Perth suburban trains on six lines radiating from the downtown Perth station are operated under the brand-name Transperth.
The network is fully electrified, and trains are fast, comfortable, clean, safe, inexpensive and frequent. Just about everything you could want in a rail network. Extensions to Perth Airport, Morley, Yanchep, Byford and Thornlie to Cockburn are under construction.
