Hassle-free trip for show-goers on Adelaide Metro

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

3 September 2015

More than 20,000 people are expected to use public transport to get to the Royal Adelaide Show, avoiding the hassle of finding and paying for a park when the event begins this Friday.

Dedicated shuttle trains will operate between the Adelaide Railway Station and the Adelaide Showground station at night and on weekends during the 10 days of the Show.

These services are in addition to the normal timetabled services that already stop at the Adelaide Showground station.

Hop on board a dedicated shuttle or check the passenger information screens for any train servicing the Adelaide Showground, but don’t forget to validate your Metrocard or Metroticket.

There will also be buses every 15 minutes from Currie St in the city to the Showground and every 30 minutes from Tea Tree Plaza via the O-Bahn throughout the ten days of the Show.

Royal Adelaide Show Chief Executive John Rothwell said there would even be a special feature at the Showground station.

"Last year a novelty Show animal noise played every time a Metrocard was validated and it was so popular, particularly with children, that it will be used again this year," he said.

"Whether you are catching a train, tram or bus to the Show, there are more than 30 public transport stops and services within walking distance of the Showground to help you get there quickly and hassle-free."

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 at most times during the week and at all times on weekends.
