Location and Transport

Siena College is conveniently located at 815 Riversdale Road, Camberwell and is well serviced by public transport.

Buses

Siena College has four buses that are operated by Transdev Australia. The buses are on commercial routes like any other public bus except that they are for the exclusive use of Siena College students. Transdev Australia offers an extensive service throughout Doncaster, Templestowe and Balwyn suburbs. The buses collect and drop off Siena College students between Doncaster Shoppingtown and The Pines taking various routes along the way (route details are available below). Transdev Australia: Phone (03) 9488 2100 or visit transdevmelbourne.com.au

In addition, a regular and reliable PTV bus service operates in the eastern suburbs and covers the Camberwell area. Visit www.ptv.vic.gov.au.for details.

The College has recently added a private charter bus which covers the Doncaster/Blackburn area. This is a Quince’s bus which requires students to hold an ID card provided by the College. A myki card is not required for this service as it is a private charter heavily subsidised by the College. For more information on the charter bus, please contact community@siena.vic.edu.au.

Trams

Siena College is located on the Number 70 tram route (Waterfront City Docklands to Wattle Park) which travels down Riversdale Road. There is a tram stop right outside the College main entrance.
