At two of the Deakin University campuses, Nadine snapped a few photos of some great bike amenities. At the Waurn Ponds Deakin Campus, amenities near the campus are bike friendly. Nadine shared that are bike lanes on the roads leading to campus. A bike-friendly bike shuttle is another way bicyclist can get home if they are in need of a ride.
There's also a transit hub on campus. A transit hub is where folks can transfer from one transportation mode to another. Think a bus stop near a parking garage, or subway stops at an airport. This makes it easier for folks to make connections between a car and a bus, or a bike and a bus, for example. Here's a photo of the Tranit Lounge at the Transit Hub at the Waurn Ponds Deakin campus.
At the Waurn Ponds Deakin Campus transit hub, there is a special area for bicyclist commuters. Inside the Hub, there’s a changing room, showers, lockers, bike racks and other amenities for bicyclists.
The showers are behind doors which provide privacy and space for changing.
The cabinet by the sink even has an iron and ironing board to get at those minor wrinkles that may have settled in during your commute.
While you ponder those thoughts, I'll share some more about Australia in an upcoming post. Stay tuned!
