Avoid congestion associated with the busy return to school period and TRAVEL FREE before 7am on all Hobart urban Metro services from Tuesday 29 January to Friday 22 February 2019.

Did you know each bus has the potential to take up to 60 cars off the road? Join us to experience a commute without the hassles of traffic congestion, concentrating on the busy road, or finding and paying for a parking space.

When you switch to travelling on an early morning bus, you can enjoy a more comfortable on board experience while contributing to reduced peak hour congestion. Spend your commute relaxing, being productive, or catching up on entertainment – all for free.

While not everyone’s travel needs are flexible, an early morning bus offers a comfortable on board experience, more reliable travel time, and helps to ease traffic congestion during the peaks. From public transport to flexible scheduling active transport, or carpooling – try something different, even one day a week!
