A couple who were caught having sex on a packed train have appeared in court.

Joseph Paul Darcy, 43, and Tracy Hope Hartley, 36, were busted having oral sex and intercourse in the carriage of a train bound for Mandurah, south of Perth, at 8pm on May 9.

When approached by transit officers at Mandurah train station following their public romp, Darcy told them: 'I had to do it.'

Public Transport Authority prosecutor Garry Gillam told Mandurah Magistrate's Court the pair engaged in 'fellatio' and 'sexual intercourse'.

The court heard Darcy became 'aggressive' when confronted by the officers and threatened to 'knock you two out,' the Mundurah Mail reported.  

Magistrate Vivien Edwards told the couple 'the facts of this matter are disgusting to say the least'. 

Hartley was fined $1,800 and ordered to pay $225 in court costs, while Ms Edwards labelled Darcy's aggression to the guards 'disgusting'.

Darcy will need to reappear in court for sentencing because he was subject to a suspended imprisonment order at the time of the incident.

He has been remanded to appear in court again on August 14.

Outside the court, Darcy told the media 'the accusations are hearsay, the injured parties were myself and Tracy'. 

Shadow transport minister Libby Mettam said 'reports such as this are deeply concerning'. 

'The McGowan Government needs to do more to prevent this behaviour and protect the workers who are simply doing their job and providing a valuable service,' she said.

'Up until COVID we had seen a 71 per cent increase in incidents over the period 2016-17 to 2018-19 while patronage over the same period has only increased by 0.4 per cent in total boardings or 2 per cent for trains alone.'
