Recently I caught the train from Perth station, to Fremantle - I had forgotten how easy life is when you don;t have to think about parking a car somewhere, or sitting in a traffic jam. My only observation was that in a full carriage, I was the only person not staring at a mobile phone, and reading a book (made of paper!).
Have you used Perth's train system lately, and what do you think of it's services?
I love the Perth train service. It's clean, reliable and efficient. I don't enjoy driving into the city in rush hour, and the train service is so much less hassle. After living in or travelling to a number of cities around the world, I've found Perth to have some of the cleanest train carriages around.
I use the trains quite regularly, and find them great...except at peak times when they're crowded with commuters. As I live quite close to the city, and our local train station is just a ten minute walk from my house, I rarely use our car at all...only at night, as I don't like using public transport then.
