Transport and travel options for Perth


Getting to Perth is easy and once you've arrived there are plenty of options for getting around this bustling city...

Getting around by bus

Public buses are an easy way to travel between Perth Airport and the city. From Elizabeth Quay Station in downtown, take the 380 bus to get to Terminals 1 and 2, or the 40 bus for Terminals 3 and 4. Each of these bus services run approximately every half hour.

Perth also has free bus services in the city centre. There are multiple bus loops which depart every 5-15 minutes between 6am and 7pm most days. Use the journey planner to map your route. Buses from the city centre to Crown Perth will cost approximately $4-$7 and will drop at Burswood road, approximately a 6min walk from the Crown Perth.

Getting around by train

Perth’s rail network is a great way to visit attractions across the city and reach the surrounding suburbs. Within the city centre, there is a free transit zone for trains travelling in the area between City West, Elizabeth Quay, and Claisebrook stations. To take advantage of the free fares, you must use a SmartRider card. Regular trains run from the Perth City Centre to Burswood station approximately a 10-minute walk from Crown Perth at a cost of $4-$7.

SmartRider card

To use public transport including buses, trains, and ferries in Perth, it’s recommended that you purchase a Transperth SmartRider card. You can purchase a SmartRider card at Transperth InfoCentres and SmartRider retail outlets. Before using Perth's public transport options, you’ll need to load the SmartRider card with money (there is a AUD $10 minimum) to cover your fares. Fares vary, but typically cost only a few dollars for rides within and close to the city. To start your ride, tap your card on the reader when you board your selected mode of transport and be sure to tap again when you disembark.

Catching Taxis

A taxi rank is located at the Riverside Entrance to the Casino within Crown Perth, near The Food Court. Taxis are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
