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.

*Please note that due to Covid no change will be given if you pay with cash onboard a Transperth bus. If you must pay with cash, then please pay with the exact money. To find out how much your fare will be please plan your journey here Transperth JourneyPlanner or visit Transperth fares.
