Student Smartrider 50 Cent Fare: Conditions of Travel

From time to time, members of the public write to us about incidents where students have chosen not to stand for adults, especially those with particular with needs, when travelling on public transport.

While Transperth is the agency responsible for all bus, train and ferry services in the metropolitan area, we know that many thousands of students use the public transport system each day in school terms. Indeed, they are subsidised to do so through the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare.

You are reminded that when travelling on the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare, you must stand for adults, particularly adults with special needs (eg. seniors, people with disabilities and pregnant women).

There are many people in our community who struggle to stand for long periods when on buses or trains. By offering them your seat you are not only adhering to the conditions of your subsidised 50 cent fare but helping someone in greater need.

Further details of conditions for the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare are on the Transperth website.
