I'm planning on riding from Perth to Mandurah tommorow afternoon - leaving the CBD around 3pm - so in Mandurah around 5pm - I'm then planning on taking the train back up to Cockburn.
My question is.. will my bike be allowed on the train ?
The Transperth website suggests it will, as although it is peak time, I am against the flow, and not going to the main Perth stations - however a friend of mine was given some grief yesterday trying to do a similar thing.. maybe just a jobsworth Transperth employee.. but don't want to be caught out.

I regularly catch the train with my bike and the only time I had trouble is in the City a couple of years ago with guard who believed I had to wait till 6:30pm to use the station, I said no, walked pass him (it was 6:25pm) and made my way to the platform to catch the 6:35pm to Mandurah. Now I walk in at 6:25pm sometimes they ask which train, I say 6:35 to Mandurah and never an issue.
If you are worried printed off the website page or relevant regulations http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/wa/consol_reg/ptar2003447/s33a.html and hand that to the transperth employee, but as I have said never had an issue in the last few years so do not worry.

That said, I sometimes get trains in after 6 and ride on from there, most are happy if you say you are leaving, only had one get snotty about it.
