Bus service uplift
A new express bus service between Huonville and Hobart commenced in mid-July.
The new service, run by Tassielink, will run four times in each direction during the morning and afternoon peak periods, with the company purchasing two new buses specifically for this service.
This is the first of several bus service uplifts planned over the next 12 months to encourage more people to use public transport and manage traffic flow along Hobart’s southern corridor by providing an end-to-end solution with faster and more frequent bus services.
The package of integrated projects includes: a dedicated transit lane on the Southern Outlet; clearways and bus priority measures on Macquarie and Davey Streets to improve the flow of buses within the city; and park and ride facilities at Huntingfield and Firthside.
