Transport (sustainable operations at AUT)

Students and staff can join AUT’s mission towards sustainable practices by choosing to walk, take public transport, use the AUT shuttle bus, or cycle.

AUT travel plan

To encourage sustainable transport options AUT has implemented a travel plan for students and staff travelling to and from AUT.

AUT’s travel plan covers all three campuses. It identifies an action list we can implement across:

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Parking
  • Motorbiking
  • Using public transport
  • Using AUT shuttles
  • Smart mobility

Most full time tertiary students are eligible for a tertiary student concession, which gives you discounted travel on public buses, trains and ferries with an AT HOP card.

AUT’s fleet vehicles

Our fleet vehicles were replaced by more fuel efficient standard models in 2012 and 2013.

AUT is completing a fleet audit in 2016 to investigate fleet optimisation and review the potential for including electric vehicles in the fleet. The audit is partially funded by the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority.

Staff use our fleet vehicles for business purposes external to AUT. When travelling between AUT campuses, staff are encouraged to use the AUT shuttle to help minimise emissions.
