Day Trip to Johor Bahru Malaysia - How to go to Johor Bahru from Kranji MRT Station Singapore

Yesterday, I decided to pop over to Johor Bahru for a day shopping trip. The last time I went to JB for a shopping trip, I took a bus from Queens Street via Causeway Link Bus CW2. You can view the previous trip in my previous post.

This time round, I decided to take the bus from Kranji MRT Station.

The bus stop is just infront of Kranji MRT Station, we can take either Bus 170 or CW 1 to Johor Bahru. Either bus is fine with us. We took Bus 170 which arrived first, the fare is distance based cause we took the MRT Train earlier as for CW1 I think the fare is about S$0.90.

It took about ten minutes only from Kranji MRT Station to Woodlands Checkpoint. We had to alight from the bus and tap our EZ Link Card on the bus scanner, it show the bus ride suspended (means no fare deducted cause of the distance based fare from our earlier MRT Ride).

After clearing the custom at Woodlands Checkpoint, we made our way down to the bus bay and this time we could take either bus 170 or bus 160 but not the Causeway Link Bus (CW1 or CW2) and vice versa cause both are from the different bus companies, to head to Malaysia Checkpoint in Johor Bahru. On boarding the bus, we need to tap our EZ Link Card again and on arrival at the Malaysia Checkpoint, we had to tap our EZ link card again in the bus before alighting and again it shows bus ride suspended.

After clearing the custom at the Malayia Checkpoint, we just followed the signboard to head to JB Sentral (followed the red arrow in the above photo).

PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.

Hi, when travelling by public bus from Singapore to Johor via the causeway, do we need to fill in the white Malaysia immigration cards? If so, where and when can we collect the cards to fill

alicesg said...

Hi Jimmy Tan, whether by bus or plane, we dont have to fill in immigration cards anymore, u need to scan your finger prints at the custom infront of the custom officers, but if the causeway is too crowded I think they do away with the finger scanning too.

Hi Alice

My family planning a trip to Legoland for a 1d 1n trip. Thank you for the clear directions u've shared.

My problem here is. Are there any shuttle bus from Legoland to the hotels in JB ?

This the only hurdle. Other than that we're quite ready to go.

Hope u could help.

Thanks.

Hi Joy, I have no idea. I guess the only alternative was to take the shuttle bus back to JB Sentral and take the bus to the respective hotel, am not sure which hotel you are staying. I guess is wise to take a cab from Legoland to your hotel, am sure everyone will be feeling very tired after the outing at Legoland.

Thank you very much, Alice. Your directions and pictures are very helpful and detailed.
Is JB Sentral same as Kotaraya II Terminal ? I need to reach a place where I can take a taxi to Pulai Springs Hotel

alicesg said...

Hi Vincent Ho, I think the Kotaraya II terminal is closed, not sure if it used to be same in JB Sentral. After clearing custom, walked toward JB Sentral and the bus interchange, along there, are lots of taxi, there's even taxi touts as u walked out of the custom building, I think u need to bargain the taxi fare, most dont go according to meter.

Hi Alice,
May I know, where I can get EZ link card in Johor Bahru?
Or is it only available in Singapore?

The EZ link Card is available at TransitLink Ticket Offices at most MRT Stations or Bus Interchanges in Singapore. U can pay your fare in cash by just dropping coins or notes into the box in the bus if you do not have the EZ link card but please give exact amount, the bus driver do not carry cash to return your changes.
