Tassielink will run a single wheel-chair accessible coach between Queenstown and Burnie on Tuesday’s and Friday’s.

It will depart Queenstown railway station at 8.20am and arrive in Burnie at 11.10am.It will return from Burnie at 2.15pm arriving in Queenstown at 5.05.

The service is a $100,000 trial promised by the Hodgman Government.However West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers has said the council was left out of the process to create a route and meet community expectations.

He said the service will also promote expenditure outside the region.

Stops will be made a Rosebery, Tullah, Hampshire, Hichlere, Ridgley.

They willalso be made at Zeehan and Waratah on request.

The 12 month trial follows a similar attempt by Tassielink to provide a bus service back in 2002.That trial failed to receive widespread use and was discontinued bythe company.
