The Western Australian Government Railways Commission was formed on 18 December 2000 to take over the non-freight operations of Westrail, following the freight operations being sold to Australian Western Railroad. It was the owner of the non-metropolitan rail network, that was leased to Australian Western Railroad, and responsible for regional passenger services, The Australind, AvonLink and The Prospector as well as regional coach services.
It ceased on 30 June 2003 with its functions transferred to the Public Transport Authority.
