Train services run on four lines that spread over the Perth metropolitan area. The lines are named Joondalup, Midland, Fremantle and Armadale. The new Mandurah line will be open late in 2007. All trains are operated using electricity.
Ferry services operate across the Swan River between the Perth CBD and South Perth. The ferry is popular for people to go to the zoo located in South Perth.
Passengers can take rides by buying cash tickets or using the ticket system known as SmartRider.
