Getting around

No matter what your mode of transport is, getting into the city can be simple this season.

To assist people getting to Christmas events with ease, Adelaide Metro operate additional bus, train and tram services.

Check their calendar.

Don’t waste time searching for a car park for Christmas – park at UPark.

This Christmas season you can book around the city from $6 at UPark Topham, Grote or Pirie on nights and weekends.

Or get your Rundle Mall shopping done when you book $8 Parking at UPark Wyatt on nights and weekends.

When you book your parking online with UPark, you guarantee yourself a car park close to your destination. That means no driving around the city, wasting time trying to find somewhere to park.
