Get to Uni using sustainable transport

At La Trobe we encourage sustainable transport options such as walking, cycling, public transport and carpooling.

All campus public transport options listed below.

Melbourne Campus (Bundoora)

Using public transport instead of driving to university can save you money. You can also save time by studying while you commute.

There’s even a bus specifically for the La Trobe community: the Glider travels around the Melbourne campus, making it quicker and safer to get around.
