A major source of ACU’s operations environmental impact is the commuting to and from campus by staff and students, and between campuses, particularly for staff. Air travel aside, the least sustainable transport mode is single-occupant car travel.

Active forms of transport such as cycling and walking, or public transport, or car-sharing, produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants per-person than travelling alone in a car and walking and cycling will increase your physical activity and improve your health.

ACU helps students and staff to choose more sustainable modes of transport by:

  • Providing of end-of-trip facilities such as bike lock up points, lockers and showers on campus
  • Conducting student and staff commuter surveys to better understand how staff and students choose to travel to University
  • Provision of videoconferencing, teleconferencing and virtual meeting capabilities to staff, to provide an alternative to inter-campus travel

To find where on campus you can lock-up your bike, find a locker or take a shower at the end of your active-transport trip, see your Campus’s Student Amenity Map:
