Service CW4S is a cross-border route connecting the Taman Ungku Tun Aminah (TUTA), Taman Sri Orkid, Lima Kedai and Gelang Patah areas in Johor with Jurong East Bus Interchange in Singapore, via the Tuas Second Link crossing. The route is one of four regular cross-border bus services operating via the Tuas Second Link, along with Service CW3CW4, and CW6.

Second Link plying CW services, inclusive of CW4S, operate as public bus when operating in Johor sector, stopping at all en route bus stops along their route. It effectively serves residents of flats along Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, Taman Seri Orkid, Mutiara Rini, Mutiara Mas, and Nusa Perintis. Because CW4S does not serve these residential areas from Gelang Patah towards Sutera Mall (plying express to Sutera Mall instead), passengers will have to alight at Gelang Patah Bus Terminal and change to Bus 666 (details below, at Transfer to other bus services section).

Service CW4S has a unique operating pattern, only operating during the mornings and evenings on Mondays-Saturdays and Singapore Public Holidays. In addition, some buses departing CIQ Second Link may terminate at Gelang Patah rather than continue to Sutera Mall. It is advised to inform the bus drivers and ground timekeepers if one intends to head for Sutera Mall. On Sundays, CW4S operates throughout the day.

Second Link-plying CW services, inclusive of CW4S, do not stop at any bus stops in Singapore except the designated boarding point at Jurong East. Due to varying traffic conditions at the Tuas Second Link, travel times and waiting times may increase significantly when traffic congestion occurs.

Operating Hours:

Service CW4S has unique operating hours. On Mondays to Saturdays and Singapore Public Holidays, it will only operate in the morning (Sutera Mall to Jurong East) and evening (Both directions).

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 Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), passengers boarding from Singapore and paying fares in Singapore Dollars (SGD) will be charged based on the prevailing exchange rate determined by ManjaLink. For example, the published ManjaLink fare for JB-bound CW4 is S$4.00, and as such when ManjaLink is used, 4.00×3.08= 12.32, thereby deducting RM12.40 from the card, as the Manjalink system rounds up the fare to the nearest 10 cents.

The prevailing exchange rate for ManjaLink is regularly updated and can be found on their website.
