During semester a free hail and ride service also operates on weeknights providing a safe and convenient means of transportation around the Bentley campus, including student housing villages.

The service is available between 6pm and 2am, ring the Safer Community Team on 9266 4444 to request this service.

  • Service runs during normal semester weeks and examination weeks
