Late Night Home Zone

Adelaide Metro and the City of Adelaide are excited to introduce the new Home Zone in the city, a dedicated late night bus stop and ride collection zone at locations in Currie and King William Street.

After Midnight late night buses and a dedicated ride collection point every Saturday night.


When you're heading home after a Saturday night in the city, head to the Home Zone.

What is the Home Zone?

The Home Zone is a central city location offering four key After Midnight late night bus stops plus a dedicated ride collection point where you can wait together for transport home late on a Saturday night.

This active zone offers CCTV, good lighting and Police patrols to keep you safer until your night bus or ride home arrives.

The Home Zone operates on King William and Currie Streets from 12am to 6am every Saturday night and provides a safer place to wait for your transport home.

After Midnight buses are special Adelaide Metro buses that operate between 12am and 5am every Saturday night from the city to various locations around metropolitan Adelaide.

After Midnight buses depart from four key bus stops in the Home Zone (PDF 450kb), depending on where you want to travel, with other city bus stops (PDF 268kb) also available for After Midnight buses.

After Midnight buses run to the north, south, east and west of Adelaide and can drop you off at brightly lit locations such as 24 hour service stations and fast food outlets.
