Uber / Grab Taxi to Singapore

Hi, we would appreciate if anyone could tell us whether the process of going through Singapore customs and immigration is straight forward if we had to travel by Uber/Grab Taxis? We were thinking of leaving our rental car at either JB Sentral or Sun Parking for 2-3 days. Your input is very much appreciated.

1. Re: Uber / Grab Taxi to Singapore

Uber is now part of Grab within SouthEast Asia..

Grab is not allowed to cross the border between Malaysia & Singapore..

Get yourself to Larkin Sentral to take a cross-border taxi to Singapore.

If you take a Singapore licensed taxi , you can request the driver to drop you at a specific destination in Singapore , for an additional sum of $$..

Malaysia licensed taxis can only drop off their passengers at Queen Street Taxi Stand in Singapore ..

Cheers

There is no more Uber in Malaysia and Singapore as its Southeast Asia operations had been bought by Grab.

Grab is not allowed to cross the border. You can either arrange for a door-to-door private transport from a transport service provider, or take the official cross-border taxi from Larkin Sentral terminal. Both private transport cars and taxis use the drive-thru immigration booths at both checkpoints, you will usually stay in the vehicle throughout the journey.
