Not the most comfy ride but the destination is worth it. Pretty punctual but rarely get a seat and if you do they are uncomfortable. Bad purchase choice by the Govt.

I took the tram from downtown Adelaide to Glenelg. The trip was enjoyable although the tram shook quite often left right. It was memorable

Great views Glenelg beach and only 15-20 mins into City centre Adelaide, a well planned city with beautiful parks

Adelaide trams used to be great traditional style. New modern trams are great for getting from a to b but that's it..

We are staying in Glenelg for 2 weeks, so take the tram into the city almost daily. It is convenient, predictable and, with a Metro pass, a good price. It also has free internet, which is helpful for planning your trip. I'd much prefer the tram to a bus! Plus, Glenelg is a delightful place to go.

Went on a cold winter's day, but a lovely outing. Tram trip fun and cheap, as only have to pay half from the city. Carriages were clean & seats comfortable.

The tram journey from the city of Adelaide to the seaside suburb of Glenelg is a pleasant way to pass some time. The carriage was clean, comfortable and quiet, but could become crowded at peak times.. The scenery en route was standard urban but Glenelg itself has some charm, even in the winter. There was a special offer of free... More

Have traveled on it half a dozen times now, and find it fun. It used to be difficult to pay at one time in the past, but in recent times it has become much more straightforward and easier. The only bad point is that it becomes very crowded at some times in the day.

Took the tram to Glenelg. The ride through suburbia was a bit hohum. Glenelg was quite pretty but strangly set out with not much close to the water.
