Pro Tip: Larkin Bus Terminal!
Bus to Mersing
Malaysia and Singapore both possess quite an extensive bus and coach network. Throughout both countries, it's easy to hop on a bus or coach to a wide-ranging set of town and cities.
In fact, you can reach Mersing by bus from pretty much any location in Malaysia. And the same applies to buses originating in Singapore. After all, Mersing is one of the more popular destinations, given that it's the de facto jumping point to Tioman Island.
Rates are friendly when traveling by bus, though you'll travel cheaper by taking one of the actual buses, as compared to the available coaches.
The latter tend to offer a little more comfort, such as pullman-type seats and more spacious interiors, along with more direct routes. Typically, ticket price for a coach exceeds regular bus ticket rates by a bit of a margin.

Taxi to Mersing
Of course some travellers prefer to take a taxi to get around, since a taxi ride usually offers a bit more privacy, comfort and convenience. Obviously, a taxi trip has a different price tag than a bus trip. But if you have the budget, or you're traveling in a group of 3 or more, then taking a taxi is a great way to travel.
Not to mention that you tend to get to your destination quite a bit faster by taxi than by bus. More time to enjoy when you get there. Who doesn't want that?
But best of all, in part resulting from the attractive currency exchange rate, taxis in Malaysia and Singapore are rather affordable. Whether the vehicle you need is a sedan, an MPV or a van, taxi rates tend to be quite attractive when compared with taxi rates in Europe, USA or Australia.
