    But do beware of the poth-holy and dark and narrow roads at the customs.

    Taxi

    by billbing Written Oct 23, 2006

    From Singapore, we took taxi for S$8 per person and you will be in the comfort of your seat. No need to get off the taxi when you pass by the immigration. Just give your payment to the driver and your passport plus the immigration form and there you go. Luggage will be inspected on a case to case basis. We opted to travel by taxi because of the immigration convenience and it is faster. The drop off point will be at the terminal in Johor. You can take the taxi in Singapore at Queen's St.

    Cabs

    by signedbytheo Written Jan 18, 2006

    The taxis in Johor Bahru have the tend to cheat their customers by not using the meter. Result is that you pay twice or tripple the normal price. You can ask the taxi driver to use the taxi meter when you get into the car. All cabs have a taxi meter installed as required by law. If he does not want to do so, then take another taxi. Don't use cabs with a fixed price because the most times it's by taxi meter much cheaper.

    Take Cab in Johor Bahru

    by stanleykuan Written Feb 20, 2006

    To travel by taxi in Johor Bahru (JB), you MUST ask the price before get in to the car. Negotiate and negotiate again. Normal price to Pelangi Plaza or Holiday Plaza is about RM6-7.

    Don't take taxi just outside JB custom, the rate is highier. Walk to the nearest shopping centre and take from there, it will be cheaper.

    If taxi driver agree to charge by meter, grab it! Charging by meter is always the cheapest.

    Taking a train to or from Johor Bahru, the railway station opposite City Square (very close to the immigration checkpoint) is the place to go.

    White colonial style building, about 20m from Johor Bahru checkpoint.

    Busstop location

    by Armado Written Apr 6, 2005

    If you don't know, it's difficult to find, trust me, I've been there :)

    Entering from the Singapore side, walk straight and pass the City Square Mall ( You can't miss that one, it's quite big ) on the right side. Just walk and walk and walk untill you see the bus stop on your left hand side.

    From there, many public transport buses leave to various places.

    Bus to Other Malaysian Cities

    by Sambawalk Updated May 8, 2005

    Near the border checkpoint, there are various bus companies selling bus tickets to other parts of Malaysia. The costs of buses are much cheaper than those if you travel from Singapore. However, the bus terminal is at Larkin, which can be accessible by local bus.

    Entering JB from Singapore

    by Pomska Updated Jul 7, 2004

    It's very easy and cheap to enter JB from Singapore because these two cities are connected with the Causeway.

    You can use frequent public bus (no 170) or Singapore-JB Express Bus. I used the Express Bus and it was ok. Of course the Express Bus is a little bit expensive than the public bus.

    Free Car Park in JB

    by ngcsc Written Nov 26, 2004

    For those who are travel to Singapore but who are driving to JB, there is a free car park for you to park for a whole day or two to save you parking fee.

    It is suggested to park at the Pelangi Leisure Mall at Taman Pelangi, then take a free shuttle provided by the shopping mall to City Square which is close to the JB immigration

    Bus to Kuala Lumpur's renovated Pudu Raya

    by Edy8 Written Mar 27, 2012

    Taking a bus from Larkin Terminal at Johore Bahru used to be a breeze. Now it is no longer the case. Take for instance our travel to Kuala Lumpur recently. As we alighted from our bus in Johor's Larkin Terminal from Singapore, we were accosted with pestering touts asking where we would be heading. Their sales pitch is that the bus, going to our destination, in our case was Pudu Raya in KL was leaving soon. Buy the ticket now? The bus is leaving now! We paid RM 35 at the counter and was given our seats in the bus. We loaded our luggage into the bus and occupied our seats. But the bus was not leaving.

    We sat inside the bus for about 30 minutes. A Korean passenger went to ask the driver and the logistics officer. Leaving soon, leaving soon, but the bus still did not leave.

    Another 15 minutes later, we were told to change to another bus. This bus is `damaged'. Too bad, we unloaded our luggage and got into the other bus, which remained parking in the Terminal.

    Half an hour later, still the bus was not leaving. The Korean passenger left again to look for the menders. Still not leaving?!

    About 20 minutes later, the bus finally started and we left, travelling to Scudai area. About 10 minutes later, the bus stopped near a bus stop and waited and waited. Three passengers came and boarded the bus about 20 minutes later and we were no the way.....

    After Yong Peng, we stopped for toilet-break. Here we were told to get into another bus, which was going to Pudu Raya, KL. Yes, that bus is going, not this bus. But we bought the ticket for Pudu Raya?!

    The journey to Pudu Raya took around five hours. But we lost over two hours waiting for the bus to start its journey. Johor's Larkin Terminal is not what it used to be, just sharing.

    Bus 6315 of Qistna Express Sdn Bhd Changed to this Bus before departure The bus we finally took to PUDU Raya

    Touch n Go Card

    by Aidy_p Written Jan 14, 2012

    I'd to take this picture not to show you how empty the toll booths at the 2nd causeway over at the Malaysian side was. But why I took this picture was because you need to remember to do two things:-

    1. Have your Touch n Go card ready
    2. Have value within your card

    Without this card, you'd be stuck at the causeway and at the other toll booths. I'd both and the crossing of the causeway went about without much of a fuss. However, when I approached the toll booths a couple of kilometres away, I somehow could not find my card. "Did I drop it?" was my first reaction.

    I'd to stop my car between two of the booths while looking for my card. When I found it, it was like striking gold!

    Always keep the Touch n Go card close to you!

    , but somehow I just could not find the card
