Shuttle Tebrau 72up: Woodlands CIQ to Johor Bahru Sentral by First Train at 8.45am

The Shuttle Tebrau 72up is the first train of the day from Woodlands CIQ, Singapore to Johor Bahru Sentral, Malaysia, departing daily at 8.45am. With a flight to catch from JB Senai International Airport this morning, I decided to get the first train up to avoid any traffic jams and to give myself plenty of time to catch my AirAsia flight to Kuching.

With the low demand for travel with the COVID-19 situation, Shuttle Tebrau tickets are available to return back to Singapore on the same day with the Shuttle Tebrau now.

Overall, a convenient cross-border service as usual with the Shuttle Tebrau, especially with an upcoming flight to catch, so that my travel schedule is fixed to catch it in good time. Now, off to catch the Causeway Link Senai Airport Shuttle Service AA1 to Senai Airport.
