Singapore to Malacca Destination Reviews

Driver was smoking a cigarette 5 minutes before arrival
Bus Express, 707, Aug 10, 2022
I had to change buses at immigration in Malaysia, which ended up being easy, but I wasn't aware of the need to switch until right before the bus left Singapore. I had tried to check in twice at StarMart and was told to "just get on the bus". Finally when I went in to ask a third time the agent explained that I should board a bus to Kuala Lumpur and then switch. Easy in the end, but I almost didn't get on the bus since my ticket wasn't to Kuala Lumpur:)

Everything was ok, we exchanged the ticket voucher at no extra cost. The bus is clean and comfortable, not late for arrival.

Bus VIP 24, StarMart Express SG, Feb 11, 2020
Was very smooth overall. We didn't got to wait at all the border and things went smooth. Woudl just be nice a bit more of communication as at the borders quite often people were not sure what to do.
