Buses & Trains

Transperth is Perth’s public transport network, helping people get around the city by train, bus or ferry.

There are three train stations in the city; Perth Station, Perth Underground and Elizabeth Quay. Each of these is a short walk to the City’s main business, shopping and tourism precincts.For access to outer parts of the City, you will need to use City West, McIver and Claisebrook stations.

If you are travelling in and out of the city on a Transperth bus, most stops terminate at either the Wellington Street or Esplanade Bus Stations. Both are a short walk to the City’s main business, shopping and tourism precincts.

A free transit zone (FTZ) also operates within the City of Perth boundaries. You can travel on any bus with the City of Perth for free. FTZ signposts are displayed on the route limits. For travel outside the FTZ, please purchase a ticket from the driver or purchase a SmartRider from Perth Station or from newsagents.

Find further information on the Transperth website to plan your journey, access timetables and more.

Once you’re in the city, hop on and off the free CAT (Central Area Transit) buses which operate daily. The CAT buses have four routes covering all parts of the city. CAT bus stops have distinctive stands and real-time passenger information that tell you when the next bus is due. The CAT bus timetable is available on the Transperth website.

For tourists, a popular way to see the City is with CitySightseeing Perth who operate red double decker bus that allow users to hop on and off at Perth’s major tourist attractions.
