Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange Ready For Transtar Travel VTL Bus

Transtar Travel serves Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange (WTBI) for VTL bus to Larkin Sentral

Transtar Travel will launch their Transtar Travel VTL Bus from 29 September 2021 with the introduction of the Singapore-Malaysia bilateral Vaccinated Travel Lane-Land (VTL-Land) by bus on the first phase.

I headed down to see Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange (WTBI) on the weekend before the VTL-Land launch, and on the first day, for hopefully a prelude to the small VTL crowd, and future SMRT Bus Service 950 crowds when border measures are further relaxed in future.

There is a counter in front of Berth B4 for check-in document checks, before heading to Transtar Travel VTL Bus queues.

Both Berths B4 and B5 have all old bus services signs removed, leaving just an empty frame above the queue lines.

On 28 November 2021, 1 day before the VTL-Land launch, I spotted 2 Transtar Travel VTL Bus at Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange Berths B4 and B5.

Be sure not to queue for SMRT Bus Service 950 – cross-border public buses are still not in operation.

Singapore-JB VTL Buses must be pre-booked at least 3 days before departure. Only approved VTL buses can ferry passengers across the border without quarantine.
