SkyBus adds Southbank service
A new SkyBus service is starting in Melbourne this month


Starting on November 5, the new service will have a daily operation from 7am to 7pm with buses every 30 minutes on weekdays and hourly on weekends.

The Southbank Docklands Airport Express will have four pick up points within the Southbank and Docklands precincts including one at Harbour Esplanade, two stops on City Road and one on Whiteman Street.

SkyBus co-CEO and Director Michael Sewards says the new service will not only provide better connectivity for the wider Southbank and Docklands communities but provides a vital direct airport connection with Melbourne’s expanding convention and conference facilities and hinted that there is more to come.

"We are committed to develop and invest in further dedicated airport express services with
world class customer experience, high frequency, safety, affordability and convenience," he says.

"To achieve this, we will continue working closely with relevant stakeholders and partners to provide further expanded dedicated airport services to benefit the wider community.

The Southbank Docklands Airport Express is SkyBus’ sixth airport dedicated express
service launched in Victoria, and the third in the last year.

It joins other SkyBus airport express services from Southern Cross Station, St Kilda, Frankston, Avalon-Geelong and Avalon-City, as well as the Auckland SkyBus service in New Zealand.

Interstate and international passengers can now visit Crown Casino, Melbourne Convention
Centre, Eureka Tower, Etihad Stadium or the Melbourne Star directly from Melbourne
Airport with the new service.
