Carpooling

For the ANU community to provide support and assistance to each other, the University has signed an agreement with carpool app Liftandgo.  To register in Liftandgo as a passenger that needs a lift or as a driver who can offer a lift, please download the app from their relevant app store (Apple Store or Google Play Store) and register. 

Carpooling is 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.
