Adelaide Metro will provide extra buses, trains and trams to get you to and from this year’s Credit Union Christmas Pageant.
Normal Adelaide Metro fares will apply for all services and customers are encouraged to pre-purchase their metroCARD or tickets to avoid boarding delays on the day.
A Daytrip ticket is recommended for families attending the pageant with children – on weekends two children under 15 years of age can travel free when accompanied by an adult using a Daytrip ticket, and children under 5 travel free at all times.
If you travel with a pram or stroller, it is appreciated if you could fold it down prior to boarding for the safety and convenience of all passengers.
To accommodate road closures along the Pageant route, tram services will be altered.
Trams will operate at the following times:
Glenelg to South Terrace
Entertainment Centre to Adelaide Railway Station
