All northbound and Lenah Valley buses will travel from the Hobart City Interchange via Brisbane St in order to reach Elizabeth St and continue their normal route. Due to traffic conditions, buses may need to use either Argyle St or Brooker Ave to access Brisbane St.

The following bus stops will be closed for northbound services:

  • Elizabeth St Stop 2 outbound before Bathurst St

Intending customers should use the following alternative stops:

  • Hobart City Interchange
  • Elizabeth St Stop 3 outbound past Brisbane St

Please note that ONLY Routes 540, 560, 561, 562 & X42 are picking up passengers at Argyle St Stop 1 (past Elizabeth St). All services that normally travel via Elizabeth St are picking up only at the alternative stops listed above.


Route 540 to West Hobart Diversion:

Route 540 will depart Stop 1 Argyle St then travel Melville St, Murray St to reach Liverpool St and then continue as normal.
Please board the service at Stop 2 Liverpool Street, past Murray Street.

  • Liverpool St Stop L1 will be closed until further notice.

The closure of this section of Liverpool St may cause traffic congestion elsewhere in the CBD, which may have a network-wide impact on services.

School Service Disruptions:

Route 203AM from the City to St Mary’s, Friends and Ogilvie High will depart Elizabeth St Stop A3 as normal, then travel via Macquarie St, Brooker Ave, Brisbane St, Murray St to Liverpool St and resume normal route.
Students who would normally board Route 203 at Stop L1 Liverpool St should instead board the service at Stop 2 Liverpool Street, past Murray Street.

Route 605 from Tranmere to Glenorchy and Austins Ferry via Elizabeth St will travel via the normal route to the ABC roundabout, then via Brooker Ave and Brisbane St to Elizabeth St to resume the normal route.
Customers who would normally board/alight Route 605 at Stop 2 Elizabeth St past Liverpool St should instead do so at Stop 3 Eizabeth St outside the Salvation Army Citadel.

The return afternoon service from Austins Ferry to Tranmere will continue to follow the normal route via Elizabeth St and Bathurst St.
