Hi,

May I know roughly how long is the jam at the causeway on Sat late morning?
The hotel check-in is around 2-3pm, I'm thinking what time to set off from home.
Up to 3 hours just queuing at malaysia customs...

That's like 2hrs... I once reached 9am (yes, it's a mistake coz I'd aimed for 8am) and reached only past 12noon.

Wanted to have breakfast but ended up having lunch.

Not sure why people still bother with Saturdays...

Your best ticket in, quite literally, is the train.

Also, boarding at Woodlands is better because sometimes the bus skips Kranji due to overcapacity.

I don’t go in Saturday as the crowd is huge and customs long queues....

Sunday before 10am reach Woodlands custom is good for me so far. Return before 3pm is ok.

Jb regulars,can share what will be the ideal time (avoiding the going back to jb crowd) by bus on weekday morning? Thanks.
When I'm travelling on public transport, on a weekday, this is how I do now: http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/108803662-post4225.html

I am usually at Woodlands Train Checkpoint at about 8am & by 8:30am I'm exiting JB ICA walking to City Square, at KSL about 9:15am-10am.

Coming back in the afternoon I usually take the 3:30pm train. After 3pm, car traffic is tricky to determine.
