Adelaide Metro is Adelaide’s public transport system. It is run by the Government of South Australia’s Department for Infrastructure and Transport, on behalf of the Rail Commissioner and the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.
The Adelaide Metro network operates around greater metropolitan Adelaide (PDF, 4770 KB), using buses, trains and trams.
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport has contracted a number of private transport providers to run regional transport services. Within these are a number of services connecting regional areas to metropolitan Adelaide.
If we need a public transport plan, we will work with you and other relevant stakeholders to develop it and submit it for approval. Depending on the type of event and its impact on services, you may need to pay a fee. Fees vary between events.
