I booked online and we went from our B&B to the airport and the service was prompt, efficient and the driver was very courteous. Can’t ask for more. I would use this service again. Much easier than the sky bus.


Melbourne Airport Shuttle

Operating 5am to 10pm everyday.

A terrific service.

They are easy to locate straight across from the arrivals terminal and I didn’t have to wait long for the bus to come. It’s a quick trip into the City and the drop offs at various hotels was like a mini tour. It’s really cost effective – a third of the taxi fare. The driver was courteous and friendly. I will definitely use the service on my next Melbourne trip

In Melbourne yesterday, I suddenly discovered that I had forgotten the time of my flight home to Adelaide. I had prepared for a flight after 4PM, at... a gentle pace (poor health demands it) ... my flight was scheduled for 2.40PM! It was my mistake! Realising a tram - Skybus combo would not be fast enough, I rang Starbus. They were able to pick me up about 15-20 minutes later. Despite having to pick up at 2 other spots, for which the driver expressed apology, I made it to the airport in good time in Starbus. I had prayed all the way that I would also be in time to board the flight... I did so! Miraculously, the queues were not long in the terminal.I am very pleased with Starbus and will use it again and recommend it to others. When taking the booking by phone, they made no promises about whether I would catch my flight, which was fair enough, given how late I had left the call. They did their bit well, but long queues would have ruined my day, so I was grateful for the "little miracle" that gave me such quick entry into the departure lounge. I even had time to get lost (being ill makes me dopey or easily flustered) and to ask for directions inside the terminal.Well done, Starbus!read more

It's my first time using the service of Starbus. I thank my friend for recommending it to me. Booking via their website was a very easy process. The... website's navigation is clear and straightforward.I booked my pick up at 10am. On the night before the pickup (very late at past 12 midnight), I realised to my horror I had made a mistake with timing. I actually needed to check in at 10am! I called the company and was relieved to have someone answer my call immediately. I requested for a change in time and it was done with a snap of the finger. The next day, it was an anxious wait. As the the change in time was done verbally via phone, I was not sure if this change was reflected in the system at all. I waited at my door half an hour before the new pick up time. The transport appeared 15 minutes before the actual time! I was totally relieved!!I thank the staff who attended the call line in the wee hour of the morning. And I thank the company for providing such excellent services!read more

My husband and I have both used this service several times, being transferred to and from the airport from South Yarra. Starbus have always been... punctual for us though it has been disappointing that some clients are VERY late and not ready at the designated time ... not the fault of Starbus but rather inconsiderate fellow travellers. A cost effective and convenient door to door service. I would recommend but please don’t keep other travellers waiting ... a minute or two is fine but 20 minutes is not!

Service was okay, I was picked up just a bit later than the pick-up window but still got to the airport on time. I have used this service before and... was pleased but this time I've been charged twice, through Pay-Pal and asked to pay with cash on the day. I have emailed twice about it but it's been almost a month without any reply. UPDATEPosting this review actually worked to get a reply, so thanks for that. I understand that Pay-Pal glitches and stuff. I didn't notice I got a reply here until today, so I just filled up the refund form. I will update when (if) I get a refund. In the meantime, I give this service 3 stars (would give 4, but it actually took them too long to reply that got me mad enough to write a long review...and then I even forgot about it)LAST UPDATEAfter many back and forth emails, Starbus gave me a voucher for a free service in lieu of the extra payment. I decided to change the rating to 4 stars because I have kept using this service and the last 3 rides have been on time and haven't had any problems with the payment methods. I think is a good option if you need to go to the city/inner suburbs, just make completely sure you have a copy of the more

This company is very efficient awesome customer service from the Airport and return several days later.I would highly recommend Starbus to everyone.I... had a booking with this company months ago and had to cancel hours before as we had experienced a home invasion 24 hours before flying and this company was the only people that refunded my money.That's compassion if ever I've experienced it.Thanks again Starbus we will certainly use you again and again.All the way from NZ.😀😀read more

I've been always choosing starbus to the airport. Door to door pick-up is really handy. One time I was the only passenger to get to CBD from airport,... they still service me quite good. Thanks!read more

Im using Starbus now for the second time. Came within the timeslot. Friendly driver. However, at the time of booking I was very clear about my... address with specific instructions on where I will be waiting. The person who took my booking got it completely wrong. Anyway, the driver rang me and we sorted it more

After reading the not so great reviews on this page i was rather skeptical about using this service on recent trip to Melbourne. I am so glad we... did...we were picked up about 15 minutes after calling when we arrived. Then on return trip the driver was waiting for us at our hotel right on time. I would recommend this service and will be defiantly using again. Thanks more

Have always used Starbus to shuttle between the airport and my accommodation at an inexpensive rate. I'd recommend to book (via call) only when... you've arrived at the airport. It doesn't take too long before you are confirmed a seat. It really depends on the driver you get but service has been satisfactory so more

Check Out Melbourne’s Top Attractions

Be sure to take a walk around Melbourne City to look at some of the most beautiful architecture in Australia while many Australian Cities have knocked down the grand buildings from yesteryear.

Melbourne also is the world renowned for its amazing coffee culture, make sure you check out all our hidden laneways with so many cafés, coffee varieties, and treats to tantalize your taste buds.

Another place to make sure you visit is Lygon St, Carlton, this originally was Melbourne’s little Italy but in recent years has grown to include culinary choices from all over the World. With 100’s of restaurants to choose from, a lively atmosphere, and the aroma of amazing food in the air, you just have to experience it for yourself to appreciate how good it is.

Melbourne’s Chinatown on Lt Bourke St is another must do for people who love food, with so many International Asian Students living in Melbourne the demand for real Asian food is substantial.
