Transport minister Rita Saffioti said as COVID-19 restrictions ease, Western Australians can again enjoy activities in the CBD.

"As our nightclubs and live music venues begin to re-open, it's important we head back into the CBD and support our small businesses - reintroducing our free late night train services will give patrons a safe and hassle-free way to get home," she said.
