Deakin pool and share cars
Deakin has share cars located on campus, supplied by Flexicar.
The Flexicar service is very easy to use – once you’ve created an account online, you just need to book a car via the website or app. Then, simply collect the Flexicar from a designated park and commence your journey. The Flexicar must be returned to the car park where you picked it up. Learn more about Flexicar here.
At the Waterfront, Flexicar vehicles have partially replaced Deakin pool cars. They are the preferred option for staff business travel. There is more information on how to use the service below (see Deakin Pool Vehicles).

Deakin Pool Vehicles
For business travel, staff can reserve a Deakin pool vehicle through SmartFleet. Fill out the application form here and once approved you will receive information on how to log into the SmartFleet system and begin booking.
At the Waterfront, Flexicar share cars are the preferred option for staff business travel. Deakin fleet vehicles can be booked if no Flexicars are available. If you’re an existing SmartFleet user based at the Waterfront campus, you should have received an email invitation asking you to create a staff Flexicar account online. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or issues or have not received the invitation.
Staff can also use Flexicars for personal travel, by attaching a personal credit card number to their account.
