You can get there with a public bus, coach, Singapore-Johor taxi, limousine, yellow taxi and private car.

Tips, Tricks, and Feedback
The feedback we’ve gotten on this option isn’t great. A family of four will end up spending SGD$24 in bus tickets each way. And how many hours from Singapore to Legoland? If you leave at 8am on a weekend, you might not reach LEGOLAND until close to noon. Young children are quite tired from the journey and the last thing you need is a crabby kid on the Dragon Coaster. It is advised to depart as early as possible or around late-afternoon for guaranteed seats on the Malaysia-side buses.
Option 2: Private Bus Tour Company
Pros: Shorter travel time than public bus. You board at a designated stop in Singapore and are dropped at LEGOLAND Malaysia.
Cons: More expensive, designated departure might be inconvenient, requires credit card or Paypal to book, need to disembark bus and go through customs in both Singapore and Malaysia, some companies require you to book LEGOLAND tickets through them.
Price: SGD 20 – 56 per person (round-trip).
Recommended for: Adults, seniors, and families with kids age 7-18, who want to reach LEGOLAND Malaysia in less than three hours.

Note: There are many other tour companies in Singapore with similar packages, but all will use either the Singapore Flyer or Lavender MRT as dropping points unless you are staying at a hotel, in which case some companies will provide a shuttle from your hotel to the Flyer. (They usually tack on a few extra dollars to the package price for this service.)
**Differences in Border Crossings: Woodlands vs. Secondlink (Tuas)**
Please note that traffic conditions can vary greatly, depending on whether your bus crosses the Singapore-Malaysia border over Woodlands vs. Secondlink (Tuas).
Woodlands is the original link into JB Senter and is generally more congested as it is cheaper and closer to residential areas. Traveling from Singapore in the mornings (particularly on weekdays) via Woodlands is usually not very congested; making travel time similar to crossing over Secondlink. However, evenings, mornings and weekends can vary greatly.
Secondlink connects to the west of Singapore and goes towards the shipping area in Malaysia with expressways that lead to the airport. It is generally quicker in terms of boarder traffic and much closer to LEGOLAND Park. However, the recent development of Iskander (including residential and education) has meant more professionals living in Malaysia and commuting into Singapore, plus the price of schooling in Singapore has forced families to send their children to education campuses in Malaysia. Singapore and Malaysia are constantly working at Secondlink to deal with the influx of traffic.
The usual travel time from Singapore to LEGOLAND via Secondlink is about 1 hour. If you return via Woodlands, the trip could range from 1-2 hours at the Malaysia side (not counting 30-60 extra minutes you will spend getting off the bus and going through two customs checkpoints). It is of most driver’s opinions that the Second Gate / Tuas side is more reliable, but in any case, it is always good to check the traffic cameras to see what traffic is like, prior to deciding on a route.
If traveling in ANY commercial vehicle (i.e. a vehicle that can seat 9 or more people), you will ALWAYS need to disembark the bus two times at both Singapore and Malaysia customs to get your passport stamped. There are often looooooooooooong queues.
Tips, Tricks, and Feedback
Check traffic cameras at www.trafficiti.com before deciding whether to take a bus traveling via Woodlands or Tuas / Secondlink. Expect the whole trip to take 2-3.5 hours. We wouldn’t encourage you to start your trip during weekday’s mornings and evenings. You will get bored for traffic jam and Long Long queues in Singapore & Malaysia Check point.
Option 3: Take a Singapore Taxi
Pros: Don’t have to change vehicles or alight vehicle to clear Customs, no need to carry heavy bags.
Cons: You can only go from one point in Singapore to one point in Malaysia
Price: Approx. SGD 10 per person (Share-a-cab) or SGD 40 per vehicle, Singapore to Johor Bahru. Return is RM 15 per person (Share-a-cab) or RM 60 per vehicle, with extra charges for each stop. You will need to pay a second taxi on the Malaysia side to take you from the Kotaraya Taxi Stand (Terminal Bas Sentral Kotaraya, Jalan Trus, Bandar Johor Bahru 81800) to LEGOLAND.
Recommended for: Families with small children and/or elderly; people carrying a lot of luggage.
Only specially licensed Singapore taxis are permitted to take passengers from the Ban San St. Taxi Kiosk on Queen St. (Singapore 911832, 5 minutes’ walk from Bugis MRT Station) to the Pasar Bakti terminal in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. From the Pasark Bakti Bus terminal, you will need to arrange a second, Malaysian taxi to LEGOLAND. Taxi service from Ban San St. Taxi Kiosk to the Johor Bahru Taxi Terminal at Pasar Bakti Kotaraya II costs S$10 per person (for a Share-a-Cab) or S$40 per taxi vehicle departing from Singapore.
Singapore-bound passengers already in Malaysia can come home via a taxi from Kotaraya Taxi Stand (Terminal Bas Sentral Kotaraya, Jalan Trus, Bandar 81800 in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia). Again, you would need to take a separate Malaysian taxi from LEGOLAND to this departure point, where Singapore taxis will wait. The return service to Singapore is available 24 hours/day and costs RM15 per person (for Share-a-Cab) or RM60 per vehicle. Again, these taxis will NOT drop you at your house, but to the Ban San St. Taxi Kiosk on Queen St (near Bugis MRT) only.
How to book:
Call +65 6296 7054 or just head over to the Kotaraya Taxi Terminal on Queen Street in Singapore. If in Malaysia, call +60 7222 5859 or +60 7 224 6986.

You can ask a Singapore driver to arrange the Malaysian-side taxi; if he does it, you can be expected to pay at least SGD 55 up front to him, plus the costs of the other taxi to the Malaysian driver. You will get to avoid lugging your belongings through customs at both ends, as the car will be able to drive through the border while showing your passport to a checkpoint through the window.
Option 4: Cross-Border Luxury Taxi Service
Pros: Don’t have to change vehicles or alight vehicle to clear Customs, no need to carry heavy bags. They can pick you up at your door and drop you right at LEGOLAND Malaysia, taking the fastest route via Woodlands or Tuas. Luxury vehicles such as Mercedes E-Class available for folks who want to travel in style.
Cons: Most expensivvvvvvvvvvvvvvve option.
Price: SGD 170 per way for a Malaysian Hyundai Starex; SGD 320 for a Mercedes E-Class (max 4 passengers). Waiting will cost an additional SGD 10 every 10 minutes.
Recommended for: Families with small children and/or elderly; people carrying a lot of luggage who are not budget-conscious.

Option 5: 7 Seater MPV Private Car Transportation Service
***Highly Recommended ***
Pros: Shortest Possible travel time at lowest cost. Door-to-door service from your residence to LEGOLAND Malaysia in 45 – 90 minutes (depending on traffic conditions). Drive through the boarder (Secondlink) without having to exit the vehicle and clear customs. If you have more than five people travelling, it’s actually cheaper than the bus options. Instant booking available via WhatsApp.
Cons: Higher than bus options if travelling in parties of 3 or less.
Price: SGD 100 – SGD 150 per trip (up to 6 passengers)
Recommended for: Families with small children and/or elderly; people who want to maximize their time in LEGOLAND Parks and their budget as well.
Fleets: Toyota Innova & Toyota Alphard
How to Book:
You can get a Toyota Innova for S$90 (one-way), or a Toyota Alphard for S$140 (one-way) to LEGOLAND. Both vehicles fit up to seven people. Toll fees are an additional S$ 10. They are available on weekends and Public Holidays, and can take luggage (for no extra cost) or arrange multiple vehicles for parties of 8 or more.
They will always travel via the Secondlink / Tuas side, which as described earlier, has less traffic and is much closer to LEGOLAND Malaysia. Like the Taxi and Luxury Taxi options, you don’t have to get on and off the vehicle when going through borders, because the vehicle is able to drive straight through, passing your passports to the checkpoint guard for instant stamping.
Tips, Tricks, and Feedback
There are not many downsides to using SGMYTAXI. It wins our vote mostly because we don’t want to break up our weekend trip to LEGOLAND with a long commute that leaves us exhausted before we even arrive! We don’t want to get on and off a bus constantly, and we also enjoy not having to share our space with a bunch of strangers. We also don’t want to pay an arm and a leg. The safety and security of SGMYTAXI is just icing on the cake.
With other options, you need to factor in:
a.) Time/cost of getting to the bus stop or drop point from your house (plus the hassle of carrying your bags);
b.) Time wasted getting on and off at the Singapore and Malaysian borders (still schlepping those same bags on and off each time!); or
c.) A lot of money going to extra taxis, extra wait time, and more.
Quite frankly we’d rather spend the money on cotton candy, and the time lounging in the LEGOLAND Wave Pool.
