The jetty road and Adelaide CBD sections of the tram route is free. We used the tram to whip into the city do shopping and back. It was on time and fast definitely the way to go if staying at Glenelg or along the tram route.

You can buy an all day ticket on the tram and take a nice, pleasant ride to Glenelg beach. It is fast and easy. The tram is free within city centre.

It's quick and efficient to get from Glenelg to city on the tram ....cheap travel too if you have a SA Seniors card. We parked at Glengowrie stop...alighted at Rundle Mall and took tram back from the Casino. Except maybe at peak times, there are usually seats and they have free wifi. No point in taking the car to the... More

Travelled from Adelaide Hilton to Glenelg, a wonderful way to get to the beach - tram clean and not overcrowded, you can just sit back and check out the scenery. Only takes about 20 minutes Wonderful Service

Smooth quick trip on the tram. No need to get a tour - easy to catch a tram. Buy an all day ticket so there is no rush to get back. Nice spots to wander and eat. It was bad weather the day we went but still a good visit

The Glenelg Tram is a 15-kilometre (9.3 mi) light rail line in South Australia running from Hindmarsh, through the Adelaide city centre, to the beach-side suburb of Glenelg. It is Adelaide's only remaining tramway. There is a free loop bus that you can get on and off as much as you like and it takes you past most of the... More

What a fun way to get from the Adelaide cbd to the beach...... Even if the trams are modern it saves on parking etc and very regular services and you get to see part of Adelaide on the way.

We took the tram from Adelaide CBD to Glenelg Beach - it took about 45 minutes and was comfortably air conditioned. If you go to the races at Morphetville, the tram drops you right at the racecourse.

This is a modern tram that runs from the Adelaide CBD to Glenelg. It's about a 40 minute trip passing through the suburbs of Adelaide. I'm not sure how this qualifies as an attraction, as they also have busses and trains.

The tram offers easy access to the beach at a very reasonable price. A cash price (for an Adult) is only $3.30 (off peak). There are no parking hassles when you go to the beach and it delivers you right to the heart of the beach..
