While all TransRegional vehicles are regularly cleaned, we are increasing the cleaning regime of our buses. Particular attention is being paid to surfaces passengers hold or contact. Regardless, surfaces where people touch – including poles, doors and handrails – should not be considered completely sanitised.
We recommend that passengers who usually buy cash fares on the TransRegional services consider buying a SmartRider card (where applicable). Also, we ask that passengers who usually add value to their SmartRider on board a bus, use alternative methods of adding value, such as Autoload.
We are reducing the need for our bus drivers to handle cash on Transperth bus services. Buses are being fitted with a cash box near the driver, into which passengers still using cash should drop their money before the driver issues a ticket or adds value to a SmartRider. We anticipate these boxes will be installed over the next few days. Where a cash box has been fitted, no change will be given.
Temporary closure of front seat on-board buses
The front seats of buses will be temporarily closed off, providing more space between drivers and passengers. We ask all passengers to keep any interaction with the driver to a minimum.
