     1. The Most Convenient Option – Skybus

    The Skybus service is a 24/7 shuttle that runs to and from the Coach Terminal at Southern Cross Station, which is located on Spencer Street in the Central Business District. There are two locations at the airport where you can be picked up by the shuttle – either next to the Virgin Australia terminal or the Qantas/Jetstar domestic terminal. To purchase tickets, you can approach the ticket desks at T1, T3 and T4, purchase tickets electronically from the driver or book from official website (https://www.skybus.com.au). The trip to the CBD will only take around 30 minutes and it will cost $22 for a one-way journey or $36 for a return. The shuttles will depart every 15 minutes.

    2. The Cheapest Option – Public Transport Victoria

    This is a slower, but much cheaper option to get from the airport to downtown Melbourne, which will cost you $10 on weekdays and $7.20 on weekends. Go to the Skybus terminal and buy a Myki Card. Exit the terminal and walk across the first road, turning left and walking to the end of the platform at T1. Catch the bus number 901 to Broadmeadows Station. The sign on the bus should say “Frankston”. At the Broadmeadows Station, switch to a train. It is also possible to catch the bus to Essendon, Moonee Ponds and Sunbury.

    3. The Fastest Option: Taxi

    Probably the quickest way to get from the airport directly to your hotel is to jump in a taxicab. It will leave as soon as you are ready and drive you exactly where you want to go. You can catch a taxi from the designated taxi ranks at the airport, which are located on the ground floor outside Terminal 1 and between Terminals 3 and 2. The price from Melbourne airport to city center is about $60.
