UTAS student Greencard promotion

UTAS students can redeem a free Greencard and $5 bonus fare credit from the Metro Shop and Metro depots from 18 February.

We’re pleased to partner with the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian University Union for this promotion, which will be offered until 31 March or until stocks last.

How to get your free Greencard and bonus credit

Simply show your UTAS student identification at the Metro Shop (Hobart) or Metro depot (Launceston and Burnie) and fill out a Greencard application. If you top up your Greencard straight away with at least $10, you’ll get a bonus $5 credit.

This offer is not available from Greencard agents, or online. Offer valid while stocks last or until 31 March 2019, whichever comes first. 

New to the bus?

We’re proud to present a six-video series produced by students in the UTAS Sustainability Internship Program with helpful advice on the entire journey – from planning your trip, hailing and boarding, paying a fare, riding the bus, stopping, and what to do if you leave something behind.

Click the links below to watch.


We recommend you:

  • Be at your stop five minutes before your bus is scheduled to depart. This allows time for any delays during boarding and eliminates any last minute dash to the stop.
  • Signal for the bus driver to stop. Many different routes service each bus stop and it can be difficult for the driver to know which service the people waiting at a stop require.
  • Be respectful of your driver and fellow passengers. As per our conditions of travel, offensive or disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated on Metro buses.
  • Download the Metro App to have a Trip Planner, access to your personal Greencard profile, and important network alerts at your fingertips on the go.

Why use a Greencard?  

It makes boarding faster and more convenient without the need to worry about correct change – simply top it up online or by giving cash to the driver. It also offers great savings – get a 20% discount on all fares, free transfers within 90 minutes in the urban area, and capped daily fares.
