Going to the Royal Adelaide Show this year? Make the smart move and hop on a bus, train or tram to get there.
During the 10 days of the Show (Friday 2 September to Sunday 11 September) there will be extra stops and services, in addition to the normal timetabled services, to help show-goers get to the event quickly and hassle-free.
With more than 30 Adelaide Metro public transport stops and services within walking distance of the Showground, including a dedicated bus interchange and railway station, jump on board and save yourself the parking hassles and fees.
Hop on board a dedicated shuttle or check the passenger information screens for any train servicing the Adelaide Showground, and don’t forget to validate your Metrocard or Metroticket.
Show-goers are reminded that children under five can travel free at all times when accompanied by a fare paying adult.
Up to two children under the age of 15 can travel free on weekends when accompanied by an adult using a Daytrip ticket.
Seniors also travel free of charge from midnight to 7.00am, 9.01am to 3.00pm and 7.01pm to midnight weekdays, and at all times on weekends.
