Journey: Melbourne Airport to Box Hill

Box Hill is one of Melbourne’s better-known suburbs. It’s located in the east, which places it some 37 kilometres from the Melbourne airport at Tullamarine. Getting between the two is not hard, thanks to Melbourne’s renowned public transport systems. There are buses, trams, taxis, and more in operation around Melbourne airport. However, they aren’t always the best option. Taxis can be quite expensive over those distances, and taxi ranks often become congested with travellers during peak airport arrivals times.

Buses are great, but they don’t always offer the service you need. To get from Melbourne airport to Box Hill by bus, you’ll probably need to transfer from one service to another. That can leave you with significant travel times, and walking distances. Luckily, that’s not a problem with a Hughes airport transfer. We offer door to door services from Melbourne airport to Box Hill at any time of day or night.
