Improved bus services to Sorell
Improved bus services will commence for Sorell on Saturday 1 February 2020 as part of ongoing statewide bus network enhancements.
To ensure bus services more accurately reflect the needs of local communities and provide better access to employment, education and other services, we have identified timetable and route improvements to Carlton/Dodges Ferry and Sorell services.
There will be three extra weekday services for Carlton and Dodges Ferry with the current Sorell to Hobart service at 1:00pm to now start at Carlton at 12:25pm, and the 10:00am and 2:00pm services from Hobart to continue through to Dodges Ferry/Carlton.
To assist Entura and other Cambridge workers at Cambridge Park, all services via Cambridge, including the morning X31 from Hobart at 7:00am and the afternoon X31 from Sorell at 5:00pm, will now travel via Kennedy Dr/Bungana Way in Cambridge. The Tasmanian Government has also constructed new bus stops on Bungana Way to support these services.
Weekends services to and from Dodges Ferry/Carlton will double, meaning residents will have greater choice when travelling to and from Hobart. The additional services will include a mid-morning service to Hobart departing Carlton at 9:40am and an afternoon service to Dodges Ferry/Carlton departing Hobart at 4:30pm to better suit work times.
