Getting Around Adelaide

Public transport

Adelaide Metro is the city's transport system. It services the greater metropolitan area with trains, buses and trams. Visit the Adelaide Metro website for details of routes and fares. A Metroticket can help you travel on most transport systems. You can also purchase a Metrocard, which is easy to use and is rechargeable.
You can find information about the Metroticket, available in several languages, or Metrocard, on the Adelaide Metro website.


Seeing the city sights by foot is always a holiday highlight. The flat streets make Adelaide an easy walking city. The visitor friendly street layout means the only decision to make is which route to take.
Besides walking, there are several other ways to get around the city centre that won’t cost you any money.

Adelaide the cycling city

Adelaide has a network of dedicated bike lanes and paths. Look out for the three Adelaide City Bikes’ depots around the city. Hire is free. They’ll even give you a helmet and bike lock.
Get around the city on the free City-Loop bus (99C), which runs frequently until about 6pm, on Fridays until about 9pm. This bus service operates seven days a week.


The famed Glenelg tramline extends from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Port Road, Hindmarsh, via the city centre and all the way through to beachside Glenelg. Travel free within the city centre (anywhere between North Terrace and the South Terrace stop). Outside of this zone, you'll need to purchase a ticket. You can find all route and timetable information on the Adelaide Metro website.


All taxis in Adelaide accept major credit cards and Cab charge. There are several companies that offer an alternative to taxis, providing luxury vehicles and uniformed drivers for transfers and touring.
