GETTING AROUND JOHOR BY BUS
Visitors to Johor Bahru can travel to different places within the city by using its extensive bus service network. The buses have destination boards and mostly operate from Larkin Central or the main bus stops in the city centre opposite of City Square (a shopping mall linked to the Malaysian Customs). The fares for the majority of the buses are relatively cheap and they also cater to travellers who are heading to the outskirts of Johor.
