    Flights from JB on MAS coming via Singapore.

    by A2002 Updated May 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are going to take the flight to other parts of Malaysia from JB on Malaysian Airlines, there's a coach provided by MAS that will bring you straight to Senai airport from Singapore via the second link. It is more pleasant to use the second link as it is less crowded. The coach will depart from Copthorne Orchid Singapore hotel, and you will need a valid onward flight ticket to be able to use this service. It cost SGD12 per journey per adult.

    Conditions for using Coach service

    - Coach is used in conjunction with MAS Designated flight out of Senai, or into Senai

    - Passenger must have a confirmed ticket on the designated flight departing from Senai Airport (Johore), or arriving into Senai Airport (Johore)

    - Passenger requiring special handling or medical case or unaccompanied minors cannot be accepted due no special facilities available on coach

  • Bus from Singapore to Johor Bahru

    by caelle Written Apr 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can board a bus from Singapore (the bus terminal is near Bugis MRT) to Johor Bahru. It costs only SGD2++. If you do not want to join the crowds, you can board the taxi from the terminal to Johor Bahru too... If I can still remember, it costs ard SGD10 per person for the taxi? You can purchase the bus ticket back to Singapore from Johor Bahru. From there, you only pay RM2++ which is almost half the price of what you paid to get to Johor Bahru! :)

    JB from Singapore - Public bus (Causeway).

    by A2002 Updated Feb 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several ways to get to JB from Singapore.
    ---(a)---
    Take a SBS bus 170 from Queen Street, or along Bukit Timah Road. Alternatively, take the MRT to Kranji station and change to the 170 bus. Beware that the queue for the bus can be very very long during peak hours such as in the evening, and weekends, especially Friday evening and Saturday whole day. But most of the times, the bus service is very frequent, at least 1 bus every 5 minutes. The bus 170 will bring you to the Singapore immigration and you will have to get down through the immigration. Do remember to keep your ticket. You can board the bus again at the immigration then to the immigration and custom at Malaysia side. Still keep your ticket if you are going to Larkin, as you can board the bus after the custom check.
    If you want to get to the main tourists sites or shopping sites, get a taxi. Beware of being charged more than usual. JB city center is just near the customs.

    ---(b)---
    Get a Singapore-JB express from Queen Street. This bus will take the expressway non-stop to arrive at the Singapore immigration. Then you will have to get down to walk through the immigration. After that, go down the escalators and board the bus again to get to immigration and custom at the Malaysia side. Do remember to keep your ticket throughout the journey. You can board the bus again to get to Larkin. Take a taxi to wherever you wanna go if you are not going to Larkin.

    ---(c)---
    Catch the MRT to Kranji station, then cross the overhead bridge to the bus stop opposite. From here you can catch a bus operated by Causeway Link, CW1 to Larkin bus station in JB.

    Getting Around JB.

    by A2002 Updated Nov 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are public buses around JB, and of course, taxis. Since I always make sure I will have a car to go around while in JB ever since I got my driving license, I am not familiar with the bus services, but I do know most of them will stop at Larkin (JB's main bus station). There are frequent bus services to Pelangi, Holiday Plaza, Daiman, from Jalan Wong Ah Fook, which is about 5 minutes walk from the immigration.

    Alternatively, taxi is easy to hail (everywhere, anywhere). However, do look at my warnings tips about taxi.

    JB to other parts of Malaysia - Coach.

    by A2002 Updated Aug 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many coach services to other parts of Malaysia. There will be buses to KL from Larkin almost every half an hour everyday. You can get tickets on the spot during off peak. During the holiday season, so get your tickets in advance as they will be sold out.

    You can get tickets to other places like Penang, Alor Setar, or even up to Hatyai from Larkin. Buses to Penang or Alor Setar usually leave at night. These are usually the overnight coaches, arriving early in the morning. There will be a couple of stops along the way for toilet breaks and some snacks. For the comfort, I would suggest the Super VIP coaches that are 21-26 seater coach with wide and comfy seats that can be put down quite low for a good sleep. Do remember to bring a jacket as the air condition can be quite chilly.

    There are several express coaches that depart from Larkin Bus Terminal, for example Transnational Express and Adik-Beradik Express depart twice daily to Kuala Terengganu (morning and night coach). Not many coach companies are online at the moment. It might change in future.

    You can even make a day trip to Melaka. The coach leave from Larkin. There are travellers who have done day trips to Melaka. There are buses leaving Larkin to Melaka hourly by several operators. Check it here: http://www.cuti.com.my/Sub/Melaka/m_bus.htm

    So far, some websites that I have found for tickets: http://www.theticketing.com/

    A convenient way to travel

    There are taxis/cabs everywhere in Johor Bahru. However, beware that before the taxi driver drives off to your destination, make sure the meter is being used. There are case when meter is not used and passengers pay a higher price for the ride. It is cheap and convenient and it is useful to take a taxi to a hrad-to-reach place.

    KTMB to JB

    by daryll Updated May 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Intercity train(KTMB)

    Safe, Effiecient and Reliable, the motto holds by the KTMB malaysian train company.
    Yes, could depend on it, if you wish travel around Peninsula. It provides journey from North to South, From Hadyai to Singapore.
    I recommend this train system for those who wish to travel by train. It may indeed take few hours to your destination to compare with other vehicle such buses and cars. But local street scene and mother nature is the best way to look at it from the train.

    Main bus station - Larkin.

    by A2002 Updated Jan 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main bus stations is in Larkin, beside the main JB wet market. You can buy coach tickets from here to KL, Penang, etc. You will have to board the bus to Singapore from here. Many buses go to the city center and other destinations in Johor from here. I do not know the exact buses to get around since I always drive. But I do know, most bus services around JB will end in Larkin station.

    North-South Highway - Driving.

    by A2002 Written Jan 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    JB is the starting point of the North-South Highway at the South. This is a toll way and runs through Malaysia right to the border of Thailand. It is easy to get from place to place along the highway and there are many interesting small towns and cities to visit along the way if you have the time.
    For more interesting journey and see more of rural Malaysia, take the normal roads from the South to North, though it will be much slower. Journey on the North South Highway is quite expensive.
    Note the speed limit is 110km/h. Beware that there are many speed checks along the highway. The fine is hefty RM300 per offence of speeding.

    JB to and from Kuala Lumpur.

    by A2002 Written Jan 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many coaches that depart from Puduraya coach station in central of KL. It is a crowded place but there are numerous coach service daily to JB, about one every half hour throughout the day. You can go to the station and get your tickets on the spot, but not during the school holidays. All these coaches will take the North South Highway to zoom you to JB in 4 hours. There are super VIP, VIP, normal coach to choose from. Usually for the comfort, I will choose the super VIP coaches. The coaches will end at Larkin - JB main bus station. And also JB's central market.

    Another option is to take PLUSLiner from the central train station in KL. For this, you should make prior reservation. This coach company also has coaches direct from KL to Singapore via the second link.

    JB from Singapore - Train.

    by A2002 Updated Jan 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get to JB from Singapore on the train. The train station that you can board is at Tanjung Pagar. To get to the train station, take an MRT to Tanjung Pagar, then walk from there.
    You can also catch the train to Kuala Lumpur or other places in Malaysia from Tanjung Pagar.
    At the train station, you will have to go through the Malaysian immigration and custom at Tanjung Pagar. Then, the train will proceed to the immigration at Woodlands (Singapore side). Then to JB train station. You might find it confusing or weird, but that's the system.
    I will not suggest taking the train to JB cos it is faster by the public bus. I tried once, but never again.
    To check out the prices and schedule, go to KTMB's website below.
