On 22 February 1999, the route was extended to become a circular route. The routes were renumbered from 98 and 99 to 998 and 999 on 31 January 2016, as to signify being a part of Transperth's premium, high-frequency services.
Since 25 November 2007, fares have been determined according to the same Transperth zonal system used by other bus routes and trains in the region; Prior to that date, the CircleRoute used its own distinct zones.
Especially after the route was renumbered in 2016, SmartRider transaction records for registered Transperth users indicates 098T and 099F.
