    I'm coming to Ballarat to study. Can anyone give me an idea of how convenient it is to get around the city by bus, how safe , how costly it is and whether the buses are regular and timely. I'm trying to decide between staying on campus (mt helen) or in off campus acco . I like solitude but I'd also want to be able to travel into town easily, especially on weekends. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks.
