Cross-Border Taxis: Singapore to JB Taxi Fare Guide

profileJustin Oh

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!


TL;DR: How Much Is a Taxi From Singapore to Johor Bahru?

Changi Airport or Seletar Airport (SG)S$80S$120
Larkin Terminal (JB)Any location (excl. Ban San Street Terminal) in SingaporeS$55S$60 / S$70(Advanced booking)

Sadly, due to causeway jams, inflation and rising petrol prices, cross-border taxi fares are about to get more expensive from 11 July 2022.

For context, renting your own car (assuming the company allows you to enter Malaysia with it) would cost you more than $65 per day.
