Metro Tasmania has been working with Ogilvie and New Town High Schools, the Department of Education and the Department of State Growth on measures to provide additional capacity in the afternoon to Claremont and Austins Ferry. This has involved reviewing patronage on existing school buses, and it has been determined that resources can be reallocated to better service both schools.

Effective Monday 29 May, 2017, the following service alterations will occur:

ROUTE 206PM: Ogilvie & New Town High to Chigwell via Rosetta (departs 3.33pm)

  • This service will be withdrawn. Students travelling to Chigwell and Rosetta should instead catch the Route 513 bus departing New Town Rd at 3.04pm, the Route 512 at 3.34pm or the Route 513 at 3.39pm.

ROUTE 202PM: New Town & Ogilvie High EXPRESS to Austins Ferry via Abbotsfield

  • This is a NEW school bus service designed to provide a faster trip home for Claremont and Austins Ferry students that currently catch the Route 510 bus departing at 3.21pm.
  • This service will commence from New Town Rd Stop 16 INWARDS (Creek Rd) at 3.17pm to pick up New Town High students, then proceed to Stop 15 INWARDS to pick up Ogilvie High students, departing 3.21pm.
  • From Stop 15 the bus will travel EXPRESS to first set down at Main Rd Claremont Stop 37 (before Box Hill Rd), then all stops en-route as per the route map.
