How to use the Transperth app




What’s the difference between live and scheduled trips?

Live trips can be tracked. Scheduled trips are timetabled trips which cannot be tracked. Services will appear as scheduled until the driver logs onto the trip and begins the route – the service will then become live.

Live trips can be identified by a yellow LIVE icon next to the trip time.

A trip may also appear as scheduled if there is a problem with receiving GPS signal which may prevent the driver from logging into the trip.

My set journey/fare preferences are not showing within my journey results?

Your journey and fare preferences can be changed in the Options menu under JourneyPlanner, below the date and time section.

When you select your journey and fare options, ensure they are saved by selecting the yellow button at the bottom of your screen. These options are saved between sessions and do not need to be reapplied each time you open the application.

The Journey Options menu in the JourneyPlanner allows you to select the mode of transport you are travelling by, the number of changes between services, and the amount of walking distance and speed.

The fare type can be edited in the JourneyPlanner, under the Fare Options menu. You can select the type of fare and payment method.

Live tracking is lagging? My bus just arrived but the map shows it’s still on its way.

Live tracking of Transperth buses may be impacted by a number of reasons – ranging from hardware faults on the individual bus to the connection speed of the mobile device used to view them.

If the bus you are tracking appears to be behind schedule, it may be because the map within the Transperth app can occasionally take between 15-45 seconds to update.

Alternatively, the bus may have entered a covered area which interferes with the GPS signal.

We are working on improving GPS accuracy around particular areas, such as the Perth CBD, Perth Busport and Elizabeth Quay Bus Station.

My password is not working in the new app?

If your password is not working, you will need to reset your password through My Account on then login on the app using your new password.

You can also use the 'Forgot password?' button on he app log-in screen to reset the password. 

How can I disable app notifications?

You can disable both your app and email notifications under My Alerts while logged into the app. 

My SmartRider cannot be selected in the app - it is greyed out and says ‘invalid’?

Your SmartRider is most likely hotlisted. We hotlist cards to protect the remaining balance and deactivate your card if it is lost or stolen. Alternatively, you may not have added your active card to My Account or are not selecting the active card.

If your card is not hotlisted, but is still listed as ‘invalid’, please call 13 62 13 for further assistance.

Can I manage Autoload on the app?

Yes, Autoload can be activated and edited through the app.
