A great way to get to Melbourne airport and for a reasonable price. Shame they don't have suburban lines operating later in the evening. Hopefully we'll see a train line to the airport within the next 100 years 😖

Sky bus is very efficient and best option for no hassle transport from City to Airport. Great frequency and price. Staff are always obliging.

Costly as compare to uber and not even dropping to exact location. They have specific start and drop point. In fact the ticket booking lady is not helpful

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Id say skybus is cheaper...online you can buy return ticket, 2 adults 4 children for $70, thats airport to city hotel plus city hotel to airport. There is no way a taxi would be cheaper than $35 one way.
