SkyBus is transporting Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre “meet and greet” volunteers to and from Hobart Airport for free.

SkyBus co-director Michael Sewards said the volunteers performed an important role for tourism in Southern Tasmania.

“The volunteers, in their distinctive pink vests, donate their time each day to helping out tourists at the airport on behalf of the Tourism community,” Mr Sewards said.

“For SkyBus it was an easy decision to offer all the volunteers free transport to and from Hobart airport to make their task and effort so much easier.”

Emily Hopwood, Tourism Services Manager said the assistance was welcome.

“Our volunteers perform an invaluable role providing a warm and friendly welcome to visitors to Tasmania – from interstate and internationally – and helping them source information about what they can see and do when they arrive in Hobart.

“The Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre provides a Statewide visitor information service and our volunteers have great local knowledge to answer visitor questions about what to see and experience anywhere in Tasmania.

“We appreciate the support of SkyBus and Hobart Airport to help make the welcome to Hobart an exceptional one.”

The Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre is proudly owned and operated by the City of Hobart.
