Sustainable transport

Sustainable transport

RMIT focuses on supporting students and staff to use active transport for sustainability and wellbeing

Transport planning and initiaitives have been delivered on all campuses, guided by the RMIT Sustainable Transport Plan (2015-2025) (5.5 MB)

Public transport

RMIT is currently well served by public transport (trains, trams and buses) at the City, Bundoora and Brunswick campuses. RMIT University is a key interface point with Rail Projects Victoria for the delivery of the Metro Tunnel project. RMIT stands to benefit from the completion of Metro Tunnel, with an additional station planned adjacent to the City campus –providing more train services for staff, students and visitors and stronger connections between campuses.

For up to date travel information visit the Public Transport Victoria website.

These facilities include:

  • change facilities
  • showers
  • lockers
  • drying cupboards

Students and staff have automatic access to our secure bike parking facilities through their RMIT Security access card.
