Connections to Singapore
There are three ways you can travel from Johor Bahru to Singapore: bus, taxi and train. Train is the best option because you avoid the queues on the Causeway which links mainland Malaysia to Singapore.
There are 14 departures a day from Johor Bahru Sentral Station to Woodlands Railway Station in Singapore from 05.30 to 22.15 every day of the year. The journey takes only 5 minutes and tickets cost 5 MYR one-way. Ticket gates open 30 minutes before each departure and close 10 minutes before the train departs. The big advantage of using the train to travel from Johor Bahru to Singapore is that there is an immigration office after you go through the ticket barrier and you get to avoid the lengthy queues at the immigration office on the Causeway linking Johor Bahru to Singapore. The disadvantage of travelling by train as opposed to taxi or bus is that Woodlands Railway Station is 1.6 km from the nearest station on Singapore’s metro system, Marsiling Undeground Station.
