Johor Bahru Transportation: 77 reviews and 78 photos

You have MANY options...
* CIQs (checkpoints) At CIQ on all bus services, you must get off with all your belongings, pass through immigration and reboard the same service (not neccessarily same vehicle) If visitng JB city centre, do not reboard hte bus after passing through JB CIQ, as the complex is right in the centre of town.

* S'pore buses (SBS and SMRT) stop at all stops in Singapore, but in JB *ONLY* at the CIQ and terminal, NO OTHER STOPS. Same is true vice versa for M'sian services.

* SJE and CW2 are express services, doesn't stop en route except CIQ, uses the CTE and BKE.

* If you pay cash, KEEP THE TICKET! You will need it to reboard.
