This is the cheapest way to get into the city unless you're sharing a cab, and they provide a door-to-door service to all city accommodation areas and places en route. Coaches are air conditioned with luggage stored in trailers, servicing all domestic and international flight arrivals and departures at the airport 24 hours a day. If notified they also make transfers to and from the light aircraft terminal. Tickets are currently $9.50 pp one way or $17 pp return with discounts for groups of three or more. Purchase tickets from the driver or the Transit centre in shop 15, 69 Mitchell St. It is suggested that outbound bookings be made the night before departure to ensure timely pickup but they're very amenable and bookings can usually be fitted in at short notice.
