    Better than the cable car you don’t need. There’s a road, use it.

    Not sure what they are on about with this bus, its certainly does not appear to be a 4WD, unless they have this one as a fair weather unit. It appears to be a orible Higer, coming from a country with its name staring with ‘C’, most drivers avoid them like the plague, they are very basic (not much more than a very basic light truck, cart springs front and back, with a bus body dropped onto the chassis), rough to ride in, noisy engine up front beside the driver where the noise intrudes the passenger cabin. They certainly would not be an all-weather vehicle, that’s got me puzzled??

      Another purpose built bus for snow/ice conditions is on order and expected to start operating in May 2019 for the winter season.

    A good move by the Hobart City Council to up the safety initiative for keeping unfamiliar foreign drivers with hire cars off the Pinnacle Road.
    I just hope this does not mean restricting other traffic in the future.

    I would also point out the bus service is a far more effective service for visitor than propping up a Cable Car defacing the mountain.

      Look out for private vehicle restrictions and high parking costs.

      How else can a monopolist cable car gouge fees and charges?
