PIBT is located on ECU's Mt Lawley campus, within easy access of Perth city. Some of our classes are also offered at the Joondalup campus. Transperth operates public transport including buses, trains and ferries, within Perth and it's outlying areas. A free transit zone, with transport on Transperth buses and trains, is available every day on selected routes within the central city area.
The Transperth website is a great resource for transport in Perth including information on timetables, routes, and pricing. Students are also eligible for travel concessions on public transport - student concession application forms for SmartRider cards are given at Orientation.
