Hobart to Bothwell via Brighton – Changes to Afternoon Service

Posted on


TO:     Parents of students using Hobart to Bothwell (via Brighton) School Bus




Following consultation, including an earlier letter you should have received about proposed changes to the Hobart to Bothwell school service, the Department of State Growth has decided to go ahead with the proposed changes to your school bus service. This means there will now be a change to the afternoon timetable of this school bus, allowing many students to arrive home earlier, and that stops at TAFE and St Michaels Collegiate School will no longer be serviced by this bus.

O’Driscoll Coaches is working with the Department of State Growth to implement a cashless electronic card system (named TransportMe) that began at the start of term 2, Monday 29 April 2019.

This new system will allow passengers to board services faster, provide live tracking of buses and live alerts when your bus has reached any stop.

As of 29 April, passengers are able to apply for a TransportMe card through the online application form on our website. Your first card is FREE. If you lose your card, a new card will attract a replacement fee.

Download the FREE “TransportMe Passenger” app from the App Store or Google Play to access live bus tracking NOW! 

Please note: STUDENT FREE travel cards will still be accepted.
