    SmartRider is Transperth’s electronic ticketing system. An embedded microchip enables the smartcard to communicate with processors located on board Transperth buses and ferries and at train stations. It enables value to be stored onto your SmartRider card, journey details to be recorded, and the value of the fare of each journey to be deducted from the stored value on your card. The SmartRider system is simple to use and the most important two things to remember are: 1) Add value to you card (money) 2) Tag on and tag off whenever you travel If your SmartRider goes into debit, you will not be able to use your SmartRider to undertake a new journey until you add value to your SmartRider card. Alternatively, you can purchase a cash ticket.
