Travelling to Legoland® Malaysia Theme Park
There are various way to travel to Legoland® Malaysia from Singapore. Here are some options that can be considered.
One of the method is to travel by taxi. However, most Singapore taxis are not allowed to cross the border to Malaysia and vice verse.
Only specially licensed Singapore taxis are allowed to enter Johor, Malaysia and stop at Kotaraya Shopping Mall (near the Malaysian Customs). You will need to change to a Malaysian taxi cab upon arriving at Kotaraya Shopping Mall. To take the taxi, you need to go to Ban San Street Taxi Stand, next to the Queen Street Bus Terminal to take the crossborder taxi
Specially licensed Malaysian taxis are allowed to travel any where else in Malaysia, without the need to change taxis. These taxis are operated by Johor Taxi Service.
Price is $10 per head or $40 per trip
The only public transport operating to Legoland® Malaysia is by Causeway Link bus from Singapore. Board the bus CW3 & CW4 from Jurong east MRT to CIQ(Custom, Immigration and Quarantine) 2nd link. Look for the the bus number JPO2, where there are four departure per day from CIQ 2nd link, 830am, 1130am, 230pm and 530pm. The fare price is only RM6, with 15 minutes travelling time.
Alternatively, the second option is to take bus from Kranji MRT to Larkin bus terminal in Johor Bahru, upon arrival at Larkin bus terminal, look for Causeway link bus number LM1, which depart to Legoland® Malaysia.
