Free CAT bus
Two free Central Area Transit (CAT) buses operate in the Fremantle area and are free to board for all passengers. The blue CAT Services depart every 10 minutes and the red CAT services depart every 15 minutes. Both services run 7 days a week, except on Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
The services go to places of interest in the central Fremantle area, including the Fremantle Train Station, Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle Leisure Centre, the Maritime Museum, E-Shed Markets, the Cappuccino strip and the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
All Fremantle CAT buses are modern and high–tech, complying with the stringent EURO2 emission standards. They are easily accessible with kneeling actions – a driver activated entry ramp and low floor. To board, simply wait at any CAT stop shown on the Fremantle CAT timetable.

A secure taxi rank is located at Henderson Street Mall and is open every Friday and Saturday nights from 11.00 pm to 5.00 am as well as some public holidays.
