Transport to Joondalup and Mt Lawley
Edith Cowan College (ECC) is located on ECU’s Mount Lawley and Joondalup campuses. The Mount Lawley campus is close to the Perth city centre (5 kms) and the Joondalup campus is approximately 25 kms from the city centre. Both campuses are easily accessible by public transport. Transperth operates public transport including buses, trains and ferries, within Perth and the whole metropolitan area. We suggest exploring the City of Perth by taking advantage of the Free Transit Zone, as well as using the free CAT buses available in Perth, Fremantle and Joondalup.
The Transperth website is a great resource for transport in the Perth metropolitan area including information on timetables, routes, and pricing. Students are automatically eligible for travel concessions on public transport when actively enrolled in classes. Transperth operates specific buses to take students to and from campus, visit the Uni Services page for more information.

Cycling is also a great way to get to campus and is a great way to explore Perth; there are many bicycle routes around the city and local areas. We remind students that helmets are compulsory, when riding bicycles.

How to travel to the Joondalup Campus
ECU's Joondalup Campus is well connected by public transport. When travelling via the train network, Joondalup train station is your main destination (only trains with destination "Clarkson" or "Butler" are a direct service from Perth).
If you intend reaching ECU's main Joondalup campus, you can use one of the free CAT bus services that connect the Joondalup train station with ECU's main Joondalup campus. We suggest using the Red CAT to arrive onto campus, and the Blue CAT to leave the campus. From here you will need to take the free shuttle bus, taking you to ECC's campus.
Transperth buses also stop directly outside ECC's campus (ECU Joondalup Campus West), but these buses are not free. We suggest using the Transperth Journey Planner and entering Bus Stop Number 17781 as your destination, when travelling onto the campus; and enter Bus Stop Number 17784 as your departure, when leaving the campus. Alternatively you can use the free shuttle bus connecting the two campuses and one of the free CAT buses connecting you with the Joondalup Station.
