Service 950 is a cross-border route connecting Woodlands Regional Centre, Marsiling MRT and Woodlands Town Centre with the border town of Johor Bahru in Malaysia. The route experiences high demand throughout the day and is SMRT’s only cross-border service.

Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, travel times and frequencies may increase significantly when traffic congestion occur.

Despite being a wheelchair-accessible service, wheelchairs are not allowed beyond Woodlands Checkpoint. Hence, wheelchair-bound passengers are currently unable to use this service to cross the border.

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 Johor Bahru Checkpoint in either direction, commuters may re-board Bus Service 950 to resume their ride.

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.

Fare: Only Singapore currency is accepted. Charges basic distance fares. See Bus Fares.

Route Limitations

Only SPAD-registered single-deck buses are allowed on cross border routes. Currently, only some MAN NL323Fs are SPAD-registered. In accordance with Malaysian regulations, buses must carry relevant documents, fitted with a third brake light at the rear, and attached with Malaysian stickers dictating legal speed limit. Previously, some Mercedes-Benz O405s and OC500LEs were SPAD-registered as well.

    LTA should consider ceasing the operations of Svc 950 from SMRT since the buses seem to take ages to arrive at the checkpoints or let SBS Transit run the service since they have a better track record managing bus services anyway rather than SMRT who can’t even manage their trains efficiently so what can we passengers expect from their bus service although it has the shortest route amongst all the cross border bus services
