Lost, stolen, damaged or faulty SmartRider cards
Lost or stolen SmartRiders

Damaged or faulty SmartRiders
If your SmartRider card is faulty and it is determined that the fault is not as a result of misuse, a replacement card will be issued free of charge.
If the card is damaged as a result of misuse, normal SmartRider card replacement fees apply. The new card will have the previous stored value and any concession entitlements transferred onto it.
To obtain a replacement for a damaged or faulty SmartRider card, you will need to present the damaged/faulty card at a Transperth InfoCentre.
Looking after your SmartRider card
Like a bank or credit card, you should keep your SmartRider card safe and secure. Do not bend your card and avoid exposure to extreme heat (such as clothes dryers), static electricity and water.
SmartRider should not be punctured for purposes of attaching a clip as this will damage the aerial and microchip.
The SmartRider card fee or any subsequent added value can not be refunded or transferred. The SmartRider card fee or any added value are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another person's SmartRider.
