Taxi and public transport
South Terrace Urology has a direct link with a taxi service providing an efficient service. Trans Adelaide buses stop within walking distance of the practice near the corner of Hutt Street and South Terrace.
The closest stops are Stop 03 (on Hutt Street, just before South Terrace travelling from the Southern suburbs into the city) and Stop K1 (on Hutt Street, just before South Terrace travelling from the City toward the Southern Suburbs). Contact Metro Adelaide or call 1300 311 108 for timetable info.
There is usually council car parking available on South Terrace. A set down/pickup area is available in the front car park entrance. It would be appreciated if patients and their carers park on South Terrace leaving the front park for disabled and ambulance access.
