Public transport

Public transport options

Adelaide has an affordable and efficient public transport system with trains, trams and buses to major shopping centres north, south and west of the city.

  • Adelaide Metro is the transport system servicing the greater metropolitan region and can help you plan your trip.

  • The Adelaide Connector bus service is a convenient link between major facilities such as universities, schools and shopping centres within North Adelaide and Adelaide city centre.

  • The famed Glenelg tramline extends from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Port Road, Hindmarsh, via the city centre, all the way through to Glenelg beach. Two zones offer free travel – the city centre zone and the Jetty Road Glenelg zone. Outside of this zone, you'll need to purchase a ticket.

  • The Adelaide Metro Visitor Pass is a must-have if travelling around the city often. The pass includes unlimited travel for three consecutive days as well as a visitor pack with maps and travel guides.
