Adelaide Metro halts train services for 4 hours during peak hour today due to industrial action

Industrial action will disrupt Adelaide Metro’s train services today during peak hour. With limited substitute buses available, commuters face a challenging commute.

Industrial action taken by some drivers of private contractor, Keolis Downer Adelaide, has led to the cancellation of train services today (Wednesday 17 April) from 3pm to 7pm. While the advised duration of the protest is scheduled between 4pm and 6pm today, the effects will be experienced from approximately 3pm. The return of normal train timetables is not expected until after 7pm.

Adelaide Metro is making diligent efforts to limit the adverse effects of this industrial action for its train passengers. Despite their efforts, the timing of the action corresponds with the afternoon and evening peak time. This means limited substitute bus services will be available. The operation of a few substitute bus services in close proximity to train lines has been confirmed.

It is strongly recommended for customers to make alternative transport arrangements, owing to the current situation. Options for commuting include regular bus services, trams, or securing a ride with family or friends. Working from home is also suggested if feasible.

Updated information regarding the impact on train services will be consistently provided by Adelaide Metro via various channels including their official website, their Twitter account (Adelaide Metro’s X account) and their Facebook page.

Customers can also remain updated about the disruption to services through signage put up in the Adelaide Railway Station and across the network station announcements.

For any further enquiries, customers can contact the Adelaide Metro Infoline at 1300 311 108 or visit the Adelaide Metro InfoCentre located in the Adelaide Railway Station. Both these services are available from 7am until 8pm daily.

Adelaide Metro extends its gratitude to all customers for their patience in these trying times. They regret the inconvenience caused due to the industrial action undertaken today.
