Adelaide Metro has announced an exciting new payment option has arrived for bus tickets in the city
In a big move for Adelaide’s public transport ticketing, the new tap and pay option has been rolled out across Adelaide Metro buses to provide a new option for passengers
The implementation of this new system forms part of a network-wide ticketing upgrade designed to make public transport simpler, safer and easier to use.
Adelaide Metro tap and pay is already available with Visa or Mastercard on trams and O-Bahn buses, with Adelaide Metro saying it will be available on all buses, including Adelaide Metro Outer South, by mid-2023.
As part of the network-wide ticketing upgrade, paper MetroTickets are being phased out and will no longer be accepted on buses from July 1 this year.
Single trips and daytrips that were available as paper MetroTickets are now available on a metroCARD.
Customers can purchase single trip or daytrip tickets from either the Adelaide Metro Info Centre or their local metroCARD retailer on a metroCARD, with the metroCARD remaining free until June 30.
For customers in Adelaide wanting to transfer between vehicles or travel with a concession fare, metroCARD remains the best option.
