Adelaide is known as the 20 minute city - it only takes 20 minutes to walk, cycle or travel anywhere!
Almost 4,000 students choose to live in and around the Adelaide city centre. With most campuses located in the city, you’ll find it easy to get to and from your classes by walking, riding your bike or catching the free inner-city tram or bus. International students get access to the same extensive discounts on public transport as local students.
*Students who have a valid student ID from a CRICROS registered South Australian tertiary institution are eligible for a South Australian student card (concession card). Part-time students are not eligible for concession travel.
Currently you’ll find 2 brands of e-scooters coasting around Adelaide: Beam e-scooters and based RIDE e-scooters.
Scooters can be found and unlocked through each company’s smartphone app. Before you hop on, you’ll need to confirm that you’re 18 years or older (RIDE also requires photo ID). You’ll then need to agree to terms and conditions and enter your credit card details.
Both companies charge an unlocking fee, and from there it’s a pay-per-minute model – RIDE costs 25 cents, while Beam costs 30 cents. Conveniently, both companies have a pre-pay option.
In most cases, you can use your driver’s licence from your home country to drive in South Australia. However, you’ll have to make sure you have it with you whenever you drive, and it must be valid. Learn more about road rules in South Australia
