Airbus Express Review
The Airbus Express is a cheap way to get from the Airport to Auckland and back. The airport is located about 25km northwest of downtown Melbourne so a single person will definitely save money by taking the Skybus instead of a cab. The Skybus costs $15 NZD one way or $22 return and departs every 15 minutes. It picks you up at the airport and 40-50 minutes later it reaches the ferry terminal in downtown Auckland. The bus has six major stops at certain hotels and attractions and runs down Queenstreet while in downtown Auckland.
The buses in the Airbus Express fleet are new and very clean. There is lots of room for any type of luggage you may have, whether it is a large suitcase or a surfboard. The seats are typical transit bus seats and there is standing room in case the bus gets full. The windows are not obstructed by any sort of advertising so you will get a nice view of Auckland.
