The best way>>only kotaraya taxi go to Singapore only

By taxi,goto Kotaraya to take a taxi directly to Singapore.

a)ist stop at JB immigration for passport stamping,continue journey

b)2nd stop to Singapore immigration for passport stamping and luggage check,then all the way to Singapore

I agree with leopang, it is advisable via taxi especially for those who goes to Singapore from JB for the first time. It's less hassle compare to taking a bus, no need to go down, que & get back to the bus.

Not recommended,very ,very messy

By bus>>

The cheapest way and most hassle way.

Must had enough loose coin to buy ticket as there will no change for notes.

Must retain ticket to re board another bus of the same company>>red bus or yellow bus

Take any bus heading to Singapore or to Kranji MRT station.

a)Take along your luggage when you arrive at Johore Baru immigration for immigration stamping and custom checking

b)after stamping take along your luggage ,join the que for bus to take you to Singapore immigration

A long walk to the SIngapore immigration with your luggage

c)Join the que for immigration,after that

d)join the que with your luggage for custom scanning

e)Join the que with the luggage for the same bus company to stop at (MRT)Kranji or to Singapore.

A very very tiring and messy affair with luggage to tag along

Not sure about the current fare now>>around this rate

A shared taxi will cost Rm10-15/passenger

Chartered taxi for 4 passenger would cost Rm40-60/ all fare fixed ,.

From Malaysia will be in Ringgit.

Singapore to JB will be in Sing$

@jibbitz

Just wonder if you are travelling to JB from KL. There are express bus from KL to SG using Tuas second link instead of woodland checkpoint. Using Tuas second link is much easier for tourist as it is less messy than woodland. Personally crossing through woodland is really a mess.

FYI. There are 2 checkpoint to SG where one is woodland checkpoint at JB and the second checkpoint is Tuas second link.

If you don't have luggage with you, then can try by bus to experience how to cross two countries. but if you carrying the luggage then you need to consider again due to you need to carry your own luggage up and down the bus at both country CIQ.
