Adelaide Oval Footy Express Tips

Your ticket for the game is also your ticket to travel free on any Adelaide Oval Footy Express bus, train or tram service operated by Adelaide Metro.

You can travel on your regular service, however Adelaide Metro recommends that you use dedicated Footy Express services to alleviate overcrowding on regular services and get you close to the oval.

  • Travel free on regular Adelaide Metro services when you show your game day ticket, members pass or season ticket.
  • Services to the game will drop off as close to Adelaide Oval as possible, however after the  games you will need to go to the dedicated bus stop shown on the interchange map.
  • Adelaide Oval Footy Express bus services will not pick up/drop off at regular Adelaide Metro stops in the city. They operate only to their dedicated Footy Express stop.
  • Adelaide Oval Footy Express bus services will operate from many suburban stops. Some services will pick up at all stops on the route, while others will stop at limited stops.
  • Some services will require passengers to transfer from a bus to a train, check your timetables in the guide.
