Rideshare Services

Rideshare services such as Uber and Ola operate from Adelaide Airport. There's a designated pick-up zone, and once you're there, simply request your ride through the respective app.


Trams are an efficient and popular mode of transport in Adelaide, especially in the CBD. The entire city centre is a free tram zone, meaning no ticket is required for travel within this area. For destinations outside the free zone, like the University of South Australia's Mawson Lakes campus, ensure you tap on with your MetroCard to avoid penalties.

Key tram stops near the University of South Australia include the City West campus stop. Trams such as the Glenelg to Royal Adelaide Hospital route are particularly useful for attendees.


A MetroCard is your gateway to public transport in Adelaide, providing access to trams, buses, and trains. You can purchase and recharge these cards at most convenience stores, like OTR or Kmart, as well as MetroCard vending machines located in major transport hubs.

Walking and Cycling

For those inclined towards sustainable transportation, Adelaide welcomes you with open arms.

Adelaide is renowned for its cycling infrastructure, with numerous paths and bike lanes threading through the city. Adelaide Free Bikes is a convenient service available for visitors, offering complimentary bike hires for the day. There are several pick-up points throughout the city, including near the university campuses.

Should the skies be clear, a leisurely walk is a wonderful way to experience Adelaide's charm. Given the proximity of the University of South Australia's City West Campus to the CBD — a mere 10-minute stroll — walking not only provides a dose of daily exercise but also the chance to uncover Adelaide's hidden treasures.
