The history of trams connecting Glenelg to Adelaide is one of convenience and efficiency. The trams are clean, easy to access and reasonable comfortable (public seating has to be easily cleanable and robust but this can leave them hard and stiff to sit in).

this tram is very convenient, it takes you to most of the city at a very low cost, we took the tram from the Rundle Mall all the way to the beach

2 couples traveling to city and didn't want the hassle of parking and fighting with road closures due to footy events. Parked car near entertainment Centre and headed in via tram. Clean, and easy. On way home security noted and friendly. Good to see and I'm sure if I was traveling by myself ( a female) it would make me... More

We stayed at the Mercure which is located opposite a tram stop so it was easy for us to use it. It's free to use at either end of the trip however payment is required outside these areas. Payment process is not well displayed therefore we had difficulty doing this. Tram trip was good.

I love this tram. It is free from the Entertainment Centre into the city, runs every 15 minutes, passes by the Adelaide show grounds on the way to the beach at Glenelg and is a very smooth, comfortable trip

We did the day trip to beach with kids and it was pretty underwhelming but we are from Melbourne and are routinely on tram to st Kilda beach. It's a longish tram trip through suburbs and took awhile to get a seat. The kids were bored... The beach is good and jetty is fine. Lots of Cafes but we didn't... More

The Glenelg tram is quiet efficiency although it lacks the nostalgia the former old tram displayed. (The Glenelg tram is used by thousands of commuters during the week so it was not practical to retain the old tram). Nevertheless, the tram is a easy way to commute from the city to Glenelg and it is recommended. The cost is modest... More
