Update on Metro Tasmania Bus Services

Metro Tasmania is continuing to respond to COVID-19 under the guidance of the Department of Health, and the health and safety of passengers and staff is our highest priority.

In order to transport students to and from school, all services will continue to operate to their regular timetables.

To prioritise safety, our free travel period has been extended until Sunday 31 May.  Additionally, rear-door boarding has been implemented on all services state-wide until further notice.

Any passenger with an access challenge that restricts them from boarding from the rear door can still board and alight from the front door by asking their driver.

Greencards will remain free for the duration of our free travel period. Any passenger without a Greencard is encouraged to get one by signing up on the Metro Tasmania website, or by visiting a Metro Shop, depot or agent.

Supporting Students Through COVID 19

Supporting Students Through COVID 19

We are living through a really difficult time with social distancing and being isolated from friends and our support structures.  Many students may be feeling anxious about a range of things.

The Student Services Team will continue to offer support to Elizabeth College students during normal school hours. Outside of school hours and during school break students should use the external agencies listed below.

To make an appointment to speak with an EC counsellor students and parents can phone Sarah on 62356559 or email on sarah.newcombe@education.tas.gov.au during school hours.  All appointments are currently being conducted by phone or teleconference.
