By Road

Free Road Map of MalaysiaYou can drive across to Malaysia through the causeway or through the second link. However, it is a hassle to drive from Malaysia into Singapore if you do not know the many road payment requirements in Singapore. Singapore requires some payment to be made by prepaid cards, etc. , so be prepared. It is easier to take a taxi into Singapore, though rather costly.   

     From Singapore, the causeway take you into the heart of Johor Bahru city. The second link bypasses the city JB and takes you in into the toll/ PLUS expressway that passes through the length of the Malaysian peninsular, and this expressway goes up to the Malaysia-Thai border (a good option if you are not visiting Johor Bahru).

ROADS

Road to Malaysia from Singapore

a. Causeway links to Johor Bahru city centre. Drive through the city to join the plus expressway following the signboards which shows 'Lebuhraya PLUS'. Johor-Singapore Causeway, built in 1923, is a 1,056 metre causeway that links Johore Bahru (Johor), Malaysia to Woodlands, Singapore. This link, across the Straits of Johor serves as a road, rail and pedestrian link, and also carries water piping line into Singapore. Over 60,000 vehicles  crosses the causeway daily. This link goes into the heart of Johor Bahru city centre and joins the Federal highway. Beware of massive traffic jams at this causeway during the holiday season and even weekends. Thousands cross the JB to Singapore causeway daily.

Word of caution: The new custom and immigration terminal at JB is a MESS of confusion - creating bottle neck jam especially for vehicles, so drivers beware!!

b. Second Link - linking Singapore highway direct to the PLUS expressway (toll highway) bypassing the city. Malaysia-Singapore Second Link (Laluan Kedua Malaysia-Singapura or Tuas Second Link), of 1,920 m length, opened in January 1998. This bridge from Johor to Singapore was built to reduce traffic congestion at the causeway. It is a dual-three lane carriageway linking Kampong Ladang, Tanjung Kupang in Johor to Tuas, Singapore. Most coaches from Singapore to Malaysia uses this link. (Second link website: Second Link)

Malaysia 's Expressway: The Plus expressway or North-south expressway, a highway that takes you from Johor-Singapore border right to the Malaysia-Thai Border, cuts through all states on the west coast of peninsular Malaysia.

plus expressway (toll expressway) is a road link from Johor to Kedah at the Malaysia-Thai border

Second Link - Malaysia-Singapore link

Trunk Roads: Or federal roads is a system of well-paved roads that also cuts through every state and links towns and villages in Malaysia to the expressway. 

 More about Roads in Malaysia

 

DRIVING

Driving: Malaysia & Singapore follows the British system of driving on the left side of the road. Its easy to drive into Malaysia with your own car. You need only your passport, a completed entry/departure form and pay by cash. On the Singapore side, Singapore-registered cars have to comply with payments and petrol tank requirements. Just be prepare for road signs in the Malay language.

    But to enter Singapore using a foreign-registered vehicle, be sure you know details of the requirements, or you will be stuck there. Foreign-registered vehicles must pay two charges. Pay toll charges using a Singapore cash card (cash may not be accepted) on arrival and departure at Tuas checkpoint and on departure only at Woodlands checkpoint. You also have to pay VEP fees upon departure at both Tuas and Woodlands Checkpoints. (VEP – Vehicle Entry Permit). It is not advisable to drive into Singapore unless you know about all the payment system. For other requirements and details, check: Land Transport Authority Singapore - motoring guide.

TAXIS

Taxis in Singapore and Johor Bahru crosses the border (causeway) daily. Not all taxis crosses the border, so phone the taxi companies to check. You have to book the taxi when in Singapore. In Johor Bahru, Johore taxis to Singapore are available at the Sentral Kotaraya bus terminal or the airport.  You can also travel from the airport to any other parts of Singapore.

     It is much cheaper to take the taxi to the customs checkpoint on both sides of the causeway and take the bus through the causeway (from checkpoint to checkpoint) than to take a taxi across the Malaysia-Singapore border. But be prepared with loose change of the correct currencies.
