Adelaide Metro buses, trains and trams
Adelaide has an extensive public transport system of buses, trains and trams. Passengers can purchase single trip or day trip tickets or Metrocards, which 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, 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. See Getting around with a disability

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.
The main feature of the O-Bahn is its speed - it is able to travel from the edge of the CBD to Tea Tree Plaza Interchange in around 20 minutes, a journey that can take twice as long by bus on normal suburban roads.
Adelaide airport is eight kilometres from the centre of the city and is easily accessed by car, bus and taxi.
