Perth Tram Company tours suspended

The hop-on hop-off tram tours of Kings Park and the City have been suspended until further notice, blaming a struggling tourism sector and not enough bums on seats. The company will instead focus on private tours and charters.

The only alternative Im aware of is the "city sight seeing bus"

I read somewhere the other day where tourism is down ... and yet we have the best and cleanest city in the country ...

Friends on the east coast always ask "when are you coming back" and I tell them, they have to come over and see us first ... we have the best of everything .. and no rain. Altho that's a pity as we do need it... just like we need the tourists.

They are owned by the same company. I have often wondered how they make a living. I see the buses driving past all the time and usually a whopping 3 people in them.

Maybe they could drop their prices a bit then they would get more people even locals might go on them
