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.

    GAS and TTS all don’t have cross-border services. Here is it;
    SBST: 160 (170 terminate at Woodlands Int and operate by SMRT)
    SMRT: 950
    GAS: 430
    TTS: 440

      No. 170 should not duplicate 856 and 950.

    I went to Woodlands bus interchange 4 times but stil don’t have the service guide of bus 950. Any Particular reasons

    Svc 950 Should get a double decker bus. It’s really crowded during weekends especially the holidays.

      I’m waiting at Woodlands to go to JB,waiting for 950 almost an hour,what the hell is wrong with this bus,people already half dead walking ..idiotic

      You’re right. The company can simply register some Volvo B9TL and a few MAN A95 for SPAD

    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

      You try to complain to LTA about this one.. Svc 950 cant do anything at each checkpoint if both checkpoint is congested every weekends.. Weekdays no problem. I try before liao. Use your common sense. What you expect faster service? Don’t forget there is 170A which end only at Woodlands Train Checkpoint then continue back to Queen Street. 160 ply from Jurong East to loop JB Sentral , 170 from Queen Street to Larkin Terminal then 170X from Kranji MRT to JB Sentral..

      Take note 950 use only 15 registered bus with SPAD. 170 and 170X use only 45 registered bus with SPAD whereas 160 use only 15 to 20 registered bus with SPAD. Take note SPAD is from malaysia which allow bus to take passenger to JB leh.. What you want from LTA? LTA cannot do anything with SPAD. Only SMRT and SBS need to get bus to registered with SPAD.. All bus registered with SPAD is old bus model like first batch bus only.. You notice why new bus model is not allowed into malaysia even 170A use new bus model.
