What a great way of getting around lovely Adelaide. The trams are clean, on time and once you get into the central city they are free. On our first trip leaving Glenelg we had a frew questions about ticket buying and the attendant there was very friendly and helpful.

So convienient, on. Time and clean service. Providing free travel within the city limits and a small fare to Glenelg. This is an opportunity to see what is going on around you, no parking hassles.

This is an efficient and cost effective way to get through the city centre and out to various suburbs and Glenelg. The tram itself is nothing special, but it runs every 10 minutes, provides lots of information and is reasonably priced. It's a good way to get around,

City to Beach good trip. Paying fare a nightmare - CANNOT use paper cash - must be coin, or Credt Card - still waiting for NZ CC statement. There were five of us newly arrived from NZ. Surprised teenagers didn't offer their seats to senior citizens. Return journey after dinner was better. Tram service great in city.

Other than locals using it for transport, this is a cheap fun great experience for families, tourists seeing Adeliade and beach goers. It is relaxing, easy to do and a hassle free few hours to do a round trip to get an ice cream at Glenelg or visit the City.

Don't be too put off by the fact that the fares are difficult to work out, it's a nice little ride to Glenelg and it's always good to be at the seaside as a change from the city, when you are a visitor. I think we paid about $1.90 for our fares and had a laugh trying to figure out... More

If you plan on a trip to Glenelg, the only way to go is by tram! Journey only takes about 30 minutes fro city and lands you right at the town centre/Jetty. They run frequently so no need for timetables.

Let say about 10 or 15 minutes you can wait for the tram. The tram will take you from Glenelg beach to the city (Entertainment centre). And prepare your metro card for your ticket.

Great that the trams still run and so cheap. Can be slow and crowded, but, hey, its all part of the experience.
