Option 1: Singapore to Legoland By Bus

If you want to take a Singapore to Legoland Malaysia bus, there are two choices – the yellow public Causeway link buses going to Legoland from Singapore or a Legoland shuttle bus Singapore.

Catching the Causeway link buses are cheaper but they take much longer and can be confusing. They can also be very full and aren’t great if you have luggage, young children or doing a day trip and want to maximise your time at Legoland. I wouldn’t recommend this option at all if you want to do a day trip to Legoland.

A coach to Legoland from Singapore is much faster – it is just going straight there (although you will still need to get off at the border) and there should be more space. It should also wait for you at the border instead of having to find a new bus. However, there is less flexibility of what time you will depart and where to catch them from.

Causeway Link Bus To Legoland Malaysia

When it comes to how to go to Legoland Malaysia from Singapore by bus, there are a few options depending on where you are departing from.

In all cases, you are looking for yellow Causeway Link buses. You are going to have to catch a few of them as none are direct to Legoland and you’ll need to get off the bus at each side of the border, go through immigration and then wait for the next bus to come.

Looking at Google maps can be the best way to sort out exactly what buses to get from where you are in Singapore to Legoland.

But basically, you can look for Causeway Link CW1 (Kranji MRT Station), CW2 (Queen Street), or CW5 (Newton Circus). They will take you to the Woodland Checkpoint (Singapore immigration).

From here, hop back on a Causeway Link bus to the customs at Johor Bahru to enter Malaysia. Once you have entered, you’ll need to hop back on a Causeway Link bus going to JB Larkin station.

From here, you can take Causeway Link, LM1. It’ll take you to Mall Of Medini which is a short walk to Legoland. The big downside is that this bus only runs every 90 minutes. It takes about 45 minutes.

The Singapore to Legoland bus fare is approximately SG$7 all up. The Singapore to Legoland Malaysia bus travel time will depend on where you depart from and how busy the border is. From downtown areas in Singapore, two and a half hours is normal and that’s if you get a good connection for your second bus.

Singapore Legoland Shuttle

The WTS Travel Singapore to Legoland coach departs from Singapore Flyer and goes directly to Legoland Malaysia every morning.

The Singapore flyer bus to Legoland generally leaves at 9am and returns at 5:15pm but this can vary and there can be multiple departures at peak times. When border times are short, the Singapore flyer to Legoland travel time is only about an hour.

There are also other options for how to go from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia by coach with different departure points including Golden Mile Tower, Boon Lay, Tuas and more. If you are looking for how to get from Singapore airport to Legoland Malaysia, you can also get a shuttle bus to save you needing to go into the city.

These are the only bus options I recommend for a day trip to Legoland. Note that you’ll still need to exit the bus at both sides of the border.

Option 2: Taxi From Singapore To Legoland Malaysia

If you want to go from Singapore to Legoland by taxi, you can’t catch any taxi in Singapore. It has to be an especially licensed Singapore taxi or a Malaysian taxi.

I recommend a Malaysian taxi as a Singapore taxi can only take you to Larkin Bus Terminal in Malaysia and then you will need to take a second Malaysian taxi to Legoland Malaysia.

You can take a Malaysian taxi across from Singapore at the Ban San St. Taxi Kiosk on Queen St. This is straightforward and they can drop you off at Legoland. This taxi should take about an hour if lines aren’t long at the border.

A huge plus of taking a taxi is that you don’t have to get out of your car at the border. They can drive you through.

Make sure you also take into account that you need to get to the taxi stand in Queen Street. It is near Bugis MRT.

Since this still costs S$80, I recommend you take the next option, of a private transfer, which is only slightly more, holds up to 5 people and will pick you up from anywhere in Singapore. You can also book this for a certain time so you don’t need to worry about getting stuck waiting for a taxi.

This is especially the case for the return journey, as you’ll need to make your way from Legoland to JB Larkin before you can catch your taxi which is about 20-30 minutes away.

Option 3: Singapore To Legoland Private Transfer

The easiest answer for how to get from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia is by private car. You can book a private transfer that will pick you up from wherever you want in Singapore and drop you off at the entry to Legoland in Malaysia.

This way you don’t need to worry about getting to taxi or bus stops and can relax when going through the border. You won’t have to leave the air conditioned comfort of your car

A private car Singapore to Legoland is more expensive at SG$90. However, if you have the budget, this will make your trip to Legoland so much more enjoyable, especially with kids. For this price, you can have up to five passengers. There’s also larger vehicle options for bigger groups.

You can book it here.

You can also book the return journey for the same price. It’s far and away the best way to visit Legoland, especially on a day trip.

Option 4: Singapore to Legoland By Car

If you have your own car in Singapore then the best option may simply be to drive across.

As stated above, the Singapore to Legoland distance is about 45 kilometres and at times when the border isn’t busy, you could be across in as fast as 50 minutes.
