How to go everywhere in Perth for $10 (for up to seven people) on Weekends and School Holidays

If there is one tip visitors should take, it is this - get on public transport after 9am (on weekdays) and buy a DayRider. If there are two of you, it will also only cost $10 for both of you - buy a FamilyRider which only costs $10 for two standard fare passengers (and includes up to 5 more children if they have an Australian concession card). However, the DayRider is not always available. It can be purchased on weekends and from 9am on a weekday if it is school holidays or Friday after 3pm during school days. It's one of those passes, that have so many conditions you need to read it carefully many times to see if you qualify. Does the FamilyRider or DayRider include the Airport? Yes it does! Here are the usual fares for Perth as of March 2023. 

Also, if you are using the Smartrider, note that you will never be charged more than $10 per day if you use public transport multiple times. 

So the Family Rider is available for these times - 

  • Weekends and public holidays – any time.
  • Monday to Thursday outside school holidays – after 6.00 pm.
  • Fridays outside school holidays – after 3.00 pm.
  • Monday to Friday during school holidays in Zones 1 to 4 – after 9.00 am.
  • Monday to Friday during school holidays in Zones 5 to 9 – after 8.30 am.
