So, you’ve figured out the Student SmartRider is right for you, maybe you’ve even designated a spot in your wallet for it to live. Now, let’s learn how you can get your hands on one.
Primary students - initial card
There are two ways to get a Student SmartRider. You can use a manual application form or place an online order. The initial card is free if you use the manual application form.
Ordering with application form
Complete an Application for Student SmartRider form, have it authorised by your school administration, and mail it to the address shown on the form.
If your primary school is registered you can order online. To see if your school is registered check the Monitor WA website.
Secondary students – initial card
There are different ways of getting your initial Student SmartRider card depending on whether your school is a “participating school” or registered for online ordering.
Participating secondary schools
Check with your school’s administration to find out if it’s a participating school. A participating school automatically processes a Student SmartRider application for all new students, receives the cards and issues them to students.
Some secondary schools are registered for online ordering. To see if your school is registered check the Monitor WA website.
If your school is neither a participating school nor registered for online ordering, you'll need to complete an Application for Student SmartRider form, have it authorised by the school’s administration and send it to the address on the form.
Picking up a card in person
Once you have a completed Application for Student SmartRider form you can head to Monitor WA to purchase a Student SmartRider. The SmartRider will cost $5 (cheque or cash only) and no value can be added by Monitor WA.
Monitor WA is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am until 3.00pm and located at Unit 2, 17 Macadam Place Balcatta.
