The State Opposition has promised to trial free WiFi on trains if it wins the next election.

The Opposition leader, Mark McGowan, says a Labor government would spend $1-million installing wireless internet on 10 trains in the hope of eventually rolling it out across the network.

He says the move would help to encourage people to use public transport and ease Perth's congestion problems.

"One of the great ways of getting people out of their cars and onto trains is to make it attractive and interesting, and WiFi will do that," he said.

"We live in an electronic age, we want to make sure that Western Australia is connected."
