Passenger Train and Tram Operators

Most regular passenger trains in Australia are operated by government-owned organisations. A notable exception is Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions, which operates three interstate passenger trains. The vast majority of passenger train services in Australia run on suburban and interurban railway lines in the five mainland capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Trams and light rail services currently operate in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and the Gold Coast. The tram and light rail services in Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast are operated by private companies, while tram services in Adelaide are government-operated.
