CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

Dear all,

Next Wednesday is one of the most significant days on the calendar, with the Anzac Day Dawn Service and March of Remembrance in the city hugely important to thousands of South Australians.

Once again, we are proud to provide extra services on Anzac Day to help get passengers to and from the city. This includes extra train, tram and bus services, with some routes running from as early as 4.30 am, as well as extra capacity on some train services.

A free, fully accessible shuttle will also operate from the Cross of Sacrifice on King William Road to Victoria Square after the Anzac Day march, every 15 minutes from 12.15 pm to 1.30 pm.

All past and present military personnel who are in uniform, people wearing service medals and people carrying a war veteran’s identification card will receive free travel on all Adelaide Metro services.

Thank you to all of our staff who work so hard on this public holiday to help provide this level of service to our passengers, and especially our military personnel.


Congratulations to Anne Alford, who has been officially appointed as Deputy Rail Commissioner.

I have formally been appointed Rail Commissioner and Commissioner of Highways.

Happy reunion

Murray Bridge Depot Supervisor Daryl Evans has given new meaning to the term “going the extra mile” for our customers.

Upon learning that a young girl’s teddy bear had been lost on the South Eastern Freeway, he set out to put things right and remarkably was able to find the toy by the side of the road and reunite it with one very happy little girl.
