Commuter Vehicle

AIMS@JCU provides a vehicle which travels between JCU and AIMS on a daily basis. This facility is available and free for all AIMS@JCU members, making the commute more cost-effective for students and occasionally staff who wish to use the facilities at AIMS. This is likely to increase to two vehicles in the near future as AIMS@JCU supported student numbers increase.

Please read the AIMS@JCU policy and procedures and log-in here to book a place in the vehicle.

The van is located just outside the gated compound off to the side of building DC061 and leaves JCU at 7:30am (see map here).  It departs AIMS to return to JCU at 4:40pm.   The vehicle cannot travel to AIMS without a registered driver.

If you would like to be added as a driver of the AIMS@JCU Commuter Vehicle, please follow these instructions:

In order to keep our safety policies up to date and in line with AIMS and JCU policies, you must read the vehicle policy and procedure documents provided by the AIMS@JCU office, as well as complete the ‘2015 Driver Agreement document’ confirming that you satisfy our driving criteria.  The prerequisites required are defined by whether or not you have an open, QLD licence valid for at least three years:

  • If you have an open, QLD licence which has been valid for at least 3 years, you must complete a driving induction at AIMS (let the AIMS@JCU office know if this is the case and we can organise an induction for you).  Prior to the induction, please watch the AIMS Induction video http://intranet.aims.gov.au/transport, log into:  AIMSCAPE – SERVICES – TRANSPORT,  and complete the attached “Requirements to Drive” form.
  • If you do not have an open QLD licence or your QLD licence has not been valid for 3 years, then you will be required to undertake a driving competency test (paid for by AIMS@JCU) at your convenience.  Please contact Pat Young at Young’s Driving School on 0402 094 958 to organise a time which is best for you.  Take your licence along with you and let them know that AIMS@JCU are paying for your test.  You must also complete a driving induction at AIMS which the AIMS@JCU office will organise for you upon receipt of your competency test confirmation from Young’s Driving School.  Prior to the induction, please watch the AIMS Induction video http://intranet.aims.gov.au/transport, log into:  AIMSCAPE – SERVICES – TRANSPORT,  and complete the attached “Requirements to Drive” form.
  • If you have completed the AIMS driving competency requirements, please let the AIMS@JCU office know and we will contact AIMS for confirmation.

Log-sheets are to be filled in by the driver for each trip and sent with receipts to the AIMS@JCU office whenever they are full.  The log-sheet template can be downloaded here.
