Protecting public transport customers

Due to COVID-19, patronage levels will be assessed as the AFL season progresses, with additional standby services dispatched to cater for increased loadings.

Every effort will be made to provide additional capacity on bus, train and tram services and we ask customers to be patient and maintain physical distancing as much as possible.

Customers will also need to exercise judgement as to how they travel and act in accordance with health advice; practice hygiene measures, cough into tissues or the crook of your arm and use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser and wash your hands.

If you are feeling unwell, please avoid travelling on public transport at all times.

For more information visit Adelaide Metro's
COVID-19 public transport information page.

 

Please remember, while at the footy masks are not required while in your seat, but you must wear a mask when entering, exiting and moving around the stadium.
