cheapest way from Melbourne airport to city centre

G'day. I'll be visiting Melbourne in November and am hoping to find the cheapest way from the airport to the city centre (and back). Won't have much luggage so hoping to find a local bus or train connection. Thanks for any advice, Mike :)

Cheapest and fastest way is the skybus (its an advantage Melb has over most other capital cities here).

In theory, there is an occasional commuter bus, but it's infrequent and involves a change. Even though Skybus is a few dollars extra, it's easy to use, frequent and quite fast.

Those of us that live here would like to find a train connection too, alas our govt's aren't big public transport fans. As said above Skybus is really the only reliable cheap option.

Starbus is new? Never heard of them before, but the return rates certainly lower than Skybus.

Starbus has been around for a few years but only operates 6am to about 7.30pm and drops off at heaps of places around CBD - have seen the bus - it is small. You need to book on line or by phone which perhaps puts some people off.
