Free shuttle bus service for Causeway pedestrians


Free rides: The shuttle bus provides 11 trips daily from 7.30am to 6.30pm.

JOHOR BARU: The state government through the Public Transport Corporation (PAJ) will be providing free shuttle bus service for pedestrians walking from Singapore’s Woodlands Checkpoint to the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) Sultan Iskandar Building here.

“Those who wish to enter Johor from Singapore and vice versa can hop on the bus stationed at the border between the two CIQs on the Causeway, ” PAJ said yesterday.

“A total of 11 trips will be provided every hour from 7.30am to 6.30pm with bus breaks from 12.30pm to 2.30pm every day.

“Users are advised to follow standard operating procedure imposed by the Health Ministry when using the service such as maintaining social distance, wearing a face mask and using hand sanitisers, ” it said.

It added that pedestrians were not advised to stop the bus along

the way and were required to board the vehicle at the designated locations.

State public works, infrastructure and transportation committee chairman Mohd Solihan Badri had reportedly said that he would be sending a proposal to the Federal Government to run a free shuttle bus service for pedestrians between the two CIQs.

The service is to ease the problems of Malaysians and Singaporeans travelling under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) and Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA) that can benefit about 2,000 people daily.
