The tram always has a funny smell and the seats are hard. Besides that it's a great alternative public transport, and I love that it's free between the four terraces.

This tram runs from the entertainment centre to Glenelg beach. With the sections of Jetty Road Glenelg, and from South Terrace to the entertainment centre being free of charge. It is mostly clean and timely, running at frequent intervals.

Tram was fine. Pretty frequent, clean, fast etc but the ticketing system was so confusing and we weren't the only ones who were totally lost.

The old trams are better compared to that of new ones. Because there is no stop button placed in between the seats. And thus it makes harder to request to stop when the tram is too full.

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.
