New Vic SkyBus airport service

SkyBus to run a new bus service direct from St Kilda to Melbourne Airport

Melbourne’s inner-bayside residents will no longer have to travel to the CBD to catch the SkyBus to the airport.

SkyBus announced the launch of a new high-frequency bus service from St Kilda to Melbourne Airport recently.

The organisation has now taken over the route that was managed by Frankston and Peninsula Airport Shuttle, and SkyBus will significantly increase the frequency of services, with departures leaving St Kilda every 30 minutes from 6.30am until 7.30pm, seven days a week.

"We are excited to bring our vehicles to St Kilda and offer both locals and travellers an outstanding service," SkyBus director Michael Sewards says.

"This new offering makes traveling from the airport to the unique and iconic St Kilda area even more cost effective and accessible than ever before.

"The route is more direct and will offer the amenities that our customers have come to expect and appreciate about SkyBus.

"We are proud of the services we provide to travellers coming in and out of Melbourne and this new service only enhances our offerings and traveller’s experiences."

Adult one-way fares between St Kilda and Melbourne Airport will be $19, with return trips costing $38.

St Kilda and Port Phillip Bay are popular destinations among travellers and Sewards says it makes sense to provide a direct service that eliminates the need for people to travel to the CBD first in order to get there.

The new SkyBus service from St Kilda to Melbourne Airport will commence within the next few months.
