Graffiti and Vandalism

Adelaide Metro is committed to curbing incidents of graffiti and vandalism on public transport and associated infrastructure across the train, tram and bus network.

Graffiti attacks impact on the visual environment and affect not only public transport commuters but also the wider community.

The cost of cleaning graffiti is high, particularly as locations are subject to repeat attacks. This significant cost doesn’t include the inconvenience caused to commuters as a result of having buses, trains and trams taken offline for clean-up/removal work to occur.

In an effort to reduce graffiti attacks, Adelaide Metro has partnered with SA Police and Crime Stoppers SA to put the spotlight on graffiti vandals who cause damage.


If you know someone, or have you seen someone graffiti or vandalise public transport facilities or infrastructure make a report to Crime Stoppers SA.

Reports can be made to Crime Stoppers by phone at 1800 333 000, online at the Crime Stoppers website, or by using the Report Suspicious Behaviour app. You can remain anonymous.

For non-urgent police attendance call the Police Attendance line on 131 444.
