HOBART: routes 522, 530, 696 and X30

EFFECTIVE FROM: Monday 13 May 2024

Due to recent recurring incidents of dangerous rock-throwing, Metro has again adjusted the ongoing suspension of evening services into Gagebrook and Herdsmans Cove until further notice. This means that the Route 522 will commence and terminate at Cove Hill Fair after 5.00pm. Routes 530, X30 and 696 will now be commencing and terminating at Old Beach after 5:00pm.  If you are looking to travel north of Old Beach, we recommend catching route 520, X20, 522 services to get you as close to your destination as is possible with these restrictions in place.
