Skybus Melbourne City Express
Wheelchair Access Information
The Melbourne City Express Skybus is an excellent option for those looking for wheelchair accessible transport to and from Melbourne Airport. The Melbourne City Express Skybus runs shuttles from Melbourne Airport To Southern Cross Station in the heart of Melbourne CBD, and return. This accessible fleet runs every 10 minutes 24 hours a day 7 days a week, with all buses on the fleet being wheelchair accessible via a ramp at the front of the bus and with assigned wheelchairs seating towards the front.
Each bus has a luggage storage area where luggage is stored out of the way and safe during transit.
The Skybus accepts the companion card for carers. Companion tickets can not be purchased online, so cardholders must visit the service desk and show their card to receive a companion ticket. Nevertheless, the wheelchair guest can still purchase their ticket online and then ask for a companion ticket at the service desk on the day of travel.
SkyBus also offers a free Melbourne city hotel shuttle from 6:30am to 8pm daily. The free hotel shuttle bus is wheelchair accessible, but they ask wheelchair passengers to inform them 24 hours before travel if they plan to use the free hotel shuttle service. The hotel shuttle takes guests to selected hotels throughout Melbourne CBD. click here for hotel list.
The Skybus Melbourne also runs wheelchair accessible Airport shuttle fleets to Southbank Docklands and St Kilda. I believe the Peninsula Express and Western Express shuttles have an accessible option, but you must contact them for these services before travel to arrange access.
In my opinion I give the Skybus Melbourne City Express a rating of 4.5 for wheelchair accessibility, and a rating of 4.5 stars for the overall service.
