Ridesharing as a compliment for Adelaide Transportation System

Adelaide is a metropolitan city with an advanced public transportation system. So, if you visit this city, you don’t have to spend money to rent expensive cars because you can easily commute with public transportation in Adelaide.

Adelaide Metro, the city’s main transportation system, has various public transport services, such as trains, buses and trams. If you want to travel with either one of those public transportations, you have to check the timetables on Adelaide Metro’s website first.

If you stay less than three days in this city, you can purchase MetroCard Visitor Pass to pay the transportation fares. The card can be used as a payment method for every means of transportation under Adelaide Metro’s control.

But if you plan to stay for more than three days, it is better to purchase the MetroCard because the price is much cheaper. If you use the bus, besides using Metrocard, you also can purchase the MetroTickets directly from the bus driver.

If you want to get the real Adelaide experience, make sure to take the tram at least once. The tram runs from Glenelg, passing the beautiful Glenelg beach, to Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

A free tram is even available from Adelaide Entertainment Centre to South Terrace and Brighton Road & Moseley Square to Glenelg. If the tram doesn’t reach your destination, then you can take buses or trains instead.

If you miss the trams, buses or trains, don’t worry because public transportation in Adelaide is not only limited to those three. You will not be stranded without a way home in Adelaide. There are many taxis in Adelaide and you can hail them anytime, especially if you are currently in the busiest parts of the city.

In Friday and Saturday night, a supervised place to wait for a taxi is even provided. While it is easy to hail a taxi in this city, you might want to consider to book the taxi beforehand if you need to arrive on time.
