No traffic congestion and smooth ride to Adelaides iconic beach. Never realised how unique the Bay and the tram service are until an international visitor told me.

Fast, easy, cheap link from Glenelg to the city of Adelaide. You can purchase tickets on board which make it really easy to get it. High frequency.

Easy to catch and most times there will be a tram 10-15 minutes apart so no need to worry about schedules. You can buy tickets on the tram, but in you only use it around the city, its free!

So easy to take this tram in lieu of driving. Glenelg is a must see location on any trip to Adelaide and the tram is a great method of making a return trip.

We used the free tram twice as we were staying in a motel on South Terrace. Very convenient, comfortable and not a long waiting time

found the transport system excellent easy to navigate round Adelaide and suburbs. We didnt have our own transport so relied on the public system. Would recommend

My wife and I took the tram from outside the Intercontinental Hotel on North Terrace, to the beach at Glenelg. Very pleasant 25 minute journey, through nice neighborhoods, at a very reasonable price: remember to buy your tickets prior to boarding. Great way to visit the beach.
