If you’re planning to take something on a bus, train or tram that will take up extra space, please think about its impact other passengers and the space available at the time you want to travel. If there is not enough space to carry your item safely on-board, you may need to wait for the next service.
A driver may stop you from boarding a bus, train or tram if you have anything with you that is:
Drivers can’t physically help you get on to vehicles or lift your items for you. If you can’t do these things independently, please bring someone who can help you.
Provided there is space available, you can take your bike on a train for free on weekends and public holidays.
From Monday to Friday, you need to pay a separate peak concession fare to take your bike on a train before 9am or between 3pm and 6pm. Outside of these times, it's free.
You can secure your bike in an empty wheelchair space during your trip but you must move it if someone using a mobility aid needs the area.
Bikes are not allowed on buses or trams. There is not enough space for passengers to move around them safely, or anywhere to secure a bike while the vehicle is moving.
Not allowed on buses, trams or trains.
Folding bikes are allowed on buses, trains and trams for free, as long as they are folded and fully enclosed a bag no bigger than 90cm x 60cm x 40cm.
Use our interactive map to locate a bike locker or secure bike cage at a station or interchange.
To find out if a bike locker is available at the location you need, put a locker on hold, or join the waiting list, call the Adelaide Metro InfoLine on 1300 311 108 or visit the InfoCentre at the Adelaide Railway Station. You need to pay a $50 deposit to hire a locker, which will be refunded when you are finished using it and return the key.
Bike cage access is free for public transport users and can be added to your registered metroCARD. You can either visit the InfoCentre at the Adelaide Railway Centre or call the Adelaide Metro InfoLine on 1300 311 108. Please note that if you call us for bike cage access, you need to validate your metroCARD at a barrier gate or on-board a bus, train or tram to load the update to your card before you can unlock a bike cage.
Once you have permission to access bike cages, you can open them by tapping your metroCARD on the validator at the entrance. Bicycles and helmets are stored at your own risk, so please provide an appropriate lock to secure your bike to any available rail. We don’t recommend you leave anything in the bike cage overnight. Any bikes or accessories left in the cage for more than two weeks will be removed and disposed of.
Prams, strollers and push chairs are allowed on all buses, trains and trams. You can use priority seating areas near the doors and sit alongside the pram.
Please do not park prams in aisles or block other passengers’ movement around the vehicle. You can store folded prams in the designated luggage areas.
If you cannot board a bus, train or tram directly, the driver or passenger attendant can setup the access ramp for you. Once on-board, it’s safest to leave your child strapped in the pram and, where possible, face the child to the rear of the vehicle. Always apply pram brakes and don’t hang heavy items from the pram, as they may cause it to tip.
When you are approaching the end of your trip, using the stop buttons in the priority seating areas tells the driver you need a ramp to exit the vehicle. The safest way to exit with a pram is with the child facing towards the inside of the vehicle.
You can take luggage up to 90cm x 60cm x 40cm on-board. You need to make sure it doesn’t block other passengers’ movement around the vehicle. You can store it in the designated luggage area or next to you, if the space is not needed by another passenger.
Personal shopping trolleys up to the size of a suitcase are allowed on-board. Supermarket trolleys are not.
Surfboards are allowed on trains if there is space. You must pay a separate concession fare for a surfboard. Surfboards are not allowed on buses or trams.
Foot-powered scooters are allowed on-board when there is space available. They must be folded and fully enclosed a bag no bigger than 90cm x 60cm x 40cm.
