If he is old enough (Year 4 upwards), encourage him to use public transport – click on travel smart to find information on the different options. Walking and biking is also strongly encouraged – for information on cycle paths go to cycle map Fremantle to Perth. Note: Parents are advised to check the commencement date of the CCGS/MLC southern suburbs bus service with Buswest on 9395 4444.
