As far as major stations for a capital city goes, it's not great, but free trains between 12:30am and 3:00am are definitely a boon
If you need to catch a train, this is the place for you.
Rennovations have really improved tbe old girl.
Ticket machine doesn't accept credit cards, no 20 or 50$ bills and there is no ticket counter
Much better since the redevelopment, a lot of the dodgy folk have been moved elsewhere.
It's a place for catching trains...
For a free ride, use smartrider to go to any stations within FTZ, or you'll get charged (when buying ticket at the machine)
Budget cuts to rail mean transit guards will be friendlier than ever!
This is Perth. Please mind the gap.
People stop half way up on the moving side of the escalator really annoying if your about to miss your train KEEP MOVING PEOPLE GEEZ
Eavesdrop on the locals - great entertainment "nah bruva, don't worry 'bout 'dem. Dey be too busy pushing needles in they arms fella". "You tell me to shut up and I'll boot ya f**kin' door in". #Perf
The best transport system in Oz
More bins on platform 4 would be nice
Just to confirm what we all know: on an escalator you stand on the LEFT and let people pass on the RIGHT. Easy, Right?
Stop leaving early
*ding* Doors closing.
Where's platform 9 and 3/4?
Always put your earphones in when travelling even if your battery runs out on your iPod/phone. Less chance of weird-ass conversations with the crazies.
Do not make eye contact
The bakery up top has the best soft white rolls for sale. Mmmm!
Just saw transit police checking tickets for sitting on the platform chairs - so even if you're not on a train don't get caught without a ticket ($100 fine)
The place in Perth to catch a train.
To take a photo you need to have public liability insurance for $5million & apply in writing for permission 4 weeks before you want to take a photo. #bureaucrap
The Eastern Concourse bridge to the Urban Orchard has become a gauntlet of beggars and charities. Can't they tell I'm running late?
How do I log into this station?
Long wait for a train? Sit in The Orchard for some peace & quiet.
Taking train on sunday is stupid because you will spend most of the time on waiting. Perth transport suck >.<
There is something wrong with the ticket machine today, cause there is a line, bet machine is taking its time today lol
Transperth suck... Never on time and the guards ar wankas
Free train rides 2.15am and 4am Friday and Saturday.
Early morning rush. :-)
Be careful travelling at night.
Anyone that says checking into trainstations is stupid, is definitely stupid.
If u wanna go to the toilet do it before u tag in otherwise u gotta tag off cuz the toilet is outside the tag machine ( for girls)
With all the construction going on, be sure to leave time to get to the right platform.
Wear a shirt that says "LIFE" and stand on a corner handing out lemons.
Remember: transit police have full powers of arrest! Common sense and common decency will keep you free :)
muffins from bocelli coffee shop on eastern concourse are the best! There coffee rocks too! :)
The chips at the food kiosk on Armadale platform have unexpectedly excellent hot chips!
Can only take a bicycle on the train before 4pm or after 6:30pm on weeknights or face a fine.
train 'police' are not police. they are just angry little men who's parents didn't love them and/or got bullied at school.
Get on early and the station is actually pleasant..
It is around a $150 fine if you're travelling on a student concession ticket with an invalid smart rider. You need proof of current enrollment for the student fare.
Watch those escalators. A chick just got her dress caught in one
Found an awesome coffee shop called Frisk on Francis St, just up from Elephant & Wheelbarrow. I go there everyday now, so good ;D
Get a vegemite roll from the bakery up the top. Cheap-ish and full of brown goodness.
The bakeries are awful!! I'm pretty sure I got food poisoning here.
Train "Police" just doing their job. Agree buy a ticket be polite and will they. As for railway station bakeries quick and easy want a proper meal go elsewhere.
If you buy a ticket like you're meant to then the 'police' will have no quarrel with you... Trackside Bakery is your garden variety bakery. Sustenance when you have no other immediate option to eat...
