  • Transperth rated Australia’s best metropolitan rail system by Canstar Blue
  • Independent survey found Perth’s rail customers are the most satisfied for 6th consecutive year
  • Transperth given the maximum 5-star rating in 6 of the 8 categories, with 4 stars in the other 2

Perth has again been ranked as having Australia’s best metropolitan train system by independent national pollster Canstar Blue.

“It is great to be recognised on the national stage by a well-respected organisation like Canstar.” Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said.

“This recognition demonstrates our world-class public transport system, which is only going to improve as our network expands with the METRONET projects.”

Transperth has taken out the top gong in the City Trains category which pits the Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth urban rail networks against one another to find who has the most satisfied customers for the 6th time in succession.

Transperth was given 5-star ratings the highest possible in:

  • Cleanliness,
  • Overall satisfaction,
  • Service reliability,
  • Ticketing system categories,
  • Timetabling,
  • Trip comfort.

Adelaide Metro came in second, with one 5-star rating and seven 4-star ratings.

Win coincides with the launch of the $1.25 Million Transperth patronage campaign, aimed at attracting more people to the public transport network by encouraging motorists to take a break from driving, by taking a Transperth bus or train.
