The Federal Government is spending more than $200,000 to help revitalise Hobart's inner city and encourage more people to use public transport.
The money has been allocated under the Government's Liveable Cities program.
The State Government's been allocated $110,000 to assess potential uses for the Macquarie Point Railyards, which will relocate to a new transport hub at Brighton north of Hobart later this year.
The study will look at a number of options for the 8.4 hectare site, including affordable housing and cultural and tourism developments.
Tasmanian Labor Senator Carol Brown says another $125,000 will be spent on a plan to overhaul public transport.
"There are the challenges of climate change, a lack of affordable housing, traffic congestion."
Hobart has one of the lowest rates of public transport use in the nation.
