The safety of our passengers and staff is our key priority. We are closely monitoring what is happening with coronavirus (COVID-19) and are in close contact with the relevant health authorities and will continue to follow their advice in terms of precautions and mitigation measures.
From Friday, 9 September the mask mandate will be eased on public transport. This means passengers no longer need to wear a mask while travelling with us, however, masks are still encouraged for crowded indoor settings where people are unable to physically distance. For more information on the measures visit wa.gov.au.
While restrictions on accessing remote Aboriginal communities have lifted, some communities may still decide to enforce their own restrictions on people entering.
Western Australians are reminded to register their contact details via the SafeWA app, encouraged to take up use of the free Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs), continue to practise physical distancing where possible, maintain good personal hygiene at all times and get tested when unwell.
