great way for delegates to move between their city hotel, the train station and other city and Northbridge attractions/venues, free of charge. A free CAT service also operates in the city of Fremantle.

The blue CAT Services depart every 10 minutes and the red CAT services depart every 15 minutes. Both services run 7 days a week, including public holidays except Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
The services go to places of interest in the central Fremantle area, including the Fremantle Train Station, Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle Leisure Centre, the Maritime Museum, E-Shed Markets, the cappuccino strip and the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.

All Fremantle CAT buses are modern and high–tech, complying with the stringent EURO2 emission standards.

All of the Fremantle CAT buses are easily accessible with kneeling actions – a driver activated entry ramp and low floor. To board, simply wait at any CAT stop – they’re all shown on the Fremantle CAT timetable and the services are free to use.

For further information about CAT services visit the Transperth website.
