While our team is eagerly anticipating the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail, we found out that Grab is planning to launch its first ever cross-border carpool service. Yep, this means that we can easily travel from Johor Bahru to Singapore or vice versa, in a private car at a relatively affordable price!

Of course, you can’t beat the price of taking the public bus ($2 to $4) but if you’re looking for a more comfortable and private ride, carpooling not allows you to save on the usual cost of driving or taking a taxi. It would also (hopefully) help lessen the crazy congestion at the tolls and there won’t be a need to alight from a vehicle to get through immigration checkpoints, which are definitely plus points for us.

This new service will be available from 20 June onwards, so if you’re planning to try it out, let us know how it goes! 😉
