Always check top of tram for the destinations- great for Art Gallery and Rundle Mall, but still quite a walk from stops. Nth Tce very busy foot and road traffic.

Easy way to access city from Plympton

Well priced off peak even when paying cash for a few trips to city. Vending machine was easy to follow. Enjoyed using the tram & viewing suburbs.

No-one should miss the Glenelg Tram
May 2021
When I was visitnf Adelaide from Perth, our hosts took us to Glenelg. We were to return, we were to take the Glenelg tram. I almost missed the tram, but our hosts said "it's only half a mile, you can walk," to great hilarity. Actually, it's around 12 miles -- I just managed to catch the tram. Glenelg is a seaside suburb of Adelaide, the tram is the city's one and only tram.

Seniors tram trip
May 2021
As a Melbournian I am not unused to trams but I suppose, because of that, I like travelling on them in other cities. It is about half an hour from the city to Glenelg and service is quite frequent. It can be free off-peak or on weekends for seniors and reduced fare at other times. The Visitor Centre in Glenelg just near the final tram stop is an easy place to pick up the 7 day temporary free seniors card for tourists which I used for the tram and also for trains and buses in Adelaide.

Best way to visit Glenelg
May 2021
A good way to visit Glenelg from centre of Adelaide. The trams run frequently - there and back - trip takes about half an hour, and there are recorded messages which mention each stop along the way. Interstate visitors - we travelled on a Sunday and were surprised to find that it is sometimes free for seniors.

Tram is a must. Queensland should have one.

A tram is a railcar that runs on tramway tracks public urban streets; some include segments of segregated right-of-way. The lines or networks operated by tramcars as public transport are called tramways or simply tram/streetcar.

30 minute enjoyable trip from the City to Glenelg and free for seniors at certain times.
May 2021
We had visited Adelaide many times but had never travelled to Glenelg. On this occasion we had a free Sunday morning so decided to take the tram and enjoyed the journey which only took about 30 minutes one way from Victoria Square to Glenelg.

Tram was very clean and comfortable and, as it turned out free on Sundays for seniors even if you are from interstate. It is also free in certain off peak times during the week.

We obtained our free passes at the Central Railway Station in a matter of a couple of minutes.

Easy and efficient
May 2021
The Glenelg Tram is an easy and efficient way of travelling between the city and Glenelg. Transport is free within the city and within Glenelg, and payable by ticket in between. It is possible to purchase tickets within the tram. Access is easy with many side doors. the stations along the way are well sign-posted and maintained. The service is frequent. I would give this 5* except that the seats are uncomfortable – certainly less comfortable than the metro bus seats.
