Trams also have wheelchair access, but no bikes are allowed. There are also a couple of other stops along Jetty Road to the top of Brighton Road - all of Jetty Road is FREE. From Brighton Road, you must pay on board with a card or coins, but dollar notes are not accepted. Most newsagents will sell travel tickets/passes.

Moseley Street in Glenelg (the last street on the left if you are heading towards the Jetty) has a range of buses going to the city: 265, 190, 167, J1, and more. There are also buses that will take you to Henley Beach, Habour Town, Adelaide Airport, Brighton, Marion Shopping Centre, and Unley. Buses have a fee, and you can get tickets/passes from the driver or most newsagents. Once again, there are no bikes.
