A Transperth Train

Transperth is the brand of the public transport system in Perth, Western Australia. Transperth is launched in 1986. It supplies public bus, train and ferry services.

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.

Bus services run throughout the metropolitan area. A circular bus route is the CircleRoute which links major shopping centres, universities and railway stations.

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.
