Car pooling

We are proud to partner with Carpool the West, an online program that helps match drivers and passengers to their specific needs. 


Carpool the West is free to join and makes it easy to find drivers and passengers.

Who can join

Anyone in the area can join. You can choose to drive with people from VU or from other organisations in the area. You can still carpool if you don’t own a car – simply share the cost of parking and fuel with your driver.


You still need to pay for parking as usual if you join Carpool the West.

By the end of February 2017 you'll see designated car parking spaces for registered participants at our Footscray Park campus, they'll be signposted and painted with the Carpool the West logo. Keep an eye out for them and make sure you only park there if you are a registered participant, fines will apply otherwise.
