PERTH

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia. Perth has a population of approximately 1.4 million people and Western Australia has a total of nearly 2 million people. Western Australia is the economic power house of Australia, contributing a large proportion of the nations export income.

 
 

The State is one of the world’s largest exporters of iron ore and natural gas, and also has very large reserves of many other minerals. Perth has a very easy-going lifestyle – the beautiful Swan River and inner-city parks like Kings Park add to the relaxed, natural feel. There is much to see and do in this part of the State, from swimming in crystal clear ocean waters to enjoying a sunny afternoon sipping a cold beer at an open-air pub.

Public Transport in Perth is administered through the Public Transport Authority (PTA) which is an agency of the State Government. The PTA controls all public transport in Perth and also operates the urban train network. Bus operations are contracted out to private operators who lease, maintain and operate a fleet of over 1200 public transport buses which are owned by the State Government. All public transport operations are controlled by the PTA which sets fares, routes and timetables.

A single ticketing system allows passengers to use the same ticket to travel on buses, trains or ferries throughout Perth.
