Easy way to get to Glenelg. Clean tram. Arrives into the centre of Glenelg near the cafes and the beach. Glenelg is beautiful. Glad we took the tram there.

Used this a few times, quick way to get into the city. Not so good when crowded, not enough straps to hold on to, and had to queue for five stops just to pay. One machine on board, only accepts coins., or credit cards with pin. Apparently seniors from interstate can get a complimentary Metro card, but it only seems... More

A unique experience, probably the best way to get to Glenelg beach. Silent and definitely worth travelling at night. The Marina was definitely worth a visit - lots of food choices,

It is clean. Easy to understand, price of transport is pretty high compare to other countries. But I think it is a better option than catching the bus.

Such an easy way to get around !! The tram takes you to Glenelg from the City and Glenelg is a vibrant happening place to go. Within the city the tram is free, making access to attractions very easy. Modern tram cars and very clean.

The Glenelg Tram is a nice and convenient connection between the City and the beach at Glenelg. It runs regularly and gives the opportunity to visit Glenelg. It runs down Glenelg Jetty Road where the tram can be boarded at a number of stops. In the City there are a number of stops as well, ranging from the southern part... More

Tram is the best mode of transport to visit Glenelg beach and the jetty road from the city. The modern trams are comfortable and even has wifi. There is a ticket vending machine in the tram. The best part about the tram is that it is free to ride within the city limit (from entertainment centre to South Terrace). Once... More
