Metro is offering everyone flat fares for travelling on its buses on the weekend of February 11th and 12th. The offer extends to February 13th in Hobart only for the Regatta Day public holiday.
Fares on all services are one low flat fare of $2 for adults per journey and $1 for student and concession passengers per journey.
The flat fare weekend is a chance for more people to use Metro services to experience bus travel.
This particular weekend is packed with major events and travelling on Metro buses provides a safe, convenient and enjoyable alternative to taking your own car.
Events over the long weekend include Festivale in Launceston, the Hobart Regatta, Hobart Cup and the Wynyard Made with Love market.
Metro is encouraging people to use buses not just to go to and from major events on this weekend, but to use regular services between other destinations – to see family and friends, go to the beach, go to shopping centres and so on.
The availability of the free fare services varies from region to region. As Monday February 13th is a public holiday in Southern Tasmania, the fare free services extend to this day in Hobart and surrounds. Standard fares apply to Metro services in Launceston and Burnie on Monday February 13th.
Details about transport arrangements specific to events will be posted here soon.

Last thing I heard was TasPol were having a lot of grief with the new digital radio system rollout, and had to revert back to analog for a while. Not sure if they're back to digital now though... 999 might be able to enlighten us on the issue.

My Brother whos a cop lives up here said they have something like it where if they lose there radio or need to know where they are they can track it. Also if they lose a radio it can be found and shutoff so no one can use it. maybe they might get something like that to stop it from happening in the future

A once good company has now been dismantled and scrapped, by the powers that be
