Crossing the causeway can be very time consuming during peak hours. Thankfully, besides buses with long queues and massive jams, there is the hidden option of taking the train.

For a nominal price of RM3 (SGD1.10), you can get across the causeway and clear both Malaysian and Singapore immigration within 20 minutes, if you’re willing to do some running. Without running, you’ll take about 40 minutes, which is still not too bad, considering you get across without a traffic jam. You can purchase these tickets 30 minutes before the train’s departure at JB Sentral station.

Here’s a RailTravel Station tip – the tickets come without seat reservations, considering that it’s just for a short distance. If you do not wish to stake out at the doors, you can head to the buffet coach for plenty of seats. The canteen stall would stop operating one station before and all the seats here would be empty, considering everyone else would be getting ready their luggage in their original seats.


Crossing the causeway would take just 5 minutes end to end. Meanwhile, enjoy looking at everyone on your left gets stuck in traffic.

The buffet coach comes with a door in the middle too, which has the smallest platform gap at Woodlands Train Checkpoint’s curved platform, so you get off easier too.

    The service is BS. Half the time when you go there there is no more tickets and there is a quota. Faster to walk. People ahd just boycott ‘the services’ for both trains and buses and walk.
