Service CW6 is a cross-border route connecting the Taman Bukit Indah area within Johor with Boon Lay 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 CW4S , and the only one to serve Boon Lay. The boarding and alighting point of this route at Boon Lay is an abandoned bus stop along Boon Lay Way, near Boon Lay MRT Station. CW6 is currently the only regular bus service to call at the stop.

Second Link plying CW services, inclusive of CW6, operate as a local bus while operating within Johor, hence serving at all en route bus stops. They do not stop at any bus stops in Singapore except the designated boarding point at Boon Lay. Due to varying traffic conditions at the Tuas Second Link, travel times and waiting times may increase significantly when traffic congestion occurs.

Boarding Points:

  • Giant Nusa Bestari: Tent inside Giant Nusa Bestari car park, opposite Jalan Indah 15.
  • Tuas CIQ & CIQ 2nd Link (Arrival / Departure): Designated bus boarding point
  • Boon Lay: Boon Lay Way bus stop near Boon Lay MRT Station

Fares & Inter-Checkpoint Transfer:

At each checkpoint on the Singapore and Malaysian side of the border, passengers will have to alight and clear customs before boarding the bus again. When travelling between Tuas CIQ Complex and Sultan Abu Bakar CIQ Complex (“CIQ 2nd Link”) in either direction, commuters may board any Causeway Link bus (Service CW3CW4CW4SCW6) with a valid ticket. Commuters using the ManjaLink Card should tap their card upon entry.

With a valid ticket at Tuas Second Link, passengers travelling towards Jurong East can similarly board CW3, CW4 or CW4S to Jurong East as the fare is the same. Alternatively, passengers heading towards other destinations in JB can transfer to other bus services at CIQ Second Link.

Fare:

Charges section fares. ManjaLink Card payment is accepted on this bus service. Only Singapore currency is accepted when boarding the bus in Singapore, and Malaysian currency is accepted when boarding from Malaysia.

Fares towards Singapore Fares towards Giant Nusa Bestari
Giant Nusa Bestari → Singapore: RM5.00
CIQ Second Link → Singapore: RM2.60
Boon Lay → All JB destinations: S$4.00
  • ‘Singapore’ refers to boarding/alighting at Jurong East or Boon Lay
  • Fares are identical for Cash and Manjalink payment modes
  • Fares for travelling between areas in Johor are usually around RM1.50 – RM3.00

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.

One thought on “Causeway Link Bus Service CW6

    I don’t know why there is no feedback section with regard to services provided by CW6? The operator shall regularly review the possibility to offer a reasonable and acceptable standard to passengers. Through many personal experiences and observation, buses had never intended to wait for passengers (even a tiny 5 mins) will be tremendously helpful. I really pity those waited at immigration station (both Sg and JB) for hours and hours and would be pleased to see if any of CWS’s management staff to experience themselves for the services they provide to public. Be responsible please.
