Getting around in Perth is easiest by car. All major hire companies are here.
Trains operate to the north, south and east of the city but are limited in their reach and timetable at night.
Buses are regular and reliable, except late at night, and take up where the trains finish. Free CAT buses operate throughout the extended CBD.
Perth is blessed with the finest sealed cycle-ways in the country, which are mostly off the roads. You can cycle around the Swan River near the city, all the way to beaches and along the coast.
