Welcome to Adelaide!

Here are some useful public transport hints and tips for getting around Adelaide using Adelaide Metro trains, trams and buses.

Visiting the city centre

A dedicated Cruise Ship passenger shuttle runs express between Outer Harbor and Adelaide to cater for the specific demand of Cruise Ship passengers.

Purchase your special Cruise Ship metroCARD at the Outer Harbor Railway Station and get around Adelaide all day for just $10!

FREE City Connector – explore Adelaide by bus

Two free City Connector bus services operate around Adelaide and North Adelaide, linking you to popular attractions, shopping, dining and destinations.

The 98A and 98C connect North Adelaide and the city seven days a week, while the 99A and 99C connect the inner city on weekdays. Together the two loops provide a 15 minute service Monday to Friday. Visit the City Connector webpage for information.

Visiting Port Adelaide

If you are a bit pressed for time, Port Adelaide is a hive of maritime and rail history. The Outer Harbor train service will get you there in around 20 minutes from the Outer Harbor train station across from the Cruise Ship Terminal. 

Find information on attractions and things to do on the Port Adelaide Enfield Council’s website.
