Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
There are concerns a lack of counter-terrorism training for train guards could make Perth's public transport system an easy target for attacks. The Rail, Tram and Bus Union has rejected Government claims train guards are trained to detect terror threats.
Union Secretary Bob Christison says guards are trained in customer service and protection but not to find bombs or deter hijackings.
Mr Christison says recent events in Madrid show how vulnerable public transport systems are to terrorism.
He says terrorists could see Perth as a potential target.
"They would certainly pick off the easiest mark and the easiest mark at this point in time is urban rail patronage, whether it be in Perth or any other national city in Australia," Mr Christison said.
