Metro Shop opens in traditional home
Metro Tasmania has officially opened a new Metro Shop at its Springfield depot.
Metro Tasmania Chief Executive Officer Katie Cooper said it had been almost 10 years since Metro had operated a similar shop front for customers at its depot home.
“Given the growing importance of the transport corridor through the northern suburbs of Hobart, it’s the right time for our customers and business to return a Metro Shop to this area,” she said.
Ms Cooper said the new shop would add to Metro’s increasing network of 23 Greencard agents across the state, supporting the 85% of Metro passengers using a Greencard for their travel.
“We’re excited to offer customers a new and convenient option to get or top up a Greencard, and access a range of other services and support,” she said.
Metro Chair Tim Gardner said facilities like the new Metro Shop enabled the company to deliver a better customer experience.
“Alongside our upgraded Tasmanian-built bus fleet, the new Metro Shop is the latest example of how Metro is modernising to better connect communities,” he said.
The Metro Shop at the Springfeld depot will also be home to Metro’s hotline which receives 130 calls a day from across the state.
