  • 707 Bus to Melaka

    by schaefer82 Written Oct 2, 2013

    Just want to share the 707 buses to Melaka. My friend who stayed in Melaka recommended this bus company to me because of it's on-time service and good boarding location in Singapore (near Bugis MRT Station).

    I took the 7pm bus to Melaka on friday night and saw there are 5 buses waiting along the road / at the car park. Their buses plate number are all ending with 707 and it's quite special to me. It is recommended to book early if you want to take their buses because it's usually full at least 2 weeks before the departure date (crazy!). Luckily it's possible to book online so i've secured my ticket much earlier.

    The bus arrived at Melaka at about 11.15 pm, roughly 4 hours ride with 15 minutes toilet break. Overall experience is quite ok cause i sleep most of the time. Only thing is their buses is quite old comparing to other company which i saw in Singapore custom (think it's Delima Express also heading to Melaka).

  • Buses to Melaka

    In 2004, August during National Day, I went to Melaka. What a costly mistake it turned out to be! The traffic was very heavy and I reached the bus terminal at 3 pm. At the bus terminal, I searched for return ticket back to Singapore. But, almost all of the bus companies were fully booked. In the end, I managed to get a bus company that was going to Johor Bahru. I think I took the 9/10 am bus to Johor Bahru and then take SBS 170 to Singapore. There, I stayed for twelve hours plus. My advice is that plan your trip earlier.

    THE 'TERMINAL'

    Want to go and visit Malaysia? Kuala Lumpur? Malacca? The Lavender St. Bus Station can arrange it for you. Do not spend a lot of time trying to book on-line as the office is not on the net and most bus companies do not book on-line. The Lavender St. Bus Station is not a station! It is a large car park with busses on it and a small ticket window. Please look carefully at the first photo or you may walk past it. Just arrive in Singapore and figure out the Metro System. Go to the Lavender St. MRT station and ask anyone you see where the Malaysia Busses are. It’s around the corner and about 500 meters away. You come out of the Lavender St. MRT Station on the major road of Victoria St. Go left (NE direction) until you come to the major road of Lavender St. Now walk left and it is past the shell garage on the right hand side of the road. Hope you have wheels on your luggage!

    Just buy your Bus ticket from the office a day or 2 before you want to go. If you like to have everything organised before you leave home, this will be concerning. Do not worry. Loads of busses go every hour with plenty of empty seats.

    If you have the patience you can take a bus from here to the first large town in Malaysia, Johor Bahru. The bus terminal there goes everywhere and is cheaper.

    Bus station in lavender street (+ Kallang Bahru terminal) is one of the possibility to leave Singapore by bus.
    Personaly, I've used Malaca Singapore Express bus line. Bus was old, noisy but acceptable compared to the price (16s$).

    In my view, I appreciate to use different transportations styles, as the contact with peoples and experiences are differents.

    Bus from Malaysia to Singapore

    A bus can be taken from Kuala Lumpur (puduraya bus station) directly going to Singapore but I suggest that a stop-over be made in Melaka Malaysia (spend a day or two there then take the bus from Melaka Sentral Station to Singapore).

    From Melaka, a bus ticket to singapore would cost RM 17 and travel time would be around 4 hours. (We bought our ticket from "Melaka 707 Express" Bus company)

    bus from melaka to singapore

    by junelee Updated Apr 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    well, i will like to recommend 707 travel bus which is offering 2 + 1 seaters.This is a new bus service to spore. This bus will stop in Queen street or Bugis junction in singapore. The fare is cheaper than other bus services. You may buy two-way ticket at around RM41 at Melaka Sentral. It only offer the return ticket at 1.30 pm from singapore. The bus only stops once at the rest side and also dropping passengers in Larkin( Johore bahru) before it proceeds to Singapore. Some bus driver may never stop at all. There are cheap and budget hotels in Bugis street which are clean and well-maintained. One of them isBugis Backpackers. There is a nearby MRT station(bugis) which is less than 5 minutes walk from the station.

    Bus To Melaka

    If you want to go to Melaka you can take the Singapore Express. In october of 2003 it cost me $11.00. Bus airconditioned. The bus will make 3 stops. 2 Stops at the border and one of them at a Bar where you can buy, eat and go to the toilet. At the bus station a man will come to you for ask you if you want to change money. I founded the change correct. There I get my first MYR.
