Due to key building developments and construction in the Hobart CBD, there will be additional disruptions to Metro services in the Hobart City interchange from 13 May 2018 to ensure we can operate efficiently and safely.


Effective 13 May 2018 the following changes will take effect:

Eastern shore services

  • Stop J (Macquarie St) will be closed and relocated to the eastern side of the Hobart City interchange near Collins St where stops G and H are currently located.
  • Stop M (Franklin Square) will be closed and relocated to 103 Macquarie St, opposite Franklin Square.
  • Services using the existing stops J and M will be redistributed across the two new departure points.
  • Eastern shore timetables will remain the same despite the new departure locations, except for one route 664 service and one route 665 service.

Northern suburbs services

  • Stops G and H located on the eastern side of the Hobart City interchange will be closed as the area will be used for the new eastern shore stop J.
  • Northern suburbs services that used stops G and H will be redistributed:
    • West Hobart and Mt Stuart route 540 will commence from stop F. There will be some timetable changes to route 540 services.
    • Lutana, Goodwood and Central Ave (East Moonah) routes 560 to 562 will commence from stop M (relocated to 103 Macquarie St). There will be a timetable change to some route 562 services.
    • Lenah Valley and New Town West all stops routes will commence from Elizabeth St stop 2 instead of the interchange. Express Lenah Valley route X50 will also commence from this stop.
  • Interchange stops E and F will continue to operate as normal.

Franklin Square stops N and P, and Murray St Stop Q will continue to operate as normal.
