Transperth's two-zone fare cap means that you'll never pay more than a two-zone fare no matter how far you travel. You can use a SmartRider or buy a cash ticket* and both can be used across all Transperth train, bus and ferry services. 

SmartRiders

SmartRider is a reusable smart card which allows easy, hassle-free travel on Transperth services. You can save up to 20% off your fare** and they are available to buy at Transperth InfoCentres and from retail sales outlets across Perth.

New SmartRider Hubs have been installed at Yanchep, Eglinton and Alkimos stations, meaning you will be able to purchase a new SmartRider directly from your local station. SmartRiders will be available for $10 each, and you will need to load a minimum of $10 onto the card during the purchase. 

Cash Tickets

These can be purchased onboard buses or from ticket machines at train stations and ferry jetties.

Every Sunday, travel is free for all SmartRider holders. You will need to tag on and off with your SmartRider but you will not be charged a fare, no matter how far you travel.

Free travel is available on all Transperth bus, train and ferry trips from first service until last service.

Please note that the free travel does not apply to late night services after midnight on Saturday and if you are travelling without a SmartRider then you will need to purchase a cash ticket.

FAQs

How do I find out specific information related to my child's school?

The schools most directly impacted by the Yanchep extension will be receiving a letter directly from Transperth containing detailed information relevant for each school community. These schools include Alkimos College, Northshore Christian Grammar School, St James’ Anglican School and Yanchep Secondary College. 

For all other schools, please use the Transperth Journey Planner to plan your journey.

When will the Yanchep Line open?

The new stations opened to the public on Monday 15 July, with timetabled bus and train services commencing from first service.

How often do trains run on the Yanchep Line?

Services on the Yanchep Line will run every 5 - 10 minutes in peak, and every 15 minutes off peak.

Will I pay more to travel to and from Yanchep?

No. You won’t pay more than a 2-zone fare for any journey on the Transperth network.

Where can I find the timetables for the new stations and bus routes?

Use the Transperth JourneyPlanner on the website or app to plan your journey for timetable information.

Is there parking at the new stations?

Yes, parking is available at all three new stations on the Yanchep Line. 

Visit Parking for more information on parking at Transperth stations.

Are the new stations on the Yanchep Line accessible?

Yes. We design all new infrastructure to be accessible.

Are there accessible toilets at the new stations?

Accessible toilet facilities can be found at Yanchep and Eglinton stations.  All facilities have been constructed to meet current disability access requirements.

Note that changing hoists are not available.

Will existing Joondalup Line bus routes change?

Yes, there will be changes to bus services.

Why is Transperth not operating services between Yanchep Station and Yanchep National Park?

Transperth was allocated funding to implement a bus network to support new train stations at Yanchep, Eglinton and Alkimos with the opening of the Yanchep Line. 

As Yanchep National Park represents an area of low public transport demand and with the focus on the new bus services to the rapidly expanding residential area, it was not deemed feasible to operate a new bus route to the national park. 

Why does my child need to change buses to go to school now?

The opening of the Yanchep extension has required Transperth to redesign the surrounding bus network to provide access to the new stations. 

Route 490 and 491 were withdrawn and replaced by multiple routes which feed into the new stations providing connectivity to a range of current and future planned schools. The need to transfer at the nearest bus or train station is common throughout the metropolitan area as it maximises journey options for passengers and ensures equitable access to public transport for the community. 

Why is Yanchep Station so large? why are there so many bus stands for only four routes?

Yanchep is expected to grow significantly in the future, the design for Yanchep Station has been future proofed to ensure that there is sufficient capacity as development progresses and new bus routes are required to service growing residential areas.   

Why is Route 483 no longer serving the RAAFA Estate in Merriwa on a full-time basis?

The alignment for Route 483, operating between Clarkson and Butler Station has been modified as a result of concerns associated with the unprotected right turn from Hughie Edwards Dr onto Marmion Av.  

SmartRider ticketing data demonstrates that the vast majority of passengers who currently board on Hughie Edwards Dr will still be able to board the Route 483 bus service as it will now deviate to RAAFA Estate in Merriwa during the off peak, seven days a week. 

Passengers boarding on Marmion Av will continue to be served with New Route 482. 
 

Will the new stations be staffed?

Yanchep and Alkimos stations will be staffed by Customer Service staff in the morning and Security staff in the afternoons.

Eglinton Station will not be staffed at this stage.
