Transit Officers are the first responders to a vast majority of incidents on the urban rail network. They have a professional demeanour and remain calm when faced with challenging situations. Transit Officers provide quality customer service to our passengers and play a vital role in ensuring the safety and security of everyone on our network.
Being a Transit Officer is an often-demanding but ultimately rewarding role that has fantastic pay and conditions. You’ll be part of a large team of law enforcement professionals working across the Perth metropolitan rail network accommodating 40+ million rail boardings per year.
