Information on bikes and the public transport network.

Bikes on board

Bikes are not allowed on buses or trams. However, they can be carried on trains during the following times: 

Monday to Friday before 9:00am and after 3:00pm: If you are travelling with a bike on trains during these times you must hold a validated concession metroCARD or MetroTicket for your bike. During peak travel times space may be limited on services making it impractical for bikes to travel safely. Adelaide Metro asks that you please wait for the next available service with enough space to safely board and secure your bike.  

  • Bikes can be carried for free on trains Monday to Friday between 9.01am and 3pm or between 6pm and the last service when space is available. 
  • Bikes can be carried Free Saturday, Sunday & public holidays all day when space is available. At all other times a peak concession fare must be purchased for your bike.
  • It's free to take a fold up bike or foot-powered scooter on-board which are fully enclosed in a bag up to 90cm long x 60cm high x 40cm if space permits.
