SA Government reintroduces double decker bus service from airport to city

A double decker bus service will return to Adelaide in November, running between the airport and city after being retired for more than half a century.

The State Government is leasing the buses on a six-month trial basis, mainly to cater for overseas and interstate visitors.

It will be the first time the buses have been used in Adelaide since double-decker trolleybuses were removed in 1958.

The new double decker JetExpress service will add to current JetBus services already offered linking Adelaide Airport to Glenelg, West Beach and the city.

Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan said each bus seats 92 passengers with a ticket costing the same a normal bus fare.

"We want to make sure we can improve our capacity across the network," Mr Mullighan said.

"Double decker buses hold a lot more people than our regular buses or even the long articulated buses.

"We also think it's an attractive novelty factor to jump on public transport and give it a go."

The service will pick up and drop off passengers on Grote Street adjacent the Central Market and Victoria Square, and proceed via Pulteney Street and North Terrace to cater for the major hotels within the CBD."

Mr Mullighan said the service will travel to and from the airport between 5:00am and 10:00am, and 4:00pm and 9:00pm on weekdays.

Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young said he expected the new double decker service would be popular with interstate and overseas visitors to SA.

"We're Australia's fastest growing capital city airport for international services, so there is certainly increased demand for an innovative, reliable public transport service between the airport and the city," Mr Young said.

This is actually a Surfside bus on loan to SA for 6 months.  Once done it will enter the Surfside fleet as no. 217.  (There are 9 double decks in the fleet at the moment including this one.)
