Skybus to provide Staff service from all locations to Airport

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Currently the awesome Skybus link to the Aiport has services from Southern cross station, St Kilda and Frankston (in Melbourne). They are due to start a new service from Werribee as well. However they only allow airport staff to board from the city on a staff deal. I find this an outrageous decision considering airport staff are those who make the airport operational and helping staff get to work conveniently actually benefits Skybus. Currently staff have to catch a train to the city to board Skybus to be eligible for the staff deal. Staff can shave off as much as 1 hour from their trip if Skybus allowed them to board from a suburban location (and be willing to pay a slightly higher monthly fee). This will not impact Skybus's bottom line as I'm sure their load factor is currently around 80% (around off peak times which is when most staff would be on/off shifts and travelling to/from work). I can understand their decision of this was closer to 90-95%. Therefore it makes complete financial sense to allow staff to board from suburban locations! Further this will allow them to take a few cars off the roads and gain carbon points as staff who drive to the airport (living closer to the pickup points) will use this service! Therefore I encourage all staff working at the airport to sign this petition!
