There are several ways to get to Bendigo South East College: walking, riding, by bus or car. For those families that reside within the Bendigo Township, the Public Transport system will allow for you to attend BSE. The Country School bus system is for those families that reside outside of the Bendigo township. For more information about times and to apply for bus travel please see below.
For those families that reside within the Bendigo Public Transport System area, this will allow for you to travel to BSE whether by regular timetabled services or School Town Specials.
