Carpooling

Carpooling offers low-cost campus parking if you travel to campus with at least one other carpooler. It's also a great way to meet new people and care for the environment. By reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles coming to campus, we'll reduce greenhouse emissions and reduce parking congestion on campus.

For semester 2 2019 we are offering carpoolers a choice in how they car pool.

Using the Liftango app carpoolers can dynamically match and rideshare with other Monash staff and students and park for free on campus in the blue areas.

Liftango will be live for staff and students from 22 July 2019. There is no need to prebook for this app.

Using the existing carpool permit carpoolers will need to purchase a permit for $40 for semester 2. These will be available to purchase from Monday 24 June for existing permit holders and from Monday 15 July for new users.

Carpooling parking areas

Carpoolers using the Liftango app or the carpool permit system may park in the blue areas. If you do not have a carpool partner on a day you come to campus then you will need to park in a ticket area and pay the relevant fee.
