About Us

Welcome to Port Douglas Shuttle Bus. We are dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable, and efficient airport transfer service from Cairns (CNS) Airport to Port Douglas (and back again).

We understand that our customers will be exhausted from a long day of travelling when they touch down in Cairns Airport. This is why we go above and beyond to ensure that the final leg of your journey will be as quick as possible.

From your initial booking through our website, right through to the final drop off at your accommodation, our service is easy, accessible, and stress-free.

Scheduled and direct airport transfers

All our airport shuttle transfers are direct and we adhere to a strict timetable, for your convenience. When doing the last leg of your journey – particularly after having been cooped up on a flight for hours – the last thing you want is to have to keep stopping and starting. This is why we pride ourselves in offering a direct transfer service with no stops in between.

Additionally, we don’t want our passengers to have to sit around and wait for the bus to fill before they can depart and make it to their final destination. As such, we stick to a tight schedule so that you can start enjoying your holiday as quickly as possible! Other shuttle bus services may keep you waiting around until they fill their bus, which can often take up to 30-minutes and beyond. However, when you book with Port Douglas Shuttle Bus, your transport will depart at the scheduled time without delay, so you’ll know exactly when your transfer leaves.

Scheduled and direct airport transfers

To us, there is nothing more important than your comfort and safety. This is why we ensure that all our vehicles are spacious enough to accommodate you, clean and litter-free, thoroughly air-conditioned, and regularly serviced by qualified mechanics.

While the journey between Cairns Airport and Port Douglas is direct and painless, for the duration of your short journey with us, we want you to feel perfectly at ease.

If you have any special requirements, please do not hesitate to let us know in advance and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.

Health & Safety Note: all of our vehicles are cleaned and disinfected regularly. 

Polite and professional drivers

All our drivers have Queensland Transport Drivers Authority, are well-trained and dedicated to providing you with a friendly and professional service. Additionally, our local drivers have a thorough knowledge of the area should you have any questions.

From the moment you touch down in Cairns Airport, to when you exit the bus at your booked accommodation, you will be treated with the utmost care and respect.

Family-friendly service

We understand just how stressful travelling with small children can be. Rest assured that we provide a family-friendly service and that your children will be well looked after. Child seats and boosters are available on request. You can choose from the following:
  • RFR (Rear Facing Restraint): for new-borns and infants.
  • FFR (Front Facing Restraint): suitable for infants and children up to 2-years of age.
  • B (Booster Seat): ideal for children aged 3 to 7-years.
Please note child seats must be requested when making your booking. If you arrive without a booking there is no guarantee of child seat or booster availability – which can cause unnecessary delays. Children aged 7 years and below are not legally required to use child seats on buses in Queensland that seat 13 or more passengers.

Total transparency

Rest assured that there will be no hidden charges associated with our airport shuttle bus transfer services. We are 100% transparent about our prices and aim to keep them as fair and competitive as possible.
