How To Get From Melbourne Airport To The City
Now that your plane has finally landed at the Melbourne Airport, you need to find a way to reach the city center. The airport is around 22 kms away from the Central Business District of Melbourne, so its not very easy to travel across, though there are a number of options you can use to reach the city center from the airport. Here at OneHowTo.com, we are going to tell you how to get from Melbourne airport to the city.
Skybus is a shuttle service that runs between the Melbourne Airport and the Coach Terminal of Southern Cross Station, Spencer Street and the Central Business District of the city. You can pick up a Skybus 24/7 from the Virgin Australia terminal, or Qantas/Jetstar domestic terminal of the Melbourne airport. Its ticket desks are available at T1 and T3. You can purchase the tickets from here, or electronically from the Skybus driver. You can reach the CBD within 20 minutes, and it costs $18 for one-way, and $30 for a return trip. A Skybus departs from the airport every 10 minutes, except from 1am to 4am, when a Skybus leaves every 30 minutes.
