Taxi to Mersing
When buses and coaches to Mersing are fully booked, typically the case during the busy March till September period, you can opt to go to Mersing by private vehicle. These private vehicles come in all sizes, from simple and cheap passengers cars, to bigger and more comfortable MPV vehicles, right up to minibuses and larger private buses.
For your information, if you come from Singapore, then it's useful to know that passengers in regular sedans getting their passport checked do not have to exit the car to have their passport checked. Instead, passports are handed to the official at the vehicle passport control areas. However, passengers in larger vehicles, such as buses, usually do have to disembark and subsequently queue at the passport control counters. What's more, all luggage must also be carried upstairs. So if you prefer convenience, then a passenger car is recommended.
Rates of taxis vary according to availability, size and of course your departure point, so inquire before you proceed with the actual booking.

Going by taxi will be a bit more costly than going by bus. However, going by taxi has several benefits that a bus cannot offer. For one thing, passenger collection is any time you like and from any preferred pick-up point. And the taxi drops off passengers right at Mersing Harbour Centre.
I.e. the taxi service is door-to-door.
In addition, taxi passengers can remain in the vehicle during passport control whilst crossing the border into Malaysia and back. This privilege is not extended to bus passengers. All bus passengers have to disembark their bus, with their luggage, in order to walk to the Immigration complex escalators and then on to the passport control queuing area. This applies to both Singapore's passport control and Malaysia's too.
In other words, a taxi offers a fair amount more comfort and convenience. Good to know.
