Our Transperth division provides public transport services in the greater metropolitan area of Perth

Transperth services

The Transperth system consists of an extensive bus network, a fully-electrified urban train system, and ferry service.

Bus services in the Perth metropolitan area

At the end of 2023, Transperth was operating a fleet of 1573 buses, servicing 283 standard timetabled routes, 233 school-bus routes and ten CAT (Central Area Transit) routes. On a typical weekday, this involves 16,878 standard trips, 233 service trips and 1277 CAT trips.

Three contractors provide these services under the Transperth banner: Path Transit, Swan Transit and Transdev.

There were more than 69 million total bus boardings in the 2022-23 financial year, increasing 17.8 percent compared to 2021-22.

Train services in the Perth metropolitan area

A train fleet of 330 railcars that operate as two, three, four or six-car trains make an average of 8938 weekly trips over six train lines:

  • Armadale/Thornlie 
  • Fremantle
  • Joondalup
  • Midland
  • Mandurah
  • Airport line (which opened in October 2022)

These services are operated by PTA's Transperth Train Operations division.

There were more than 53 million total rail boardings in the 2022-23 financial year.

Ferry services in the Perth metropolitan area

There are three ferries (the MV Phillip Pendal, MV Shelley Taylor-Smith and MV Tricia) which make 122 trips a day Monday to Thursday and 134 trips on Friday on the summertime table, and 60 trips on an average weekday on the wintertime table.

The contract to operate these services for Transperth is held by SeaLink.

Ferry total boardings per service kilometre increased 31.7 percent to 12.79 - caused entirely by higher boardings. There were more than 702,000 total ferry boardings in the 2022-23 financial year.
