If there are no taxis or public transportation just go for hitchhiking in Brunei as I did in my trip.

I was surprised how good hitchhiking was working in Brunei to move around plus the distance are very short. It’s always a great chance to meet local friends.

Thank you Ruben! Very useful information. We were wondering how we will get from the airport to our hotel, so your article came very handy :) Now we are trying to understand how we can move around the city and if it is crucial to live in the city center so you don't have to use public transport.
