City West is a Transperth railway station 1.6 kilometres (0.99 mi) from Perth railway station in Perth, Western Australia, on the Fremantle Line. The station was opened on 18 June 1986 as West Perth. Its name was changed to City West on 19 November 1987. It serves the City West commercial complex, including Scitech, and the West Perth business district. It replaced the original West Perth Station that served the Perth Metropolitan Markets, which was further to the east on the other side of the West Perth Subway (see commemorative plaques).
