Wellington Street Bus Station was a Transperth bus station located next to Perth railway station in Perth CBD, Western Australia.

History[edit]

Wellington Street bus station was opened on 2 March 1973 as Perth Central bus station by Premier John Tonkin. After just over 40 years of service, the majority of bus services were moved to the Roe Street bus station on 12 January 2014.[1][2] Wellington Street bus station remained in use for a further two weeks due to roadworks in the central business district, temporarily servicing Beaufort Street bus services, closing on 27 January 2014 and being demolished soon after.[3][4] The station will be replaced by the new underground Perth Busport on the same site.[5][6] To cater for the remaining bus services during the construction period, a temporary replacement Wellington Street bus station opened on 6 July 2014, occupying some of the original site.[7] This closed on 1 February 2015.[8]

It had 17 stands and was served by 34 Transperth routes operated by Path Transit, Swan Transit and Transdev WA.
