There are many different ways for a Singaporean to travel to Johor. We are going to explore some of the most common ways we use to travel across the border.
A few companies have been granted the concession to ferry guests across the border, and all of them require you to disembark at least, first at the Singapore checkpoint, then once more at the Malaysia checkpoint. A change of buses is unavoidable as there’s no direct transport from Singapore to Johor. There are 2 ways to Johor by bus.
Route A (via causeway):
- Take MRT along the NS Line to Kranji station
- Cross the overhead bridge at Woodlands Road and board a bus to cross over the causeway towards Singapore’s customs.
- Upon clearing customs, head towards the rail station in JB Sentral.
- Board a bus at the station to travel to your desired destination.
Route B (via Second-link):
- Take MRT along the EW Line to Jurong East station.
- Board a bus from Jurong interchange to the Tuas checkpoint.
- Alight at Singapore customs for baggage check, then proceeds to Johor Bahru customs via the bus.
