Leave the car at home! How to save time and money as you travel to campus

How are you planning to travel to campus this study period? 

Driving isn’t the only choice – there’s lots of convenient transport options available that will help to make our campuses more sustainable, and save you money, time and hassle. You’ll also enjoy added benefits like more incidental physical activity and extra time to read, listen to music or just unwind.

Here are some ways to ditch the car and still make it to class!

Public transport

Check out Public Transport Victoria (PTV) to plan your journey. If you’re an international student, you can also save 50% on fares across Victoria.

Geelong intercampus buses

Two dedicated Deakin buses service our Geelong campuses – and they’re completely free! Wi-fi is available on both services, so you can scroll your news feed or study while you travel.

Active transport

Our beautifully green campuses are best experienced on foot or two wheels, so walk or ride if you live close to campus. We have showers, change rooms, lockers and bike hubs available on all campuses.

Still need to drive?

If these other transport options don’t suit your circumstances, parking is available at all our campuses, including accessible parking:

You can share the costs and hassle of driving by carpooling to campus! The Liftango app matches drivers and passengers who share similar journeys to and from Deakin. It’s free to join, and you’ll be rewarded with an easier commute and free parking on our campuses (including in orange bays).

Visit our transport websites for Burwood, Waurn Ponds, Waterfront and Warrnambool for more detailed information about getting to your campus.
