Route History

Bus Service 160 is a cross-border route connecting Jurong East, Bukit Panjang and Kranji MRT to JB Sentral via the Causeway. The route plies long stretches of Bukit Batok Road and Woodlands Road, providing fast connections between the residential towns of Jurong East, Bukit Panjang and Woodlands Centre.

Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, travel times and waiting times may increase significantly when jams occur. This bus service occasionally diverts via Woodlands Ave 3 / Woodlands Centre Road towards Johor Bahru when Woodlands Road is severely congested.

From 2300hrs onwards, buses leaving Jurong East Interchange will terminate at JB Sentral Bus Terminal along Jln Jim Quee.

Cross-Border Procedures

At each checkpoint, passengers have to alight and clear customs before boarding the bus again. When crossing the causeway between Woodlands Checkpoint and Johore Bahru Checkpoint in either direction, commuters may board any SBS Transit bus (either 160, 170 or 170X). However, when leaving from a checkpoint, commuters must re-board Service 160 after clearing customs if they wish to continue their journey and not constitute a transfer.

Tapping out from the bus at a checkpoint will suspend a journey and allow the resumption of a journey afterwards. Cash paying passengers should retain their ticket as proof or payment, and produce it when re-boarding buses at checkpoints.
