Carpooling allows you to travel to Macquarie more sustainably and cheaply. You can also gain access to priority parking on campus if you apply for a carpool permit and meet the conditions.
Carpooling (also car-sharing, ride-sharing, and lift-sharing) is when a group of people commute together.
Having more than one person in a car reduces:
- fuel costs
- traffic congestion
- vehicle emissions, and
- is more sustainable.
- Save time - Skip the queues with access to T2 and T3 lanes when you share a ride to university.
- Save money - Share costs for petrol, tolls, and parking
- Cut stress - Share the traffic burden and get some time back in your day when you take it in turns to drive. Plus, meet new people and make new friends on campus!
- Reduce your carbon emissions
- Access to 'priority parking'
To get started, purchase a vPermit and apply for a carpool permit (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details)
