It only takes $2 to be a Real Mate. Get home safely on New Year’s Eve with MAIB Nightrider!

Thanks to the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB), Metro will operate late night services in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie this NYE. With $2 flat fares from 6pm, be a real mate and ensure you and your crew make the right transport choice to get home safely.

Nightrider services are in addition to a regular Sunday timetable in Hobart and Launceston that will operate on 31 December 2017. In Burnie, as only Hospital Link timetables operate on a Sunday, special Nightrider services will begin from 3pm (normal fares will apply until 6pm).

$2 flat fares are available as cash fares only. Passengers using Greencard will be required to pay the normal fare. Students tickets will be available at the normal fare.

Departure points:

Burnie: All services will depart from Metro bus interchange in Cattley Street

Launceston: From 9.30pm, most services (except route 90) will commence from Royal Park and travel via the St John Street interchange:

Hobart: From 10pm, most buses to the eastern shore and Northern Suburbs will commence from special bus stops in Salamanca Place (near the Supreme Court), then proceed to the Hobart Bus Interchange. Buses to southern suburbs will depart from Franklin Square then make a stop in Davey Street at the top of Salamanca Place:
