Singapore bus operators will reinstate cross-border bus 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 operating between Singapore and Johor Bahru, Malaysia from 1 May 2022.
The operating hours and frequency of Services 160, 170, 170X and 950 will be the same as pre-COVID, operating between 5.20am and 12.30am.

The Land Transport Authority of Singapore is also working closely with its Malaysia counterpart Agensi Pengangkutan Awam Darat (APAD) 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.
No information has been provided yet by Agensi Pengangkutan Awam Darat (APAD) or Malaysian bus operators on their resumption of Singapore-Malaysia cross-border bus services from 1 May 2022.
All travellers are reminded to comply with travel requirements of Singapore and Malaysia to ensure smooth immigration clearance.
With the resumption of regular cross-border bus services, the existing Transtar Travel Vaccinated Travel Bus Service (VTBS) and Causeway Link Vaccinated Travel Bus Service (VTBS) will cease to operate on 1 May 2022.
