Hobart - City Transport

 
 
Hobart's public transport system, the Hobart Metro (timetable and fares tel 13 2201, infoline@metrotas.com.au ), is useful for getting to less central accommodation and some more distant points of interest. You can pre-purchase Metro Tens (a pack of ten discounted tickets) and get timetables from the Metroshop, inside the GPO on Elizabeth Street; the area outside - Elizabeth Street, Franklin Square and Macquarie Street - acts as the bus interchange. The handy yellow-painted Busy Bee bus does a circuit from Franklin Square through Battery Point and up Sandy Bay Road to the casino and back again. Single tickets , available from the driver, are valid for ninety minutes and cost from $1.30 (for a one- or two-zone journey); off-peak day-rover passes are $3.10. Busy Bee buses run until around 11pm from Monday to Thursday, until midnight on Friday and Saturday, and until about 10.30pm on Sunday, when there are only a few services. The Southern Cross Wanderer , a private ferry , runs to Bellerive, on the eastern shore, from Brooke Street Pier (tel 03/6223 1914 for times); the weekday peak-hour service ($3 one-way) is direct, while the weekend service stops en-route at the casino at Sandy Bay ($5 one-way; $3 to casino only). You can hail a taxi on the street, or there are taxi stands around the city, with the major one outside the Town Hall on Elizabeth Street.
