I'm wondering, since 856 looks like the most convenient, what are the chances that most buses will arrive too filled up for us to board? Should I worry about this?
You referring? pardon me, don't quite get you. 856, I have taken many times but that was weekdays, never an issue as I took it next to 950 at berth 9 in Woodland interchange. Along the way, not many people board it.
Only those who prefer to walk into custom will take. Most will wait for 950.
FYI, for some who know how to take 856, as many don't know about this way of travelling to custom.

MY usual buses to Custom 911, 913 & 856. There are other buses going too, but I would avoid as the journey is further and takes longer time to reach.

From opp Marsiling Mrt bus stop, 856 go to the woodlands ktmb train checkpoint bus stop. 950 go straight in woodlands checkpoint. During peak hour, 950 will be full at woodland temp bus interchange or no bus due to most bus stuck at SG/JB custom jam. During that time take 856 and alight at train checkpoint bus stop and follow the crowd walking/rushing to woodland train checkpoint building.

Walking direction -> (take the stair or lift, follow the passageway, up two escalator or lift, follow the passageway, walk pass the arrival hall and soon will reach departure hall)

On weekdays, at 0800 when I start walking (from Woodlands Train Checkpoint) into SG ICQ, I'll be cleared by JB ICA before 0830.

Need not print out. This is what I usually do.

SG-JB show e-ticket from the app to exchange physical ticket
JB-SG scan the QR code on the e-ticket

Thanks for the info.

Would this be the Easybook app? Haven't tried using their app as previously booked coach to Melaka via their website.
