Deakin University Relaunches Campus-Wide Carpool Service Powered by Liftango

As campus attendance returns to pre-covid levels, this initiative is intended to alleviate vehicular congestion and offer a sustainable transport alternative.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - To strengthen its commitment to environmental sustainability and foster student connections, Deakin University has relaunched its carpool program in partnership with Global Carpooling and On-Demand Transport technology provider, Liftango.

Liftango’s commitment to sustainability includes offsetting 100% of carbon emissions from every carpool trip, which is being pioneered by their Climate-Positive Carpool Service.

This project was initially launched prior to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, restrictions placed on campus attendance, as part of safety protocols, resulted in decreased human and vehicular traffic on campus, rendering it ineffectual in that period.

With restrictions being eased, university authorities anticipate an upsurge in attendance levels. They are facilitating it with the re-introduction of this shared transport solution that will be implemented across Deakin University’s campuses in Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waurn Ponds, Geelong Waterfront, and Warrnambool.

Given how technologically advanced today's college students are, Liftango's Climate-Positive Carpool technology is the ideal option for implementing this initiative. 

The platform is integrated with modern features for convenience and faster matching for students and offers an operational dashboard for easier and more effective tracking and management by University staff.

Trystan Eeles, COO of Liftango said, "The whole team at Liftango is thrilled to support Deakin University with our carpool platform in 2023. Both the University and Liftango recognise the potential positive impact that an app-enabled carpooling program can have on campus life and emissions reduction, in particular during these times of increased cost of living pressures. When carpooling becomes a habit, a part of daily life, there are only positive outcomes and we're excited to see the program take off this year." 

To encourage patronage of this service across campuses, Deakin University is offering a free parking incentive - a strategy to ease accessibility and bolster the initiative's success.

Deakin University joins the growing list of climate-positive carpool partners currently serviced by Liftango. The list includes institutions like Unilever, Qantas, the University of British Columbia and the University of Warwick.
