An Adelaide Metro Tram heading towards the South of the City

Adelaide Metro

Adelaide Metro is Adelaide’s public transport system with an extensive array of services that include buses, trains and trams throughout the city and the greater metropolitan area.

Bus, tram and train timetables, fares and service information can be found on the Adelaide Metro website.

Real-time information

Waiting for your bus, train or tram? You can find out arrival times and route information by accessing Real-Time information on the Adelaide Metro website.


To travel on the public transport system you can pay your fare using either a Metrocard or Metroticket. If you use public transport frequently or are staying in Adelaide for a week or more the Metrocard is not only more convenient but gives you access to cheaper fares.

Metrocards need to be purchased prior to travelling and are sold at Adelaide Metro Information Centres and participating outlets. There is a one-off cost of $5 to purchase a Metrocard.

Metrocard Visitor Pass

The Metrocard Visitor Pass is available to tourists and provides unlimited travel on all Adelaide Metro buses, trains and trams for three consecutive days from the day the Metrocard is first used.

The pass costs $25 and includes maps with information on using Adelaide’s public transport system, how to travel to some of the most popular attractions, and places to visit in the Adelaide metropolitan area. At the end of the three days the Metrocard Visitor Pass can be recharged and used as a standard Metrocard.

The Metrocard Visitor Pass is available from Adelaide Metro Information Centres and participating outlets. Visit the Adelaide Metro website for more details.


Metrotickets are paper tickets that can be purchased on-board buses (from the bus driver), trains or trams (from ticket vending machines).
