Shuttle Bus Services from Macleod and Reservoir Station
This year, 2012, the La Trobe Student Union is lobbying the university to make improvements to accessibility and diversity of public transport across the board.
The LTSU believes that the provision of frequent shuttle buses to Macleod and Reservoir stations is an important and relatively low-cost measure which can be taken to improve accessibility to rail transport, and to relieve pressure upon the parking and tram systems.
Shuttle buses are already provided effectively by a number of other universities in Melbourne, and it is time that La Trobe moved decisively to improve the poor standard of public transport at the Bundoora Campus.

Improving Cycling Facilities
The condition of cycling facilities at La Trobe University has been too low for too long. Often cyclists who arrive on campus will not be able to find adequate or secure shelter for the their bikes, and are frustrated by the general lack of other facilities and support.
Only 2% of students currently cycle to university, far fewer than those who live close enough to do so. The La Trobe Student Union believes that the University must do more to improve the quality of facilities for cyclists, and attract more students to choose to ride to university.
This is also in the interests of students for whom riding is not a viable option, as increased cycling will reduce pressure on the parking and tram systems.
