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.
