Travelling around Singapore and Johor can be stressful. To make it easier, taking a taxi can be the best way to get around. But with so many different types of taxis, where do you start? Don’t worry – whether you’re travelling solo or with a group, we have all the expert advice you need for getting around Singapore and Johor via taxi.
Types of Taxis in Singapore and Johor
In Singapore, there are three main types of taxis that are available for hire: ComfortDelGro cabs, Premier cabs, and SMRT Taxis. ComfortDelGro cabs are the most commonly used taxis in Singapore; they come in seven different colours (yellow-top, blue-top, green-top, orange-top, pink-top, limousine cab and silver cab) and charge fares based on distance travelled. Premier cabs are more expensive than ComfortDelGro cabs but offer superior services such as complimentary Wi-Fi access and mobile phone charging points. Finally, SMRT Taxis are electric vehicles that offer eco-friendly travel options at competitive prices.
In Johor Bahru (JB), there are two main types of taxis available: Teksi Ekspres JB (TEKSI) and Teksi Meter JB (TMJ). TEKSI is the most popular option since it is comfortable and affordable; fares vary depending on the distance travelled. TMJ is similar to TEKSI but tends to be more expensive due to its higher quality service standards. Both TEKSI and TMJ accept cash payments as well as major credit cards such as Visa or MasterCard.
Booking a Taxi
The easiest way to book a taxi in either Singapore or JB is through an online booking platform such as GrabTaxi or Uber. These platforms allow you to book your ride quickly without having to call up individual cab companies or wait for a taxi at the side of the road – making them particularly useful if you’re travelling during peak hours or late at night when taxis may be hard to find. You can also use apps like CityCab SG or MyTeksi/GrabTaxi MY to book rides directly from your smartphone!
Of course, if you choose not to use an app or online platform for booking your ride then you can always opt for traditional methods such as calling up taxi companies directly or hailing one from the side of the road (although this might take longer).
Conclusion: Taxi from Singapore to JB doesn’t have to be difficult – just remember these few tips! Make sure you know what type of taxi you should take when travelling between both cities; check out online booking platforms like GrabTaxi/Uber if you want quick access; and finally don’t forget traditional methods like calling up cab companies directly if necessary! With these steps in mind, your journey will be safe and stress-free no matter where your destination might be!
