Johor Bahru (JB) has always been a quick weekend getaway for Singaporeans, be it for cheap food, shopping or massages.
Getting from Singapore to JB isn’t too hard either, with a myriad of options available to us such as driving over, taking the KTM train, or just good ol’ walking.
Then again, not all of us are able to afford a car.
And for those who want to avoid all the inconveniences associated with other modes of transport, a cross-border taxi is the closest thing we can get.
So here’s how much you’ll need to pay for a cross-border taxi and how you can get from Singapore to JB in comfort!
