BrizCommuter recently visited Perth on business for a few days and tried to use the public transport system as much as possible. Here is a review.

I think easily the 2 most attractive things for me about Perth are:

1. Their governance and contracting arrangements work very well.

2. They have exceptionally good control over their branding and standardisation of passenger information - probably better than many much larger and busier systems overseas, and better than the other comparable operations in Australia (which would be Adelaide and Melbourne which fall down on this front for a number of reasons).

The other problems they have largely come down to the usual problems afflicting every Australian city, which is lack of density and lack of funds to make up the infrastructure shortfall or deliver service upgrades.
