There’s an exciting new way to travel between Kings Park and Subiaco with the arrival of Ruby the Tram from The Subiaco Tram group!

The free tram service 'Ruby', offers a novel way of travelling from Subiaco to Kings Park. Photo: D. Blumer.Originally manufactured more 25 years ago as a replica of the quaint 1899 tram that carried residents along Hay Street to the central business district of Perth, Ruby has been brought back to life with the help of local Subiaco businesses and volunteers.

The free service offers a novel way of travelling from Subiaco to Kings Park, with the tram departing Subiaco Train Station every hour on the hour between 9.00am and 4.00pm Tuesdays to Saturdays. You can also hop-on or hop-off Ruby anywhere along Rokeby Road in Subiaco and Kings Park Road. Ruby has a dedicated tram pick up and drop off point in Kings Park at the Old Tea Pavilion just off Fraser Avenue.
