GoGet Car Share Scheme (Melbourne)

La Trobe University has partnered with GoGet to locate a number of car share scheme vehicles on the Melbourne campus. These vehicles are currently located in Car Park 3 and are available for private use by staff and students.

GoGet offers a range of membership options for staff and students and gives you all the benefits of a car, without the hassle and expense of owning one.

As a member, you have access to a network of new cars parked locally, including the cars located on the Melbourne campus, which can be leased by the hour or day.

Looking for La Trobe University's GoGet Fleet Vehicles? University staff can access the system through the intranet.
