Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test Series – a guide to Adelaide Oval

The Adelaide Oval App incorporates a host of information to make a day out at Adelaide Oval easy, with information on how to get there, where to park or catch a taxi, help finding your seat, details on where your nearest food and beverage outlet is located and more. The App will be available from the Apple Store or Google Play in the lead up to the Test. Alternatively visit Adelaide Oval for information.

Public transport

With the new Riverbank Bridge – and its connections to the Adelaide Railway Station, the tramline and a range of bus routes – catching public transport to the Adelaide Oval will be easier than ever.

  • The Noarlunga rail line will resume from Sunday 1 December 2013 and will operate throughout the Test. Note: the services don’t run after approximately 8pm. Please check the new temporary timetable online via Adelaide Metro for details.
  • In addition to all regular train and bus services, additional trains will run on Saturday and Sunday while additional buses will be on standby for the duration of the Test. A full fleet of trams will operate, providing on average a 10 minute service along the line between Glenelg and the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
  • The Riverbank Bridge will be open from 7am to 7pm for the duration of the Adelaide Ashes Test.
