Melbourne Airport Rail is a transformational public transport project connecting Melbourne Airport to Victoria’s regional and metropolitan train network.

Trains will run from Melbourne Airport through to Sunshine Station, then into the Metro Tunnel and the heart of the CBD, before continuing on to the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.

This eagerly awaited project will connect people from the airport to where they need to go - be that work, home or Victoria’s key tourism destinations - via a rail service for the first time.
