Parents/guardians should be aware that all students require a Student SmartRider to access concession travel on Transperth, bus, rail and ferry services, and Transwa country road and country rail services.
In order to issue the cards in the first instance the Public Transport Authority (PTA) requires that parents/guardians give their permission for the College to provide student details to the PTA, for the purposes of registering the student for concession travel, and to enable the Student SmartRider to be produced. Only students, who provide parent/caregiver permission for the release of these details, will be issued with a card through the College. The information that will be released is student name, photo, date of birth, address and Curriculum Council number.
The PTA must comply with the privacy requirements for the public sector and as such will only be using the information provided by the College for the issuance of the Student SmartRider concession card.
If you wish your child to be issued with a Student SmartRider free of charge through the College, you should tick the student consent and permissions form located within the enrolment form.
If the College does not receive the signed permission slip, your child’s student information will not be released to the PTA and your student will not be issued with a Student SmartRider.
If you do not wish your child to be issued with a SmartRider through this process, but your child still requires a Student SmartRider concession card, then you will need to go to a Transperth Information Office and apply for one. You will need to provide proof that your child is enrolled at a school and pay a card fee of $5.00 for the purchase of the card if you wish to apply for a SmartRider in this way.
LOST, DAMAGED OR STOLEN CARD REPLACEMENT
A student can request a replacement card if theirs is lost, damaged or stolen through the College Administration Office. The PTA charges a $5.00 fee for replacement cards. This fee needs to be paid to the office when ordering a replacement.
