A few words about Transperth. The trains are clean, safe, and punctual. Frequency and availability of services is very good. There are bike paths along some train lines. A paper ticket from the airport to city centre costs $4.70 for an adult, a daily ticket for a family costs $12.80. Transperth may pay you up to $1000 dollars reward for reporting criminal activities. Comparing with Queensland's TransLink - no paper tickets, no daily tickets, no evening services, infrequent services, graffiti and scratched windows, and the extortion price of $18 for a 20 minute ride from the Brisbane airport to the city centre.
