New trams are now operating

Major works for the City Tram Extension are complete and new passenger tram services are now operating daily to the East End of North Terrace and on weekends and Adelaide Oval event days to the Festival Plaza precinct. 

Watch our video for travel tips across the extended tram network.

Do you know your tram's destination?

With the tram line extension travelling along North Terrace to the East End and down King William Road to Festival Plaza, trams now travel to more destinations.

Not every tram will service every stop and you'll sometimes have to swap trams to get where you want to go.

Check the destination sign
