Carshare and Pool vehicles

Car sharing is a cost effective and simple alternative to owning a vehicle, especially if you drive infrequently. We have Flexicar and GoGet carshare vehicles located across our Caulfield, Parkville and Clayton campuses.

Each carshare company website has maps showing the exact locations and details of each vehicle. The table below lists where carshare vehicles are available across our campuses.

For more information and to make a booking, please visit the Flexicar or GoGet websites.

Monash has a fleet of pool vehicles which staff are able to book for business use. All pool vehicles are four-door Holden Cruze hatchbacks with automatic transmission.

The cost of hiring a pool vehicle is $8.50 per hour or $65 per day, plus 28 cents per kilometre travelled. The cost will be charged monthly to your Cost Centre and Fund.
