Carpooling at Brunswick campus

To encourage ride sharing and reduce traffic and parking congestion, RMIT has launched an exciting carpooling option at Brunswick campus.

RMIT students and staff are encouraged to use the carpooling system to find other students and staff to share the ride to campus with. Those who successfully register for a car pooling permit together will be permitted to park in a designated free parking area on Brunswick campus.

How to apply

  1. Register online via EasyPark using your RMIT email address. You will need to create a new password that is eight characters long (this includes one capital letter and one number).
  2. Provide your address and contact details.
  3. Under ‘Apply for permits’, enter your vehicle registration number and continue.
  4. Below you should find an option for Brunswick carpooling with or without a ride partner.
  5. If you have a ride partner, in the comment field, provide the details of at least one more person who you intend to share the ride to campus with (please provide the full name and RMIT email address).
  6. If you do not have a partner and need help in finding others at RMIT who are looking for a partner please choose the ‘Request for help in finding a partner’.
  7. Your application will be reviewed by the parking administration and you will be notified by email of the result. Until receiving the response by email you do not have a valid permit. If approved you are allowed to park your vehicle in the designated carpooling area of the car park. Please see map of Brunswick campus (pdf, 248kb, 1p) for the designated location.
  8. By proceeding with your application you agree to the conditions.
  9. Download the Carpooling User Guide (docx, 1078kb, 4p) for detailed step-by-step help on how to apply for a permit.
