How to go to Johor Premium Outlets by Bus

Johor Premium Outlets by GoingPlaces.sg via http://www.goingplaces.sg/johor-premium-outlet/

For those who do not own a car nor wish to drive to Johor Premium Outlets (aka JPO), you have two options to get there.

You can either take an express bus from Golden Mile Complex (which is also the more convenient way) or take the Causewaylink’s shopping bus services – JPO1 & JPO2. The JPO1 leaves from JB Sentral while Bus JPO2 departs from CIQ 2nd Link.

For my trip, I went by the JPO2 from CIQ 2nd Link and returned via JB Sentral by taking the JPO1. This way, I get to experience both buses’ services and quality.

Causeway Link CW6

Bus from Boon Lay to JB – Causeway Link CW6

I arrived at Boon Lay MRT station with an aim to take Causeway Link Bus CW6 to the Tuas 2nd link immigration. However, there is no proper signage of the Causeway Link Boon Lay bus bay, I ended up spending 15 mins searching for it. I behaved like a ‘tourist’ who was not familiar with Singapore, went to Boon Lay Bus Interchange to be told that Causeway Link bus bay is actually nearby the taxi stand.

After walking through the Xin foodcourt, I hit the dead end and saw the taxi stand. So you would nee to turn right and walk along the road for about 3 minutes, then you would find the CW6 Causewaylink bus bay and the bus captain. The bus fare is SGD2.00 per person for a 15-min ride and the interval time for the next CW6 bus is about 20-25 mins. Anyway, the bus left at 11.05am.

Shuttle Bus JPO2

Bus to Johor Premium Outlet – JPO2

After clearing Singapore custom, I hopped back to the same bus (CW6) and proceeded to Malaysia immigration. In less than 10 minutes, I cleared Malaysia immigration as well. I walked towards the bus bay and I soon found a signboard about Bus JPO2 and its staff. The staff advised that the next bus would be leaving at 12.30pm and the bus fare was MYR4.20 per pax. Okay, I cleared my first doubt – the shuttle bus service is not free!

As I still have an hour to spare, I went to a canteen nearby for a delicious and economical lunch for MYR 5. At 12.30pm, the bus left nearly on time and I started my journey to Johor Premium Outlets. The ride was about 50 mins.

Shuttle Bus JPO1

Johor Premium Outlet Bus – JPO1

After shopping for nearly 3 hours, I decided to call it a day by taking Bus JPO1 from Johor Premium Outlets to JB Sentral. It was scheduled to leave at 5.30pm but was delayed till 5.45pm to pick up more passengers. The bus fare is MYR5.00 per person and the ride is around 1 hour. As the bus was new & the seat was comfortable, plus I was tired after 3 hours of shopping, I quickly fell asleep and woke up just in time to alight at JB Sentral.

Bus from JB to Singapore – Causeway Link CW2

After clearing Malaysia Immigration at JB Sentral, I decided to take Bus CW2 to bring me to Queen Street (near Bugis MRT Station), a convenient drop-off point. The bus fare is very reasonable, at MYR2.50 per pax. Clearing Singapore immigration smoothly as usual, I quickly walked towards the CW2 bus bay to queue for the bus again. As I have already paid the bus fare at JB Sentral, I only need to show the ticket receipt to the bus driver to board the bus again. There wasn’t many passengers on the bus and the bus was traveling quite fast. At 7.30pm, I reached Queen Street.

Bus Travel Tips

  1. Whether you plan to take JPO1 or JPO2 to Johor Premium Outlets, buffer at least 30 mins for immigration clearance or you may miss the bus.
  2. Make sure you prepare the exact amount for the bus fare as the bus driver doesn’t return change.
  3. Remember to take the bus receipt after paying the bus fare.
  4. You can find cheap hotels in the nearby Kulai town or choose to stay at some the best resort hotels in Johor Bahru.

    • Hi Kian Ann,

    Thanks for the detail information with photos. Appriciate your effort. Hope it will very usefull for my trip.

    • Hi PS,
      Thanks for your comments and I’m glad that you find the information useful.

  • Steven

    Thank fro the information.

    I just wonder is it worth taking taxi booking from singapore home pickup to JPO and go back at S$120 for 4person?

    how is the shopping experience at JPO?

    i heard from friends go last time it is not good.. wonder how is it now since recently you just go.

    • Hi Steven,
      A return trip from Singapore to JPO via MRT/Bus that costs around S$11-S$12 per person is definitely cheaper than hiring a taxi at S$30 per pax. But for the convenience and time savings (and I assume the driver will wait patiently or at least allows ample time for shopping), then why not? I personally find the shopping experience at JPO a pleasant one as my favourite designer brands like DKNY, AX Jeans were going at 50%-60% discount. I was quite happy with my purchase of a AX cap at around S$30 after 60% discount. Some of the shops like Braun Buffel, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Versace were not opened yet when I last visited on 5 January. I am not sure if they are opened now. Whether it’s going to be a pleasant shopping trip can be quite personal, I wish you have a good shopping experience too.

  • Yongki

    Do you know the best time to travel to johor ? I have a plan to go there with my wife and 2 kids on Sunday.. Noon / Evening ?
    And how about to travel to Singapore from Johor on Wednesday? Is it very busy if I leave johor in the morning?
    For us, better taxi or bus ?
    Thank you very much..

    • Hi Yongki,
      Any time can be the good time to travel to Johor. Do expect weekend to be crowed if you plan to bring your kids to Legoland Malaysia.
      Visiting JPO outlet on a weekday is a good idea especially now that the schools are re-opened. To save cost, you can easily take a JPO shuttle bus from 2nd Link, but you have to monitor the bus time table schedule. It shouldn’t be too crowded in the morning if you are using the 2nd Link.

    We (2 person) are coming from Changi Airport Terminal 2 to JPO. Would you recommend taking a cab directly to Tuas CIQ then JP02 bus or taking the MRT to boon lay then follow your instructions? Is the singapore customs far from the malaysia immigration or is it both found at Tuas CIQ?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Reuben,
      Singapore and Malaysia customs are not far but the local taxi can only bring you to Singapore Custom at Tuas Checkpoint and you will still need to find transportation to cross the Second Link to clear Malaysia Custom at Sultan Abu Baker Checkpoint (also known as Sultan Abu Bakar CIQ Complex or CIQ 2nd Link).

      So the more convenient way is to take the MRT from Changi Airport to Boon Lay station (train fare is about S$2 per person). Alight at Boon Lay station and take the Causeway Link CW6 bus which can cross over the Second Link to the Malaysia Custom. You will have to alight and re-board the CW6 at Tuas Checkpoint to clear Singapore Custom. Finally alight at the Sultan Abu Baker Checkpoint(CIQ 2nd Link) to clear Malaysia Custom before proceed to the bus terminal to take JPO2.

    Hi,
    what would you recommend if I want to go to Legoland and outlet from singapore on the same day?
    Should i book a roundtrip bus ticket from WTS travel to legoland? This would mean i will take bus from legoland to outlet then bus back to legoland to return to singapore. Any bus that i can go from singapore to legoland and return to singapore from outlet?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Yan,
      I think you can do both Legoland and JPO on the same day so long you set off early. It is convenience to take a WTS bus from Singapore to Legoland, but I am not sure if you can hop on and off from Legoland to JPO with WTS Bus. You’ll have to call WTS to confirm this.

      If you prefer more flexibility, Bus JPO 2 alights at both Legoland and JPO. Check out the timetable of Bus JPO2 at http://www.goingplaces.sg/legoland-malaysia/

  • Ana

    Thanks!

  • Nicky

    Hi! May I know how can I get to KSL City Mall from Johor Premium Outlet?

  • Dennis

    Hi. do you how to take a bus from singapore to hello kitty town?
    also from hello kitty to legoland? thanks

    • Hi Dennis,
      You can book a bus that goes to Puteri Harbour. Hello Kitty is sited next to Puteri Harbour. http://www.myexpressbus.com/bus-ticket-online/easibook.html
      And Hello Kitty Land is only 10 mins away from Leogland, so you should be able to walk there or maybe take a taxi.

      • Dennis

        thank you for reply, but I was planning to take the public bus since I have the ticket to hello kitty and legoland already, in regards to WTS travel, they are requiring me to get 2 way to avail their bus coaches. Unfortunately, I will be coming from SG go to Hello kitty then back from Lego to SG. they dont have bus coaches on my request its just either lego or hkt.

    • Hi Viet,
      It is possible to visit both Legoland and Hello Kitty Land in Johor within a day. Please refer to http://www.goingplaces.sg/legoland-malaysia/ for information on how to go to Legoland Malaysia. You can either take a public bus (CW3,4,6) then change to JPO2 or book an express bus if you are going on a weekend.
