The replacement service will provide regular connections between Geelong and South Geelong Train Station and Avalon Airport, while the local Geelong operator, Geelong Taxi Network will work in partnership with SkyBus to provide onward connections to the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and Greater Geelong.

SkyBus is committed to filling the gap left by the previous provider, and giving travellers convenient and affordable transport between Geelong and Avalon Airport. From just $18 one way with free on board Wi-Fi.
