Carpooling

The Victorian State Government recently announced all carpooling activities are to be suspended under restricted physical distancing guidelines, effective from Monday 7 September.

As a result of this arrangement, carpooling using Liftango at Monash University will be suspended until further notice. The Liftango app will not be available during this period to assist with ridematching.

Parking continues to be free for all students and staff in blue and red permit areas, and you must use the CellOPark app to register your free parking. For more information about how to register an account and use the CellOPark app can be found on the PAYU webpage.

For up-to-date Monash information regarding COVID-19, please visit our dedicated website and fact sheet.

If you travel to campus with at least one other passenger, you can access low-cost parking on campus using the Liftango and CellOPark apps.

Carpooling is a great way to 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.

Carpooling parking areas and payment

Carpoolers using the Liftango and CellOPark apps may park in any Blue permit area. On days you do not have a passenger you can still park in the Blue permit areas but will need to use the relevant Blue permit code and pay the relevant fee.
