Tiger Bus commuter service to move to new Northern Car Park
Published on 26 October 2021
The City of Launceston's free Tiger Bus service will see changes for commuter parking from early next month.
All-day parking for Tiger Bus permit holders will switch from the Circle Car Park at Inveresk to the new Northern Car Park, off Forster Street, from Monday, November 15.
The Tiger Bus stop for commuters will also move to the new Northern Car Park, while the temporary stop on Invermay Road will no longer be used for this service.
City of Launceston Mayor Albert van Zetten said the move to relocate Tiger Bus commuter parking to the Northern Car Park will free up parking for short-term users of the Inveresk site.
"It's important that we can still cater for people who want to use those facilities around Inveresk, such as the Tramsheds, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and Blue Cafe," Mayor van Zetten said.
"It will mean a slightly longer commute of perhaps a minute for all-day parking in the new Northern Car Park, but the Tiger Bus will still pick you up from your vehicle and bring you into town each day so the change will be very minimal.
"The Council believes this service is exceptional value for money for anyone who needs to park for long periods of time - particularly those people who work in the CBD.
"There's a plethora of parking available in this wonderful new facility at the northern end of the Inveresk precinct and I would encourage anyone who is looking for hassle-free parking to use the Northern Car Park and take advantage of the free Tiger Bus service into the CBD - or as the weather warms, enjoy a leisurely stroll into the City."
