Having spent a few days in Glenelg we used the tram to travel to Adelaide for the next leg of our Australian adventure. The tram terminus was in the town hall square, right near the beach, at Glenelg so a perfect location. The tram was easy to board, even with two large suitcases. It ran to time and was clean,...

The tram ride is very interesting and takes about 30 minutes, if you are a seniors card holder you can travel for free, go to the tourist information centre with your seniors card and they will issue with a ticket to ride free between 9am and 3pm and after 7pm

We caught the tram from the Adelaide Railway Station to Glenelg. The tram was quick and we were able to see more of Adelaide. Had some difficulty in understanding the ticketing system. It could have been just us, clearer signs of how much to pay! Overall a good experience.

Great service bonus free travel for seniors, outside of peak times Some commentary would have been nice, just a brief overview of the city and the history of its landmarks

We had tickets to a show in the city and caught the tram from Plympton - right to the door of the theatre and home again in swift time. So easy.

As Victorian pensioners, we were able to pick up free travel passes which would have lasted us for 14 days. The tram - more like a light rail - whisked us to the Glenelg foreshore quickly and comfortably. A frequent service so we did not have to wait for long at either end.

Whilst on a short visit to Adelaide my wife and I decided to take advantage of the local public transport namely the tram. Even though we had rented a car, it was so much more pleasurable to jump on the tram at the Adelaide Railway Station and travel to the Central Markets as well as to Glenelg which proved to... More

This tram system takes you from Glenelg to Adelaide and return and is a very comfortable and pleasant way to travel and see what Adelaide has to offer in the different suburbs. The price is also well worth the trip.

We live very close to the tramline (stop 10) and we find it a great way to go to places in the CBD, where it is either difficult or expensive to park. If we go to the theatre, parking a car can easily add $15 or so to the cost of a night out. If I use the tram, I... More

My wife and I were staying at Miller Apartments on Hindley St and decided to visit Glenelg by tram. There are a number of ticket options. Day tickets are available at $10, or you can buy a metro card (at convenience stores) for $5 and add credit as required. There are also ticket machines on trams but I'd advise buying... More
