All Adelaide Metro train passengers will travel free tomorrow (15 September) as a gesture of goodwill from the State Government.

“Whenever there are disruptions to our train services, whether they are planned or not, it is always incredibly frustrating for our passengers.” Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Stephen Mullighan said.

“Our Adelaide Metro passengers have been extremely patient during the recent disruptions and a day of free travel is one way of showing a gesture of goodwill for their patience.”

The free services will operate from the first service to last service on Thursday 15 September for all passengers on the Seaford and Tonsley, Outer Harbor and Grange, Gawler and Belair lines.

Metrocard validators on all trains will be switched off to ensure that customers are not charged.

“We are working hard to reach an agreement with our rail network employees so that we can avoid further disruptions.” Mr. Mullighan said.

The day of free travel is a gesture of goodwill to Adelaide Metro train passengers whose travel has been disrupted recently as the Government negotiates a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement with employees on the train network.
