Bus Service - Mt Nelson/Tolmans HIll

There will be an increase in service capacity to Taroona High School for Mt Nelson/Tolmans Hill students in the afternoon.

Currently, a route 282 service to Hobart departs Taroona High School at 2:47pm to the Hobart CBD, to increase capacity of other route 282 services at 2:45 and 2:50pm. This arrangement is temporary.

The 2:47pm service will become permanent (subject to ongoing demand). After arriving in Hobart, the bus will then operate a new route X58 (school days only) Hobart to Tolmans Hill and Mt Nelson at 3:20pm on school days. Students travelling through to Mt Nelson will be able to remain on board between trips.

Music Showcase

The 5:30pm show is now SOLD OUT - A recording of this will be shared in due course.

Teacher Strike Action - Wednesday 9 November

Taroona High School will close at 12:15pm today, normal classes are scheduled for the morning. Bus services will remain the same as a normal school day.

Further information can be found on the Department’s website

Bus Fares

All students catching school buses need to pay a fare – either by purchasing a bus ticket - $15.20 for a sheet of 10 tickets or $1.90 for a single ticket or by showing a free pass greencard.

We are having increasing difficulty getting students to show their bus passes to the driver. Students seem to think they don’t have to pay and can just walk past the bus driver.

Under the Dept State Growth regulations, the fares must be paid to the bus company.
