East Perth transperth station
The station took the name of the previous East Perth station, which was renamed Claisebrook. The former East Perth railway station was removed on the change of the railway system in the late 1960s.
Interstate terminal: East Perth Railway Terminal
The interstate terminal is the terminus for the Indian Pacific service from Sydney. The terminal was opened in 1969 as the main passenger terminal for the Sydney–Perth standard gauge railway. It is commonly called either East Perth Terminal or East Perth Rail Terminal with the occasional East Perth Train Terminal being used on some websites.
Now known as the Public Transport Centre, it has also been known as the Westrail Centre.
The building above and adjacent to the Railway Terminal platform was originally designed when the railway system was still under the control of the WAGR and was completed during the time when the name became Westrail.
The Westrail Centre was officially opened at the station on 12 November 1976. The public area includes a newsagent, café, help desks, vending machines, seats, televisions, information screens, an ATM and public toilets.
The building was formerly, administrative headquarters for railway operator Westrail, and after the sale of Westrail freight services (and name), Australian Railroad Group were based there for 2 years, from 2000 to 2002. In 2002 ARG relocated to Welshpool, the building is now the base for the Public Transport Authority and Department of Transport.
The building was furnished in its 1970s style decor until 2000 when refurbishment of the upper floors. The TRANSWA bus services to various state destinations also currently depart and arrive at the northern end of this terminal building.
