Hobart Central Bus Interchange Planning Study
The project is a joint partnership between the Hobart City Council, Department of Infrastructure Energy and Resources, Metro Tasmania and the Tasmania Bus Association (TasBus) and was awarded funding from the Australian Government under the Liveable Cities Program.
The project is a planning study that aims to:
- identify optimal arrangements for public transport access across the Hobart CBD, including location of a central interchange and bus stops
- improve the amenity of bus travel, by providing for a high level of passenger comfort, safety and security while waiting for buses and transferring between bus services in the Hobart CBD
- provide public transport access points that better meet the needs of public transport users
- improve the travel time reliability of bus services travelling into and through the CBD
- integrate regular passenger (bus) transport services into a single interchange facility or set of adjacent facilities
- increase patronage on public bus services travelling to and through the Hobart CBD.
Project consultants, Parsons Brinckerhoff were engaged to undertake the transport planning study and to produce the Hobart Central Bus Interchange Plan in 2013.
