How to get to the city centre of Melbourne from the airport

By car, the journey from Melbourne Airport to the city centre is about 30 minutes, so you may want to hail a taxi when you arrive. Taxis are not that cheap, so you may prefer to book a journey through a ride-share app instead. The taxi rank can be found in front of the terminal building, opposite the arrivals hall. There are also two bus services that operate the route to the city. The SkyBus is the more convenient of the two and takes around 45 minutes to reach the city centre, however it is more expensive than the number 901 bus, which will take you to Broadmeadows station, where you can transfer to a train to the centre of Melbourne. This takes about 40 minutes and is cheaper but requires changing during your journey.
