Types of tickets

Our two types of tickets are SmartRider cards and cash tickets.

SmartRider cards

This is the cheapest and most convenient way to ride on all Transperth services. The card fits into your wallet and is reusable, letting you top-up with additional funds as you need.

For more information go to SmartRider.

Cash tickets

You can buy cash tickets from ticket machines at train stations and ferry jetties, and from bus drivers.

For more information go to Fares.
