    option 1 - SBS Transit 170 @ Queens Street destination Larkin Terminal.
    option 2- Take Mrt to Woodland or Kranji, cross the causeway by foot. (used to do that)

    There is the other bus service called Causewaylink (yellow colored bus) Kranji MRT and JB. costs S$0.80 from Singapore to JB. I think its more frequent than 170. Sinca they started this service, 17o have to compete so I noticed that it has become more frequent
    Nothing like competition to give the the consumers better service.

    That's a Malaysia based bus service. The best thing is, they charge S$0.80 for the trip there, and they charge RM$0.80 for the trip back...

    Isn't that better than a situation whereas you have to wait for the next bus having missed the first half-full bus?
    Anyway, on peak days, the bus gets full really fast.

    You could also take the Singapore-Johor Express, that costs $2.40, but it goes by the expressway, slightly faster, and everyone gets to sit.

    the spore-johor express bus can be boarded at the same place as the SBS 170 i.e. Rochor.
