Planning is underway for the integration of the METRONET Airport Line to the public transport network adding new bus routes and increased train capacity. The new train line will add an additional five trains (three-car sets) to the network meaning an additional 20,000 passenger trips can be made each day. The Airport Line will be supported by an enhanced bus network adding 26 new buses to the network and 1.7 million annual bus service kilometres to the Transperth network. These changes may impact workforce numbers in the future, with an increased and sustained demand for bus drivers to service these additional routes.
