“Our northern suburbs need WA Labor Government's METRONET Yanchep Rail Line Extension to continue to grow and connect our city centre in Joondalup.”
- Emily Hamilton MLA


The WA Labor Government's major investment in our public transport network is transforming how our communities connect.

The Yanchep rail extension is well underway, with significant works underway, connecting northern communities with our Joondalup city centre. The Yanchep Rail Extension will be operational from on 14 July 2024.

Perth’s first electric buses are currently operating on the Joondalup CAT and select suburban bus routes and is shaping the future of public transport powered by renewable energy.

The new electric buses operating in Joondalup carried more than 250,000 passengers in the first 12 months of operation and covered more than 140,000km, saving approximately 230 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in the process.


✓ Joondalup Line to be extended 14.5km with three stations - Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep - opening 14 July 2024

✓ Local jobs in construction and maintenance of the rail

✓ Local jobs with new employment opportunities stimulated along this major transport corridor

✓ More WA jobs, building 246 new C-series railcars locally over the next decade

✓ Delivering Perth’s first electric CAT bus right here in Joondalup

✓ Joint State-Federal $250 million investment to deliver 130 electric buses built locally, here in WA.
