Starting from May 2022, you'll once again be able to take a public bus or taxi to head into Malaysia.

The LTA has announced that public bus services and taxis operating the cross-border bus services between Singapore and Johor Bahru will resume operations come 1 May 2022.

From the Singapore side, these buses include services 160, 170 and 170X operated by SBS Transit Ltd, Service 950 operated by SMRT Buses Ltd, and Services TS1, TS3, TS6 and TS8 operated by Transtar Travel Pte Ltd.

The LTA states that the operating hours of Services 160, 170, 170X and 950 will be the same as pre-COVID, and will operate between 5:20am and 12:30am. The frequency of the bus services will also be similar.

Services 160, 170 and 950 meanwhile, will operate at intervals of up to 20 minutes during peak hours and intervals of up to 25 minutes during off-peak hours, while Service 170X will operate at intervals of up to nine minutes during peak hours and up to 17 minutes during off-peak hours. Commuters can also check LTA’s MyTransport.SG app or operators' websites for bus operating hours and arrival timings.

The Land Transport Authority is also working closely with its Malaysia counterpart Agensi Pengangkutan Awam Darat to resume cross-border taxi services. Commuters travelling to Johor can either board a taxi at the Queen Street taxi terminal or book one through taxi companies with licensed cross-border taxi drivers.

The existing Vaccinated Travel Bus Services operated by Transtar Travel Pte Ltd and Handal Indah Sdn Bhd will cease on 1 May 2022.
