Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The Transport Minister keeps talking about more buses feeding into train stations or terminating there-yet 75% of Adelaide has no train service-how does he expect this to work?
A challenge for whichever providers win the new contracts starting in July 2020?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

It seems that Adelaide Metro is anti Public Transport timetables.
With the impending closure of the Info Centre in Curie Street and the only other option is the Adelaide Railway Station the don't seem very interested in wanting to help commuters,visitors etc.

Are you sure you’re talking about Angas Street? Sounds a lot like Hackney Depot. Yes I am talking about Angas Street(Ci...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I wonder if Adelaide Metro will ever consider running most ex Glenelg trams straight through to the Entertainment Centre, and Botanic Gardens trams only to RAH and return?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

DPTI planned it sensibly. They should do the same with the trams when the system is up and running from...
