    Singapore-JB Border crossing

    by tedandtina Written Jan 6, 2008

    Seems if you drive in from Singapore, the Tuas border crossing is a lot less crowded than the Woodlands checkpoint, but a bit out of the way.

    Depends on how much time you have and how patient the driver is...

    If it is a weekend or a public holiday, you are returning Singapore with your car and it is heavily congested, don't need to worry.Use the lorry customs at Tanjung Puteri.It is open to cars at a certain timings.The timing for the usage of cars at Tanjung Puteri are as follow.
    Saturday,
    7pm-12am
    Sunday and Malaysia/Singapore public holidays:
    1pm-12am
    But do beware of the poth-holy and dark and narrow roads at the customs.
    Directions:
    At Tebrau Highway , there will be signs written "Kompleks Kastam Lori" on a signboard along the road heading to Singapore. Follow the sign and go all the way straight until you come to a T- junction. At the T-junction, turn right and head into the car lane for customs.

    JB Taxis

    by Avya Written Sep 29, 2007

    Tell the taxi driver to use the meter and you'll be fine. Most taxi drivers here are ok. Getting a taxi from City Square would be better that getting taxis near the immigration checkpoint. If you intend to get a cab to Tebrau City, it shouldn't be more than RM 20.

    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.

    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.

    Railway Station

    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.

    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
