Development of a Green Travel Plan for Bundoora Campus
RMIT generates significant travel with 50,000 staff and students travelling almost every day for work and study which affects the social, environmental and economic wellbeing of these communities. One of the key actions in RMIT’s Sustainability Action Plan is to provide opportunities for more sustainable transport for staff and students.
In this proposed project, students will conduct a study on various issues around the subject of staff and student travel, e.g. policy context, current situation and future projections, existing and future road/transport networks, etc., with a focus on Bundoora Campus The project aims to provide a framework that enables and motivates more staff and students to walk, ride and use public transport for work and study related travel.
