Update 22 December 2017
Please note, the trial for Campus Traveller has finished and the service will not run over the New Year period. A decision on the continuation of this service will be made in late January.
As of Monday 18 September, ANU staff, students and visitors will be able to use a free shuttle bus service, the ‘Campus Traveller’ to bring them closer to their destination on Acton campus. The free Campus Traveller will follow a regular route around campus, passing major car parks. This gives you the option to park where ever you can find an available car bay and catch a bus to your classroom or office.
In addition, the Campus Traveller will also pick you up from the Lindsay Pryor Car Park near the National Arboretum. The Lindsay Pryor Car Park is free and you don’t need an ANU parking permit to ride the Campus Traveller.
The Campus Traveller service will operate on a loop between ANU and the Lindsay Pryor Car Park between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
The services will run from Lindsay Pryor from 8am, 8:30am, 9am, 9:30am, 10am, and 12pm, 1pm, 4pm, 4:30pm, 5pm, and 5:30pm from the campus to Lindsay Pryor.
The bus will start at the Lindsay Pryor Car Park (free parking with around 60 parking spaces) and loop on campus passing major carparks, so the users of this service can choose to be dropped off to their preferred location. For those who park some distance from the buildings they use or work in, the bus will follow a regular route around campus so the users will be able to use it to get closer to their destination.
The bus can also be tracked via the ANUOK app (iTunes and Google play), which will allow you to see how far the bus is from your location. Simply hail enroute for a lift.
We are trialling the Campus Traveller for two months. During this time we hope to receive valuable feedback to allow us to improve the service. Campus Traveller is just one of the many solutions we will be implementing to make campus transport enjoyable for all at ANU.
If you have any questions about Campus Traveller, or wish to provide feedback, please email the ANU Parking office.
