Perth has earned recognition as Australia’s best metropolitan train system by independent national pollster Canstar Blue. Transperth was given five-star ratings – the highest possible – in the overall satisfaction, service reliability, timetabling, trip comfort, cleanliness and ticketing system categories.
Transperth has taken the top slot 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 sixth time in succession.
“This recognition demonstrates our world-class public transport system, which is only going to improve as our network expands with the METRONET projects,” Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said.
Adelaide Metro came in second, with one five-star rating and seven four-star ratings.
The 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.
