Johor Bahru to Singapore Destination Reviews

The train is fast but the place look like under renovation. That’s why it look like messy. I hope after it all done it should be ok. Thank you!

It's amazing that it only took 5 minutes. However, clear instructions must be stated when booking online. For example, ONLY passport number should be used if going to Singapore instead of the option to use ic no or passport no.

The instructions to exchange or not to the actual tickets are not clear. Or else it can be a easy travelling mode. Thank you.

Sorry ,this is not about the trip.My issue is that this booking was a mistake as this is the first time I booked your service.I wanted to cancel and re-book something more suitable but was repeatedly rejected that I was not allowed to double book .This booking was for around 5 am from JB terminal, while what I wanted was 5 pm return(to Singapore) As a result,since my 5 am slot was not practical for my schedule ,I have to forgo my trip as I could not get a return ticket because your system does not allow "double" booking,I was willing to cancel the 5 am slot and forgo the refund.But the system is so cast in stone that there is no way round it.

How to get from Johor Bahru to Singapore by Train

Taking a train to get from Johor Bahru to Singapore is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Johor Bahru to Singapore tickets.

As normally there is no congestion, the speed of travel is more or less constant and stops at train stations are rather short, train is almost always one of the quickest and safest ways to get from Johor Bahru and Singapore.

The most important thing that may affect train travel time is the type of train. Ordinary trains travel at a speed of about 40 mph or 65 km/h to 65 mph or 105 km/h.

The speed of express trains can reach up to 100 mph or 160 km/h. Modern high-speed trains can run at speeds exceeding 250 mph or 400 km/h.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
