From Singapore to Johor, Malaysia


Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru in Malaysia is popular among Singaporeans who want to get cheaper prices for their shopping, beauty treatments, haircuts and golf games. Many buses travel from Singapore to Johor Bahru, and the bus fare for any Singapore to JB bus is usually under SGD4.



Taking a bus from Singapore to Malaysia


All buses going from Singapore to Johor Bahru, Malaysia stop at Singapore immigration and Malaysian immigration where you must alight with all your luggage and your passport to go through customs. The entire process of crossing the Causeway takes at least an hour.

Taxis to JB

You can take a Singapore cab from the Queen Street Singapore Taxi Terminal to the Johor Bahru Taxi Terminal at Kotaraya II Terminal in JB (S$10/person). It won’t make crossing customs faster, but at least you don’t have to leave the cab or move your luggage out of it during your journey.


We have more info on our designated page for Singapore to Malaysia by Taxi.



On Foot


Crossing the Causeway on foot is officially not allowed but still frequently done. It’s a 2-kilometre walk with pedestrian walkways that are often bumpy or non-existent. Walking is a good choice if you have no heavy bags, but for most travellers, Johor Bahru travel is more comfortably done on wheels.



Places to visit in JB


Check our online guide for what to see and do in Johor Bahru and around. Most people come for shopping.





Private Transport

You can also use a Private Passenger Transport service, typically a van, to travel in a small group across the causeway. This is helpful especially when you want to see a number of places within a given time frame, and do not want the hassle of competing for transport with locals in a foreign land. Such services take you from a location in Singapore to Malaysia and back. One service, www.tjitransporter.com, arranges trips for people going to Johor and beyond for shopping, fishing, diving, visiting places of interest and more.
