During my friend’s visit we didn’t use the free connector bus and tram in the city as much as we did before. She bought a visitor pass to go to visit the places outside the city.

Modern buses that come frequently(15 min) in each direction and announce the stops and what is nearby. Great way to get around Adelaide central. Thanks Adelaide for the great public transport.

This simple and free tram transport system is so convenient for all of Adelaide’s CBD attractions including restaurants and bars. I think it is brilliant and other cities should consider supplying the same.

We found this service very helpful to get an over all idea of the city area and decide which attractions we wanted to revisit. Great when time is limited.

Sorry, I know that the Adelaide trams are wheelchair accessible, but I haven't been on the Melbourne tram for several years. However, I'm sure that our sensitive Aussie cousins will have made provision for this need.
