Like most capital cities in Australia the public transport is free in the city which for Perth really only includes the CAT nudes and Transperth buses. The trains once they leave the central station are basically outside of the free transit area. The CAT buses...More

CAT buses are free, as are all services in the CBD. It's a pity that suburban buses run so infrequently - once an hour in my suburb 9Km from CBD.

Great experience from Transport as it is all free in CBD area. Every large city should do the same, it will make everybody's life so much easier. Thank you for that huge convenience.
