I took train from home to Southern Cross Station and then got on the bus to the airport, so much cheaper than getting a taxi and better than having someone drive me to the airport, price is so much cheaper than a taxi

Arrived after midnight in Melbourne and the SkyBus was recommended. The desk in our terminal was closed so assumed that you would be able to buy tickets on the bus. However when the bus arrived you had to have a ticket which would still be available at Terminal 1. Half an hour later with the required tickets we boarded the bus and traveled into Melbourne. This service was more than acceptable for getting from the airport to the city but better access to ticketing at all hours and clear signage that tickets are required prior to boarding.

Simple way of travelling from Airport to City, located easily from Airport and very reliable transport

Great way to get to Melbourne airport or to Melbourne city from the airport. Though the price of a ticket has been steadily increasing it is the cheapest and best way to travel
Transport runs 24hrs and now has a number of destinations. There is also included a shuttle service to your hotels from Southern Cross station for free but between certain hours

Given how poor the metropolitan public transport is on Sunday mornings (late starts, and 40-60 minute frequencies) I had some concerns about airport travel. However, once I reached the city, the Skybus was running every 10 minutes to the airport. I walked straight to the bus queue, had my ticket scanned, and got on the bus. 25 minutes later I was at the airport.
