Our Melbourne City Express service will continue to operate, however from Sunday 5 April 2020 the service will operate between 6am and 6pm only. Buses will depart every 15 minutes, on demand. Ticket purchases will need to be made from our self-serve kiosks located at Melbourne Airport and Southern Cross Station, using card payments only.

Fixed price fares give you peace of mind. SkyBus Melbourne City Express is great value for money at only $19.75 one way for an Adult fare. Buy a round trip for even more savings!
