Bukit Chagar RTS Station is an above-ground station and the Malaysian terminus of the Singapore–Johor Bahru RTS Link, currently under construction.

Bukit Chagar station and its adjacent ICQ complex are a part of the Southern Integrated Gateway, the main transportation hub of Johor Bahru which also includes Sultan Iskandar CIQ Complex and Johor Bahru Sentral railway station. A mixed development (including an integrated transport hub) is also being planned directly adjacent to Bukit Chagar station, but as a private development unaffiliated with the RTS Link project.

Platforms at Bukit Chagar station will be based on the Spanish solution, with a central platform for boarding passengers, and two side platforms for alighting passengers.


Departure Flow (towards Woodlands North, Singapore)

Passengers heading towards Singapore would have cleared both Malaysia & Singapore customs at the adjacent Bukit Chagar ICQ building before entering the station. The boarding platform serves trains on both sides.

Arrival Flow (from Woodlands North, Singapore)

Passengers arriving from Singapore would have already cleared both Singapore & Malaysia customs at Woodlands North, and can directly exit the station upon alighting from the train.

Operating Hours

Train service operating hours are between 6:00 am and midnight, with the option of starting earlier (at around 5:30 am) should there be passenger demand for it.

Transport Connections

Various forms of road and rail transport connections are offered in the vicinity of Bukit Chagar station. The adjacent integrated transport hub is still under planning and will not be addressed in this section.

Rail

Inter-city rail services are operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) from the nearby Johor Bahru Sentral railway station, the Southern terminus of KTM’s West Coast Line.

Current train departures from Johor Bahru Sentral (as of 26 June 2020):

  • Ekspres Rakyat Timuran to Tumpat: 1 daily service
  • Ekspres Selatan to Gemas: 3 daily services
  • Shuttle Tebrau to Woodlands: Up to 18 daily services*
    * (Suspended due to COVID-19 travel restrictions)

The Shuttle Tebrau between Woodlands-Johor Bahru will cease six months after RTS Link passenger service begins.

Train services from Johor Bahru Sentral are expected to be improved with the Gemas-Johor Bahru Electrified Double-Tracking Project (EDTP), scheduled for completion in late 2021.

Bus

Local bus services are offered from the nearby JB Sentral Bus Terminal. A proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) system, called the Iskandar Malaysia Bus Rapid Transit, is being planned.

Road

Taxi stands and pick-up/drop-off points are located near station exits. Exact locations are to be confirmed.
