The tram connects the Adelaide Entertainment Center with lovely beachside town Glenelg through Adelaide’s city center in very regular intervals. Service between the center and Glenelg is paid, the rest is free to my knowledge.

Can't remember the cost, but if you're staying in Glenelg and planning to go in and out of the CBD a few times, it's worth getting a plastic card from the Jetty Rd newsagent.
