Tender for Cradle shuttle service

01/05/2017

A tender to provide the shuttle bus service to Dove Lake at Cradle Mountain is being advertised.


Cradle Mountain is a Tasmanian tourism icon, as is the stunning view of the mountain at Dove Lake.


The current shuttle service at Cradle Mountain has been very effective in reducing the traffic congrestion on the Dove Lake Road, providing safe, reliable and comfortable travel from the visitor centre to Dove Lake.


As part of the currnet Cradle Mountain Master Plan, alternative transport systems, including a cable way, will be investigated. However, it's expected that any new bus service will be in place for at least five years, even if an alternative system is found to be more beneficial in managing the visitor experience and protecting the environment.


The tender documents are available at https://www.tenders.gtas.gov.au/. It is expected that a new contract shuttle bus service would start on 1 July 2018.
