Buy before you ride the bus

30 Mar 2020

To help protect staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, bus drivers can no longer sell paper MetroTickets on-board buses.

Bus passengers can still use paper MetroTickets but will need to buy it before they catch a bus. We recommend making the switch to a plastic, rechargeable metroCARD.

There are metroCARD retailers across Adelaide and the cards are easy to use, convenient and cheaper than paper MetroTicket fares. To make it easier for you to buy or recharge metroCARDs, we've added more vending and recharge machines to the network. Many of the vending machines accept cash as well as credit/debit card.
