It's an exciting time to be working at the Public Transport Authority

With a pipeline of METRONET projects under way, our network is expanding. This is the single largest investment in public transport that Perth has seen and will provide jobs long into the future.
This is your opportunity to be part of transforming Perth’s transport network.



Why work at the PTA

The PTA is a customer service-oriented organisation, responsible for the delivery of efficient and sustainable passenger transport services to the public.

At the PTA we are dedicated to building an organisational culture which attracts, retains and develops the right people, with the right skills, into the right job.

A world-class public transport system

Perth’s public transport system is the best in Australia and one of the best in the world. Behind this system is more than 2000 dedicated, diverse and dynamic individuals who together work to provide a reliable, modern and efficient transport service for the public.

From engineers to signal technicians, finance to safety officers, and railcar drivers to transit officers. The opportunities are endless. And with an unprecedented amount of railway and associated works being undertaken in the next five to 10 years, you could be a part of some major infrastructure projects that only come around once in a lifetime.   

Making a difference

Working at the PTA means you will have the opportunity to contribute to the community and provide a public service that many West Australians use every day.

Our transport network plays a vital role in Perth’s sustainable future by offering alternative and environmentally friendly options for transport.

It connects areas of Perth and the regions, improves safety, and reduces the level of traffic congestion and travel times. Our network expansion will mean even more communities have access to the benefits and option of more sustainable travel long into the future. 

We work by our values

Safety – We are committed to safety and protecting your future.
Respect – We value and respect our customers, suppliers and each other.
Recognition – We recognise each other for achievement, initiative and innovation.

When you join the PTA, you will be walking into a friendly, professional and supportive work environment. We have a culture of continuous improvement and forward thinking to ensure we meet both the current and future needs of the public.

In addition, our employees enjoy a wide range of benefits, including:

  • A good work-life balance, with access to flexible work options, wellness programs and gym facilities.
