What is Liftango?
Liftango is a new ridesharing app available exclusively for students and staff members at the University of Canberra. The Liftango app aims to match riders (passengers) with drivers to make ridesharing easy and rewarding. The app supports you throughout the entire pick-up and drop-off process and gives you the flexibility to rideshare on the days and times that best suit you.
Why is the University of Canberra rolling out a Ridesharing app service?
Based on travel and parking surveys, we know that many students and staff members are interested in ridesharing. Ridesharing has been identified by the University of Canberra as one of a few ways we can reduce private vehicle trips to our busy sites and promote more sustainable transport. This initiative aims to address that by reducing the number of cars coming to our sites, reducing the demand for parking spaces.
Why should I Rideshare using Liftango?
Ridesharing could save you money and time, reduce stress associated with finding a car park and help you meet other students and staff. Ridesharing is good for the whole community; reducing traffic congestion, improving road safety, improving air quality, improving public amenity and reducing impacts of climate change. For ridesharing, the University of Canberra and Liftango believe that you should also be rewarded, so exclusive parking spaces are provided at the campus. Further to that, drivers and riders, may be eligible to receive fuel/grocery vouchers from time to time.
