Better Ways to Get Around Kranji Farms or to Sungei Buloh without Driving

Updated: Jul 27



Getting around Kranji farms used to be pretty easy — it did not warrant a concern to me when I planned a farm tour on a weekend. The day-tour could have been a wonderful trip if the shuttle bus service provided was not overwhelmed by a surge in weekend crowds. The group of us ended up walking most of the way.


With COVID-19 still ravaging fiercely around the world, overseas travelling options is ultra-limited. Locals have taken to travelling around the little island of Singapore resulting in increased visitorship in many places, including offshore islands and, of course, Kranji farms. With school holidays already started, the shuttle bus service is not able to meet the sudden surge in demand (unless the shuttle operation is revised).


If you are not driving, be sure to read this post on the transportations available before embarking on your farm tours, especially on weekends. If you are driving, avoid weekends if possible as there are too many cars packing the road sides — most farms do open on weekdays.



🚐 KRANJI COUNTRYSIDE SHUTTLE BUS


Kranji Countryside shuttle bus operates from Kranji MRT Station to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and several designated farms and then retraces the same route back to Kranji Station. Each loop takes about one hour. The fare is $3 per person per round trip, $1 for senior citizen and children (pay exact amount, no change will be given). Retain the ticket to re-board the shuttle bus to other points along the route.



The shuttle bus departs from Kranji MRT Station at 8:30am, 9:30am, 11am, 1pm, 2:30pm, 4pm and 5:45pm to the last stop at Jurong Frog Farm.


It will depart from the frog farm at 9:10am, 10:15am, 12:15am, 1:45pm, 3:15pm, 5:05pm and 6:20pm to Kranji MRT Station.
