Transperth Bus finances from 2006-2017

Underutilised bus services in Perth are costing the WA Government more than $410 million a year, a new report has found, as fewer people catch buses and services become less efficient.

It recommended the best way to reduce costs would be to for the Public Transport Authority (PTA) to cut routes, especially those that duplicate train routes.

Cutting the six services that run non-stop along Kwinana Freeway between Canning Bridge and Elizabeth Quay, for example, would save an estimated $4 million and 100,000 bus trips a year.
