The State Government will run additional public transport services on Anzac Day to get South Australians to and from the city for the Dawn Service and Anzac Day Commemorative March.
There will also be free travel on all Adelaide Metro buses, trains and trams on Anzac Day for;
- past and present military personnel who are wearing a uniform;
- people wearing service medals; and,
- people carrying a war veteran’s identification card.
Regular Adelaide Metro bus and train services will operate to a Sunday and public holiday timetable.
The Dawn Service at the State War Memorial will commence at 6am, with the Commemorative March from the War Memorial beginning at 9.30am. The march will travel along North Terrace, King William Road and Sir Edwin Smith Avenue to the Cross of Sacrifice.
A free fully accessible Adelaide Metro Digger Shuttle will be running clockwise from the Cross of Sacrifice on King William Road to Victoria Square every 15 minutes after the Anzac Day March from 12.15pm to 1.30pm.
“Anzac Day is a special day where Australians reflect and honour the sacrifices made by the brave servicemen and women who have served and continue to serve our great nation,” said Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll.
“In order to help the large crowds attend Anzac Day services, Adelaide Metro will be putting on additional public transport services as usual.
“We want to help facilitate as many people as possible attend Anzac Day services.
“As a small token of our appreciation, veterans and military personnel will be able to travel for free across our public transport network too.”
