Improving the public transport customer experience and increasing public transport patronage are key objectives of both the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) and South Australian Public Transport Authority (SAPTA). Subsequently, the SAPTA Wayfinding Rulebook has been developed to deliver a consistent suite of signage across the Adelaide Metro network.

A simpler wayfinding system with enhanced information will be more user friendly contributing to making Adelaide’s public transport network easier to use and understand. The principles within the Wayfinding Rulebook will be used for all future public transport infrastructure projects.

The first project using these principles is the update of all existing Go Zone stops, CBD bus stops and bus interchange stops.

1,496 standard stops and 156 key stops will be installed:

  • 1419 suburban street locations
  • 140 city street locations
  • 93 bus interchange locations owned by the Department or Shopping Centres

Other details:

  • The Interchange maps have been updated to include more detail about services and facilities. These will be installed on the backside of interchange stops.
  • Customer Information (timetables, maps, website, etc.) will be progressively updated to reflect the Rulebook principles


  • Start Installations: February 2021
  • Finish Installations: June 2021
