Additional New Norfolk bus services

Derwent Valley Link

The Department of State Growth has listened to the community’s concerns regarding changes to bus services for New Norfolk and the Derwent Valley with new services to commence from Monday (18th February).

Based on feedback received since the start of school last Wednesday, including the concerns raised at the recent public forum, an additional dedicated school bus service will be introduced, which will start at Fairview at 6:55am and depart New Norfolk central at 7:15am. 

This new school-only service will run direct via the highway to Friends, Elizabeth College, St Marys College, St Michaels Collegiate, Hutchins and Mount Carmel.

In the afternoon, the return service will depart Hutchins at 3:35pm and pick up Hutchins, Mount Carmel, Collegiate, Lambert School and Friends School students before travelling direct to New Norfolk.

For general commuters, the current 7:17am general access bus from New Norfolk will now run as a Super Express service to the Glenorchy Interchange via the Brooker Highway and then straight on to the city via the Brooker Highway and Campbell Street. 

It will no longer detour via Claremont or pick up people along the Brooker highway.

The Department is also working to determine whether the return service at either 5:06pm or 5:50pm from Hobart to New Norfolk should also be Super Express with a decision to be made shortly following feedback from users and the community.

The services will be provided by O’Driscoll’s Coaches (Derwent Valley Link).

State Growth has been working hard to get the new services running smoothly to get people to work and school on time and will continue to monitor and adjust services as required.

See the new school bus route information at: morning and afternoon.
