When you've completed your Singapore passport-check, exit the complex down the escalator. From here, you get picked up by the same Causeway Link bus, which then takes you to The Malaysia side of Immigration in Johor Bahru (JB). Once done with the passport-check in JB, you take the same bus again to Larkin Bus Depot, a short while away. After arriving at Larkin Bus Depot, you need to change to another Causeway Link bus to get to Mersing. Also, this bus only takes Malaysia currency, so make sure you have some Ringgit on you. Note: The daily Causeway Link departure times from Larkin Bus Depot are 8 am, 11 am, 4 pm and 7 pm and may not always be early enough for the ferry. The good news is that you can book your tickets from JB to Mersing online once you've registered at their website. (Select Johor Bahru as your "From" location).
