Southern region bus services are changing

15 January 2019|Community News| Off Comments off on Southern region bus services are changing|

FROM 20 January 2019, bus passengers in southern Tasmania will notice a series of improvements to their public transport network with all bus services in the southern region brought together under one network.

This will make travel simpler and pave the way for the introduction of a single integrated statewide transport network and a common ticketing system.

The focus has been on providing an improved public transport network to provide better access to employment, education and services, improving the overall social connectivity of Tasmanians within the budgetary constraints of the government.

One of the key outputs of the review is increasing services to major towns outside of Hobart.

The main benefit that the new network will have for residents of the northern suburbs will be the increased levels of integration between New Norfolk services and Metro northern suburbs services.

New Norfolk services will supplement Metro Turn-Up and Go services, particularly in the evening, creating the opportunity for northern suburbs residents to use New Norfolk services to travel between Granton and Hobart.

While the Department of State Growth continues to work with service providers towards an integrated ticketing system, fares for travel on New Norfolk services will be payable by cash only at the launch of this service.

New timetables and route maps are now available online.
