Comfortable and quiet ride, with many stops, to Glenelg (end of line) from central Adelaide, where we boarded.

Took the tram from North Terrace out to Glenelg. A lovely way to travel. The Tram is free, out to a certain point, then you will need to 'tap on' with your metro card or pay. The end of the line is Glenelg beach so...More

We enjoyed a winters morning in Glenelg walking on the beach and pier and around the marina. The tram is a very economical way to get to Glenelg

Beautiful, easy to hop on and off. Comfortable and very modern. Avoid peak hours as it is standing room only as business commuters go to and from the city. Other times are great. Tram runs regularly and on time. Glenelg is a nice seaside suburb,...More

We love hopping on the tram, & heading for Glenelg, to have a walk on the beach, or have a meal on Jetty Road. Quick. Clean & readily available, always dependable!

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.

You buy tickets on tram. We caught tram from the city to Glenelg which it takes you virtually to the beach. I suggest you go to the information centre which is in James Place off Rundle Mall. Enjoy your cruise.

There is one marked as "shuttle" which runs free through the city. Also local seniors can apply for a free metro travel card which allows them to travel free during certain restricted hours. Otherwise a metro card is needed... More
