Menzies research – Free Before 7

Did the early bird catch the worm?

During January and February 2018, the Metro initiative Free Before 7 enabled people to catch buses in the urban Hobart region for Free Before 7 am.

Menzies are researching travel behaviours, physical activity and health in Tasmania to establish crucial evidence about the feasibility and effectiveness of strategies to increase healthy travel behaviours (use of active or public transport). They would like to talk to bus users to understand the barriers, benefits and impacts of Free Before 7.

Each participant will be offered a $20 Metro Greencard voucher.

If you want to be involved and:

  • are aged 18+ years;
  • usually catch the bus at least once/week on weekday mornings in Hobart; 
  • did or did not take advantage of Free Before 7; and
  • can participate in a brief telephone interview (30 mins)
