go to the JB taxi stand beside (behind?) sim lim tower. all the licensed JB taxis are there. $40/cab or $10/pax.

SG cabs that are registered to take passengers into JB can pick up from anywhere here but can only drop off at the central terminal there.

The same, but opposite, is true for JB taxis registered to bring passengers into SG. They can pick up from anywhere in JB but can only deliver to the central terminal near Golden Landmark Hotel.

Best is to grab a normal cab to the town centre here and take a JB taxi from there to Senai, as taxico has already said.

Yes. Go to Queen Street bus terminal (near Bugis MRT station) and there is a terminal for long-haul cabs to Johor. Not sure how much but you can have one to take you to Senai airport.

some time ago, some of the SMRT taxis were officially picking passengers from Singaproe and send them to JB - anywhere - I have done it a few years ago .. they had the required permits etc.

not sure if that changed ..

I believe that might not necessarily be a taxi, more like a private individual or company that takes 'private' bookings, such as many JB hotels use their own car to send guests to Changi?

Kids are studying at which school?

Are you a Malaysian? (which allows you to work in SG and live in JB)

Work at Tuas?

Need more info before we can advise anything.
