The University of Western Australia's new Business School at the southern end of campus now has a door-to-door service thanks to a new Transperth bus route.
The route links the shops, cafes and markets of Subiaco to several major hospitals as well as UWA's vibrant southern campus, and provides a scenic tour of the Matilda Bay foreshore.
Although not due to be officially opened until May, the Business School is already semi-operational and staff, students and visitors are urged to take advantage of the green, safe transport option. Along with the Business School, several other major buildings are situated at the campus' southern end including the School of Sports Science, Exercise and Health and its outdoor laboratory.
Subiaco shuttle bus route 97 takes in the Business School, with a terminus on Hackett Drive south of the school, and there are extra stops on Fairway south of Clark Street and on Hackett Drive near the UWA Refectory and Tavern.
Passengers can transfer to UWA's main buses on Stirling Highway, or connect to Subiaco train station. The new route also provides a better public transport service to and from the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre.
The old Subiaco shuttle terminus on Fairway, near what was known as the Motorola Building, is no longer used and passengers are advised to use the bus stop on the south side of Stirling Highway between Fairway and Winthrop Avenue.

The Business School opening from midday on Sunday, May 3, 2009, is free and open to the public.
