Under the latest public health measures in effect for Perth and Peel, until further notice masks are mandatory on all Transperth services, unless you have an exemption. For more information on the latest measures visit wa.gov.au.

If you refuse to wear a mask that you have or when you are given one, you may be denied travel. If you are exempt from wearing a mask we ask that for your safety, and that of fellow passengers, you physically distance where possible on board our services. Primary school students (or younger) are exempt from mandatory mask wearing rules, however they can choose to wear a mask if they wish to.

When travelling with us there are a few things that we ask you do:

  • Wear a mask onboard all services unless you have an exemption. Mask wearing at bus stops, stations and ferry jetties is encouraged
  • Physically distance, where possible
  • Use a SmartRider when you are travelling. Please make sure it is registered and keep your registration up to date. You can do this here: Registering your SmartRider card (transperth.wa.gov.au)
  • When using the Free Transit Zone (FTZ) please use a SmartRider and tag on and off each service. You will not be charged a fare if your journey starts and finishes within the FTZ
  • When travelling on CAT buses, please use the SafeWAapp and scan the QR code on board each bus. As the code is unique to each CAT bus, you will need to do this on every CAT service you travel on.

Details on the SafeWA app can be found here: COVID-19 coronavirus: SafeWA (www.wa.gov.au)

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are asking passengers to follow medical advice and: 

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before and after using public transport, after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Or clean with an alcohol-based sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Additionally, if you are travelling on a bus you will need to use the front door to pay for your trip, however, to reduce contact between passengers and bus drivers, we are asking you to exit via the rear doors unless you require the front doors for low floor access.

If you suspect you may have COVID-19 symptoms or may have had close contact with a person who has COVID-19, you should call 13COVID.
