The current public transport system in Hobart includes buses, taxis, community transport and ferry services. Public transport relies on third party providers to operate the transport mode and associated services.

This consultation occurred between April 2017 and June 2017.

The City of Hobart has limited influence on the operational decisions of public transport providers. The City of Hobart can however assist public transport operations by:

  • providing road space for the operation of public transport vehicles

  • in certain instances provide associated infrastructure such as higher quality waiting facilities

  • advocate for improved funding and support for public transport from State and Federal Governments.

The background also included references to studies undertaken into light rail, ferry systems, park and ride and bus system improvements.
