The tram is an efficient way to get around Adelaide. Because there is only one tram line with a tram every 15 minutes it's a stress free way to get from the beach to the city. You can always hop on knowing that you'll reach your destination. Search for metro card outlets to find cheaper ways to travel if you're... More

We used the Glenelg team for three return trips while staying in Adelaide. A direct route from city to beach in airconditioning. Tickets can be purchased inside the team from a machine that is completely fickle about whether it will accept a credit card, notes, or coins. The trip takes in some suburbia and CBD sites. Don't bother thinking you... More

Typical Aussie trams, generally easy to use, efficient, timely and comfortable, reasonably priced. We had inspectors come through and check tickets on our one and only journey. We couldn't at first get tickets from the machine on the tram and the inspectors were helpful with this as the machine would not work and there were vast numbers on the tram... More

Enjoyed the tram ride from North Terrace to Glenelg. There are many nice eating spots and Cafes once you get there and the Jetty / beach is definitely worth the ride.

The tram trip from Adelaide station to Glenelg was quick and easy. The only complaint I have is that the airconditioning in the tram is run at a very low temperature so bring a coat on a warm day!!!!

Took the tram from Glenelg to Adelaide CBD on Sunday night. $3.20, safe and easy. Buy your ticket on board via a machine (coins or credit). Security on board too. Think the price varies depending when you travel.

Loved our tram ride, down to Glenelg Beach. Such a relaxed and pleasant way to travel. Roomy and a very smooth trip.

A good way to get to Glenelg from Adelaide, however there should be an express service from key stations, every second trip. There are many stops along the way, stop, start, stop start. Information needed for travellers about the free zones in Adelaide and Glenelg, otherwise you wouldnt know unless you live here.

The tram to Glenelg is an Adelaide icon. Love it. Memories of hot summer days with my grandparents going to the beach. Hasn't changed. Great way to get around. If state government were smart, they would put a tram from the city to Port Adelaide. Fabulous old building and pubs. Do them up and have some outdoor seating and cafes... More
