Route History

Advance Coach AC 7 is a cross-border route connecting Yishun, Sembawang Rd, Sembawang MRT, Woodlands Ave 9 and Marsiling to Sultan Iskandar CIQ, the customs checkpoint in Johor Bahru. Introduced on Wednesday, 15 December 2010, the service was part of bilateral Singapore & Malaysia agreement to improve transit links between both countries. Formerly terminating at Kotaraya II Terminal, it was shortened to JB CIQ following the closure of the terminal.

Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, travel times and frequencies may increase significantly when jams occur. At each checkpoint, rides will be suspended and passengers have to alight and clear customs before boarding the bus again. Upon reboarding, passengers will be required to show proof of payment (issued receipt).

Fare: S$2.20 (ez-link) or S$2.50 (Cash) from Singapore, RM $3.00 from Malaysia.

Fleet: AC7′s fleet comprises a full fleet of Yutong ZK6118HGA buses.

    Waited for almost 45 minutes at jb custom there is no any bus till now getting back to worst. If unable to commit to transportation services just quit rather than making the passenger wait for hours what do your company gain whereby other buses appear atleast 15-20 mins approximately… worst servive ever…

    I want to complaint the driver ac7. Most of them never wait passenger on board after sp custom clearance. The driver fast left the bus waiting area. Yishun to jb / jb to yishun . ( chinese driver bus no. 9861 or indian driver is very rude to passenger)

    At the end we pay the bus fares but never board the bus. This is unfair for the passenger.

    Pls improve.
