Good mode of transport and the beach is amazing

The team is easy accessible and goes every 15 mins from the city center. It's a nice and easy way to get to the beach and the beach is also definitely worth visiting!

I have visited Adelaide and Glenelg many times over the years. We again caught the tram out to Glenelg for a bit of lunch and then had a look around the shops, a walk along the beach and then caught the tram back into town. What a great way to travel, so easy, no looking for parking etc. Would recommend... More

We got onto the tram in central Adelaide and were whisked down to Glenelg quite quickly. A very smooth trip and relatively cheap. Glenelg was a cool little place right on the coast wind was a bit cool for us Queenslanders but would definitely visit again

Only used the tram once to get to Glenelg Beach and back. Tickets available to be purchased on the tram itself or by prepaid travel card. Such a great way to get about the city especially with the free stops available.

The tram is free around Adelaide CBD and it made going to the Fringe events easy. We never had to wait long and will travel that way again.

Caught the modern tram down to the Bay for the first time since they had been upgraded (probably many years now). I remember the rattles and shakes, and heat and wind of the old ones well, but the new ones offer a trip in complete comfort. And a good drive from the driver who slowed at intersections rather than braking... More

What else do you do on a hot summer's afternoon in Adelaide but take the tram to the Glenelg beach. The tram ride was very smooth and efficient having it's own section of road for much of the route. The trams were clean, comfortable and air conditioned. It took about 30 minutes to get from the centre of the city... More

Having a few hours to fill in on a Sunday, we decided to take a little tour down to Glenelg on the tram. It was so easy to catch the tram ( every fifteen minutes on a Sunday) and a very pleasant journey made even better by the fact that it is free for Seniors on a Sunday. A lovely... More

Great for seniors if your traveling in and out of the city. However if you are a tourist traveling on the tram and trying to buy a ticket it's an absolute nightmare, the ticket machine only accepts credit cards no cash and very hard to use. We watched a group of 4 couples of tourists trying to buy tickets and... More

got on the tram near our hotel then travelled all the way to Glenelg. Once we were there we found lots of shops, restaurants and bars as well as a lovely beach to swim in. We did some shopping, swimming and had a nice lunch, before getting on a tram to return to our hotel. The trams run every 15... More
