Travel between the City West and McIver stations is free in the city because it is within the Free Transit Zone ( FTZ ). All travel outside of the FTZ requires a valid ticket. The price of a ticket is determined by the distance you are travelling, and the fare type. The city is divided into zones and each zone has a fare for travelling within that zone. Tickets can be purchased on the platforms or throughout the stations. The ticket machines only accept coins and do dispense change. An alternative to purchasing a ticket on each journey is to purchase a SmartRider which is a prepaid amount placed on a swipe card at a discounted rate. The SmartRiders can be purchased from newsagents, and must be validated prior to travel on any of the trains. The SmartRiders can also be used on the Buses and Ferries . Warning the trains often have inspectors checking for valid tickets so don’t run the risk of having to pay a fine.

The journey takes just under three days and leaves from the Perth Railway Terminal on Wednesdays and Sundays at 11.55am. The train provides an interesting way to see the Nullarbor, or avoid some of the long driving. Visit the Indian Pacific web site for more information www.greatsouthernrail.com.au
