Inter-campus shuttle bus

Campus Shuttle

Regular, free shuttle buses (with free wi-fi) link our Clayton campus with our Berwick, Caulfield and Peninsula campuses, and our Peninsula campus to Frankston Railway Station. Just show your valid Monash student or staff card to use the service, which also accepts children, aged under four.

You board on a 'first-come, first-served' basis. Buses fill quickly at busy times, so don't be late if you want a seat.

Upgrade works to transform the Clayton Bus Loop into the new Monash Transport Interchange are now in their final stages. As a result, there have been some changes to the location of bus services. Visit the Monash Transport Interchange webpage for more information or check the Clayton Bus Loop Map (PDF, 0.11 MB) for new bus stop locations.
