Light rail is undergoing a resurgence worldwide in response to rising fuel costs, environmental concerns and traffic congestion, with a role which falls between that of buses and heavy rail for carrying capacity.
The Metro Area Express, or MAX, is the proposed new light rail system set to power Perth’s public transport into the future.
This visionary project introduces a new era of public transport in Perth, supporting the city’s transformation by providing a frequent, high-capacity service in the inner-north and central west and eastern suburbs of Perth.
With a $15.8 million commitment over the next two years, which includes $4 million of Federal Government funding, MAX is part of the State Government’s investment toward building a better Perth for future generations to come.
