SkyBus adds new Frankston to Melbourne Airport route
The cat’s out of the bag! SkyBus adds new Frankston to Melbourne Airport route. The big red SkyBus now being seen along the Nepean Highway.
Following sightings of SkyBus’ distinctive red vehicles along the Nepean Highway, operators of Melbourne’s express CBD to airport transport service today announced that it has taken over the Frankston and Peninsula Airport Shuttle (FAPAS) route between Melbourne Airport and the bayside suburb of Frankston.
Customers travelling on this route can now enjoy some of the much-loved SkyBus perks including Free Wi-Fi, customer support and corporate rates.
SkyBus can also reveal that over the next few months residents of Frankston can expect to see continuous improvements to the service, as SkyBus introduces more benefits such as its ‘Kids Travel Free’ policy, online ticket purchasing, smartphone ticketing access, and most importantly, a significant increase in reliability and services.
Adam Begg, Director of SkyBus, said the operator is delighted to be expanding on its existing routes and providing an improved service for Frankston and surrounding suburb residents in connecting them to Melbourne Airport.
SkyBus has made this announcement after several customer enquiries about seeing the big red vehicles in Frankston, seemingly way off-route.
The State Member for Frankston, Paul Edbrooke MP, echoed these sentiments and the importance of mass transport services for the Melbourne population.
A SkyBus journey from Frankston to Tullamarine Airport will cost $38 one-way, compared to a taxi, which could cost up to $157.
The addition of this new SkyBus route follows the announcement in April of the new St Kilda Airport Express service, due to commence services this winter.
