Metro Tasmania

Metro is the largest passenger transport company in Tasmania and we are proud to operate bus services connecting people and communities in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie.

Planning your travel:

Getting from A to B starts with planning your journey. There are a few ways to find out which bus you need:

• use the Trip Planner on the website or app
• look at timetables here or at the bus stop
• call the Metro hotline on 13 22 01

Paying your fare:

For a faster and safer travel experience with Metro, we recommend paying fares with a Greencard. A Greencard is like a digital wallet – top it up with credit to make catching a bus easier, quicker and cheaper.

Greencard makes your travel easier, faster and cheaper with:

• 20% discount on all fares;
• transfer between buses for free within 90 minutes; and
• fares capped at low rates for all-day travel

You can set up a convenient automatic top up online or add credit to your Greencard as you need it:

• online
• using the Metro app
• at a Greencard agent
• on a bus

Using the Metro Tas app

Everything you need to navigate the Metro Tasmania bus network in the palm of your hand. With the Metro Tas app you can:
• Plan your next trip
• Save your favourite destinations (including work, school and home) and your favourite trips
• Manage your Greencard account (including check your balance, view trip history, and top up your card)
• View the latest news and updates about bus schedules
