Adelaide has a small city centre so it is easy to get around on foot or bicycle along the many cycling paths. A novel service is the Adelaide City Bikes Scheme, where visitors and residents can hire a bike within the city centre, with the first two hours free. Those wishing to explore further afield can make good use of the Adelaide Connector free bus service, which provides a safe and convenient link between north and south Adelaide through the central city area. The 19-seater free buses are fitted with disability access and run seven days a week except public holidays. There are also other free bus services in the CBD itself aimed at carrying visitors between the main sights. The city is also served by the TransAdelaide rail system that extends across the metropolitan area via five rail lines: Outer Harbour, Gawler, Noarlunga, Grange and Belair. Most visitors enjoy a trip on the 1929 historic vintage tram, which departs from Victoria Square at regular intervals, carrying passengers to Glenelg in about 30 minutes. Numerous taxi companies operate in the city and cabs can be hired at stands, hailed in the street or booked by telephone.
