BUS passengers will be left stranded for more than four hours on Thursday, after Metro Tasmania confirmed it would be unable to provide any services if drivers go ahead with a planned strike.
Metro chief executive officer Heather Haselgrove said passengers should check the company's website and Twitter feed for updates tomorrow night.
Bus drivers will vote on Metro's pay offer tomorrow afternoon and are expected to reject the 2 per cent a year pay rise offered by their employer.
They plan to stop work for four hours between 10am and 2pm.
Ms Haselgrove said services either side of the four-hour strike may also be affected.
"Metro does not know how many drivers will stop work if the industrial action goes ahead," Ms Haselgrove said. "To avoid any confusion that might leave passengers stranded, we're therefore advising customers that we're suspending all services across the state from 10am until 2pm on Thursday.
"We regret the inconvenience to passengers and suggest that where possible, people travel outside those times to ensure they get to their destination with minimal delays," she said.
She urged drivers to take the deal on the table, which she described as "fair and reasonable".
"In addition to the 2 per cent a year pay rise, we're also offering to compress current wage classifications so that all qualified drivers will achieve the highest pay level after being with us for three years."
