SkyBus has launched a new direct service connecting passengers in Southbank and Docklands to Melbourne Airport
SkyBus has launched a new direct service connecting passengers in Southbank and Docklands to Melbourne Airport.
The new service has a daily operation from 7am to 7pm with buses every 30 minutes on weekdays and hourly on weekends, and started on November 5.
The Southbank Docklands Airport Express will have four pickup 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 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.
