We are the primary supplier of public transport services in Western Australia. The Public Transport Authority (PTA) is responsible for the following transport services:

  • Rail, bus and ferry services in the metropolitan area (Transperth)
  • Public transport services in regional centres (TransRegional)
  • Coach and rail passenger services to regional areas (Transwa)
  • School bus services
  • Designing, building and maintaining transport infrastructure
  • Protecting the long-term viability of the State’s freight rail corridor and infrastructure

Since 2010, the state’s three key transport agencies – the Public Transport Authority, the Department of Transport and Main Roads – have worked together as the transport portfolio to coordinate a smarter, integrated and optimised transport network for WA.

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.

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.
