Adelaide Metro buses, trains and trams
Adelaide Metro is Adelaide's public transport system, comprising buses, trains and trams. Passengers can purchase single trip or day trip tickets or Metrocards, which can store credit for use on multiple journeys.
Many buses and all trams reserve space for wheelchair passengers. Foldout seats in the wheelchair access area can be used by all passengers, but should be vacated if a wheelchair passenger boards the bus.
Trains are equipped with ramps at the front-most entrance to enable wheelchair passengers to board.
As a courtesy, passengers should offer their seat to elderly, pregnant, or any passenger who looks like they could use a seat.
Real-time passenger information
Real-time arrival information for buses, trains and trams, timetables and a journey planner are available online through the Adelaide Metro website or the metroMATE smartphone app. Adelaide public transport information is also integrated into Google Maps.
Printed timetables are available from Adelaide Railway Station, the Adelaide Metro Info Centre, and some shopping centres.
Free city trams and circle buses
Adelaide Metro offers some free public transport services within the city centre.
Cycle and ride
Bikes are allowed free on trains after 9.00 am until 3.00 pm.
Park and ride
At Park 'n' Ride car parks you can leave your car and transfer to an Adelaide Metro public transport service to complete the journey.
The Adelaide O-Bahn is a guided busway that allows specially fitted transit buses to travel at high speed between stops. These buses can exit the O-Bahn track and operate as regular road services.
The Adelaide O-Bahn begins just north of the city in the parkland suburb of Gilberton and runs 12 kilometres to an interchange at Tea Tree Gully. Beyond this point, buses continue on suburban road routes.
Adelaide airport is eight kilometres from the centre of the city and is easily accessed by car, bus and taxi.
The Adelaide Metro JetBus travels between Adelaide airport and the City. There are other services to Glenelg, West Lakes Centre, and Marion Centre Interchanges.
You will need a standard Metroticket or metroCARD to board the bus.
