Pool vehicle charges are capped to compete with alternative means of travel i.e. hire vehicles or taxis. This system, combined with the convenience of local pick-up and drop-off points on each campus, means pool vehicles provide a cost-effective means of travel.
Hourly: $7.76 (pro-rata basis applies), plus 60 cents per kilometre. These charges are reviewed annually and may be increased to align with the National Consumer Price Index.
Daily: the maximum daily charge is currently capped at $120, regardless of the number of km travelled. For example, a return trip to Bunbury completed in one day would cost no more than $120.
FBT charges may be payable by the School or Centre when staff (not students) home garage an ECU vehicle. A vehicle garaged at home, at a motel or hotel, is considered to be available for private use, regardless of whether it is actually being used privately.
This is assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine if the usage will attract FBT.
Generally FBT costs do not apply to hire cars if those cars are used 100% of the time to conduct University business. In some instances, it may therefore be cheaper to hire a vehicle. This particularly applies to long distance trips by drivers who infrequently home garage a vehicle.
