Miscellaneous Fare Information for Manjalink users
Manjalink users will be required to tap their card upon entering the bus, which includes re-boarding the bus at the various checkpoints.
As the ManjaLink card is loaded with values in MYR, for SGD fares passengers will be charged based on the prevailing exchange rate determined by Causeway Link. For example, the published ManjaLink fare for JB-bound CW3 is $4.00, and as such when ManjaLink is used, 4.00×2.98= 11.92, thereby deducting RM12.00 from the card, taking into consideration the Malaysian system of rounding cents.
