Arriving in Singapore by Bus

There are long distance buses from all major cities and towns in Peninsular Malaysia to Singapore. For all buses, upon arrival at the immigration points of each country, you are required to disembark from the bus with all your luggage, pass through passport control, then return to your bus once again. Do not lose your ticket in the process.

(Once, the bus left without me while I was going through the Malaysian Immigration point. I was to hitch a ride across the Causeway to Singapore. Thankfully, the bus driver realised that I was not on board the bus and was waiting at the Singapore immigration point. Needless to say, I was furious.)

From Johor Bahru

The Malaysia-based Causeway Link buses ply a route between Johor Bahru and Singapore. There are three routes: CW1 between Larkin via Kotaraya in Johor Bahru to Kranji MRT Station in Singapore (fare: S$1.30); CW2 between Larkin and Queen Street in Singapore (S$3.20) and CW3 between Bukit Indah via the Second Link to Jurong East MRT Station (S$4.00).

The Singapore-based SBS and SMRT buses also cross between Malaysia and Singapore. SBS 170 (red plate) goes from Larkin to Queen Street via Kranji (S$1.70); SBS 170 (blue plate) goes from Kotaraya to Kranji MRT Station (S$1.10); SBS 160 goes from Kotaraya to Jurong East MRT Station via Kranji (S$1.60); SMRT 950 goes from Kotaraya to Woodlands MRT Station via Marsiling (S$1.30). And then there's the Singapore-Johor Express plying the route from Larkin to Queen Street (S$2.40).
