Thousands of people are expected to use public transport to get to the Royal Adelaide Show this year, avoiding the hassle of trying to find a park when the event begins this Friday.

Dedicated shuttle train services will operate between Adelaide and the Adelaide Showground stations every 30 minutes on weekday evenings and all day on weekends, with the Belair and Tonsley trains servicing the Adelaide Showground station to their regular timetables. All Seaford services, except express services, will stop at Adelaide Showground from 8:30am weekdays.

The 21W Show Shuttle bus will run every 20 minutes daily between stop V Currie Street in the city and the Goodwood Road bus interchange at the Showground.

Services depart Currie Street from 8am every day, with the last shuttle service leaving the Showgrounds at 11:15pm Monday to Saturday, and 10:15pm on Sunday.

The O-Bahn 22W Show Express buses will run every 15 minutes from 9am to 11am and every 20 minutes from 11am to 3pm, and then every 30 minutes from 3pm to 8pm Monday to Saturday, running via the O-Bahn and then direct to the Showground.

On Sundays the 22W Show Express will run every 30 minutes from 9am to 8pm via the O-Bahn and then direct to the Showground.

Trams will run to their regular timetable, with stop 3 Goodwood Road providing closest access to the Showground.

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.
