Have you noticed the “Get BusActive!” posters in our buses? They’re part of a study, conducted by the Menzies Institute for Medical Research. This research is all about uncovering the motivations behind bus travel and how it can positively impact physical activity.

Originally launched as a pilot study in 2019, this initiative has now expanded its reach to include participants from Hobart, Burnie, and Launceston, aged 15 and above. All eligible Tasmanians who participate will receive a generous $100 incentive, and half of the volunteers will have the opportunity to earn Metro GreenCard credit for meeting weekly bus trip targets.

Want to get involved? Metro encourages our valued customers to get involved in this study. Your insights can make a real difference in improving public health and community wellbeing.

If you currently rely on a motor vehicle for trips that could be taken by bus, are 15 years or older, and reside in Launceston, Burnie, or Hobart, we invite you to apply for participation in this study at or simply scan the QR code on one of the “Get BusActive!” posters displayed in our buses.
