Route Information

Cressy/Longford  

Slight decrease in the number of weekday services to Cressy/Longford, which is off-set by a slight increase in Saturday services and provision of new Sunday services. Travel time for Cressy/Longford passengers will reduced by up to 15 minutes as the route will no longer travel via Evandale and the route through Perth will be made more direct.


Evandale  

Similar number of services to Evandale, including the provision of new Sunday services. The route to and from Evandale will change, with Evandale to be serviced via Perth on the Perth Mill Road. The route will no longer travel via the Launceston Airport (Evandale Road).


Perth  

Increase in the number of services to Perth, particularly on Saturdays and Sundays. Perth will be serviced by multiple routes, including from St Helens and Hobart. The route through Perth will be made more direct, with services to travel along the Perth Main Road. New bus stops will be constructed to support this change including near the intersection of Main Road and Phillip Street.

  • More information on bus stop locations in Perth is available here.
  • Due to the temporary closure of Haggerstone Rd (old Midway Highway) northbound Tassielink services will not be able to stop at Devon Hills. More information is available here.
  • Once the Perth bypass is constructed the route will no longer be able to travel via Drummond Street.


The majority of Cressy/Longford and Evandale/Perth services will travel via the Kings Meadows corridor - which means that any passenger can get on and off the bus on this corridor. This change will increase the number of services along this important urban corridor.


Services will start and finish at St Johns Street in Launceston as opposed to the Cornwall Square Transit Centre. The pickup stop in St John Street will be stop A1 .
