For some time, the Sorell Council has owned and operated a mini-bus service carrying people between its outlying residential areas (Dodges Ferry, Lewisham, Primrose Sands, Carlton Park Beach, etc) and into Sorell for shopping and business, or to catch mainstream public transport from Sorell to Hobart and back.
Early in 2018 the Council decided this was not core Council business, and let out a tender for an operator to continue the service. CTST won that tender, and is now operating the service, continuing the two-days-a-week provision that Council had established. This service is contracted to operate for two years.
Initially this is a fixed-timetable, fixed-route service. However, as we develop and refine it in response to customer feedback, we hope to be able to make it more flexible and responsive to people’s varying needs and circumstances.
