This is a good option to get into city or along jetty road Easy to use with a metro card and it is free to use along jetty road Attendants are friendly too which makes a big difference on public transport

About 50mins from the city to Glenelg, and a lovely ride, then a walk on the beach and an ice cream and back to the Central market

We enjoyed the tram ride. Everything is so easy for strangers who don't know the system. Glenelg was very nice and the shops plentiful. Retailers very friendly and helpful.

Nice quiet and straight to Glenelg. Glenelg has a great beach and very white sands. Local shopping and great eateries

The Glenelg Tram is now modernised & not like the little old one we used to travel on in the 1970's - but we were pleasantly surprised at how modern & sleek it is. We thoroughly enjoyed our ride down to my birth town! Everyone who visits Adelaide should take a trip to Glenelg by tram!

Great to catch the tram from city centre, direct to Glenelg, love it! Dislike the overcrowding, borders on dangerous sometimes when there is 100 people standing up. They could certainly increase services or add more carriages.

One of the best things about Adelaide is the quick, efficient and cheap public transport system. Buy a Metro card ($10) and add another $10 credit, and it will see you to and from the airport by bus, to Gleneig and back by tram, and to Hahndorf and back by bus. Bargain!

This is a great tram, free in the City Centre but you have to pay for 16 stops along the way then the next 3 stops are once again free. I do not know the reason for this but it seems to be through one of othe Suburbs.
