Hobart - Launceston

Postby boronia » Wed Sep 10, 2014 10:15 am

Hi Tassies

I would like to do a one day return trip Hobart-Launceston-Hobart.

All the TTs I have found seem to be biased to LAUN-HOB-LAUN travel.

Have I missed something? Is there such a service?

Contact Redline if you need support on working out how to get from Hobart to Launceston and return leg. I'm assuming you mean the bus will leave Launceston arrive in Hobart and return to Launceston , I can't help you with that but they should have a service from Hobart to Lonnie and return. :D

I just checked the online booking and could do it. 3 trips each way came up.

Thanks for the replies

The first Redline service out of Hobart is 1015 and doesn't get to Laun until 1300. Return is 1700, which doesn't give much time there.

Was hoping for something earlier, if possible.

Tassie Link was even later.

Unfortunately, the early services went many years ago boronia, due to passenger numbers :(
