This is a convenient way to travel between Adelaide city & Glenelg (beach). The service is very regular and delivers you from the City to the beach in air-conditioned comfort. The services costs, with peak & off-peak times, which you can pay cash on board to purchase a ticket or pre-purchase a travel card which you need to "swipe" when... More

A unique way to see some of the suburbs of Adelaide. A leisurely way to travel to a very nice part o of the area. Easy access on & off and inexpensive if you get the concession tickets from the Tourist Information Office.

If your in the city, and feel like the beach, jump on the tram as it will whisk you there in no time. Also, it's an easy way to travel from one side of the city to the other, for free. Tram travel between North Trc and South Trc is free. Nothing wrong with free travel

Glenelg is an excellent means of transport for both residents and tourists alike. Travelling at regular intervals from Moseley Square, Glenelg and stopping at several stops through the centre of Adelaide city, it terminates near the Adelaide Entertainment Centre before heading back through the city to Glenelg. Seniors card holders travel free of charge from 9.01a.m. and 3pm and again... More

Glenelg is right on the waterfront and is a delight to visit. The best way is by the frequent tram that runs through the centre of Adelaide and follows the original railway line. The tram stops 100 metres from the water. It's cheap and over 60's can often travel for free.

Catching a tram from any stop is easier and cheaper than parking in the city. The city centre is free so you can jump on and off in the city, it enables you to go all the way to the Entertainment Centre without worrying about car parks. Comfortable seating with a birds eye view of the suburbs, quiet and clean.
