29 August 2016

Thousands of show-goers are expected to use public transport and avoid the hassles of finding and paying for parking to get to this year’s Royal Adelaide Show from this Friday.

Dedicated shuttle trains will operate between the Adelaide Railway Station and the Adelaide Showground Station between 7.10pm and 11.38pm week days and from 8.40am to 11.38pm 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, and don’t forget to validate your Metrocard or Metroticket.

There will also be buses from 8am daily every 20 minutes from Currie Street in the City to the Showground, and from 9am every 30 minutes from Tea Tree Plaza via the O-Bahn.

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.

For full details about available bus, train and tram services visit or call the Adelaide Metro Infoline on 1300 311 108.
