All feedback received was very helpful in directing our resources to where they can be best utilised. With this proposal we aim to deliver a simpler, faster and more frequent bus services to our customers.
Some of the initiatives that form part of this review include:
- Introduction of Turn Up and GO between Shoreline and Hobart that provides a high frequency services between 7am and 7pm, running every 10 minutes Monday to Friday and every 20-30 minutes on weekends.
- Improved services to Brighton and Old Beach.
- Revitalisation of direct services to the University of Tasmania from the eastern shore and northern suburbs.
We are working closely with community based transport providers to assist any passengers impacted by the proposed changes.
Metro is committed to undertaking an extensive public education campaign in the lead up to the changes to ensure the community is on board with us as we take this important step towards a better connected Hobart.
New timetables associated with the changes will be made available in advance of changes taking effect to allow passengers ample time to plan their travel.
