(19/9/2017) The people on the bus are happy CATs

An annual survey of public transport passengers has revealed people are very happy with Fremantle’s CAT bus services.

The Transperth Passenger Satisfaction Monitor for 2017 shows Fremantle’s Central Area Transit buses received a 98 per cent overall satisfaction rating.

Fremantle CAT passengers said they felt safe, thought there was plenty of space and information available and liked the friendly drivers.

The survey also showed the Fremantle CAT was the second most popular way for people to get to work, only just behind the private car.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said the high satisfaction rating was an excellent result.

“Encouraging people to use more public transport is a key element of the City’s Integrated Transport Strategy,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“Our support for the CAT bus is all part of the plan to make Fremantle a more connected, liveable and sustainable city.”  

Fremantle has two free CAT bus services – the Blue CAT which services South Fremantle and South Beach and the Red CAT which has stops at the Fremantle Arts Centre and Maritime Museum.

The Fremantle CAT buses are jointly funded by the City of Fremantle and the State Government, with City contributing 60 per cent and the State 40 per cent.
