Transperth Reminder

Transperth have noticed a high percentage of students still paying cash fares on the buses instead of using the SmartRider cards available. It works out significantly cheaper using the SmartRider system and you gain additional discounts by utilising the auto-reload option available. If you do not have a SmartRider card see Mrs Lynn Murray in Student Services to make an application.

Increased participation in the SmartRider system also has the following benefits:

  • Safer more efficient loading of buses when the students are boarding
  • Reduced fare evasion and;
  • Reduced anti-social behaviour
