Perth is a very spread out city. With suburbs in every direction the easiest way to get around is by car. However, if you are new to the city and don’t have access to a vehicle, you are able to travel around Perth using its’ public transport system, Transperth. Transport services run all over the city and outer suburbs, with frequent services including buses, trains and even ferries. You can pay by cash or card per trip, but the simplest way to pay is to get yourself a Smartrider.
