How to get around Hobart
Getting around Hobart CBD in a hire car can be tedious, as parking is hard to find and often expensive. In most cases, the best option will be to walk or catch a taxi. Many local taxi services operate in Hobart and can be hailed in person or booked over the phone.
Hobart public transport is efficient during the day but largely unavailable on weekends and on weeknights. You can use the Hobart public transport app (Metro Tas App), Metro website, or Metro hotline to plan your journey. Once you're on the bus, you can pay your fare using a Greencard or cash.
Walking Hobart is a great option as just about everything is close together – and you won't miss any of the charming alleys or cafes! Hobart CBD is small enough to cover on foot and you can easily walk from the CBD to Salamanca Place, Battery Point, and the waterfront without getting too tired.
