The Adelaide Metro 3 Day Unlimited Visitors Pass is the best way to get around the city. It gives you unlimited travel on all buses trains and trams. At $26 it is the best value for money when compared with Taxi’s, car hire, or paying the regular train fare.
The transport network has the city covered; it also stretches to the very outer suburbs, as far as Gawler, Aldinga Beach, Mt Lofty, Hahndorf and beyond.
Don’t turn up expecting to buy the Visitors Pass from any train station or ticket booth, they are only available from the transport office at Central Station and WHSmith Express in the arrivals area at Adelaide’s main airport. They are also available from a few other locations around Adelaide. If you arrive at Parrafield you would need to catch the train to Adelaide City to buy a pass.
- Folding bikes are allowed on buses, trains, and trams. If you take them on the tram they might ask you to enclose it in a bag We didn’t have our bikes in a bag and it didn’t cause us any problems with traveling on trams.
- The 3 days pass does not necessarily equal 72 hours. For example, we arrived Thursday evening, got our tickets and took 1 train on Thursday evening. We were departing first thing Sunday morning, which was only 63 hours later, but because we took the train on Thursday evening it deducted a full day off our pass, so on Sunday morning we had to buy another ticket to get back to the airport.
- You can re-charge your card with regular metroCARD fare credit if you are in Adelaide for more than 3 days.
