Shuttle buses operate between the Hobart CBD (accommodation hotels, motels etc.) and the airport for every departure. The shuttle departs outside the terminal after the arrival of every flight transferring passengers to the city. For information and bookings, contact Tasmanian Redline Coaches who also operate coach services to all other major centres throughout Tasmania. The Airport is serviced by a number of taxi firms. The Taxi rank is located right outside the domestic terminal building. Limousines and chauffeured cars are also available. A number of Car Rental companies operate from the Airport.

Tourist Services:
The Hobart Explorer - a bus dressed up to look like a tram - takes visitors to all the city���s major attractions. You can hop on and off where you wish and the ticket is valid all day. Tickets are available at the Travel & Information Centre at the corner of Elizabeth and Davey streets.
A similar service operates in Launceston. Tickets are available from the Tasmanian Travel Centre.
