Cross Border Bus Service AC7 connects Yishun, Sembawang Rd, Sembawang MRT, Woodlands Ave 9 and Marsiling to Sultan Iskandar CIQ, the customs checkpoint in Johor Bahru. Introduced on Wednesday, 15 December 2010 and operated by Advance Coach, the service was part of a bilateral Singapore & Malaysia agreement to improve transit links between both countries. Formerly terminating at Kotaraya II Terminal, it was shortened to JB CIQ following the closure of the terminal in November 2014.
Starting from Yishun Bus Interchange, AC7 duplicates the route of Bus Service 858 up to Woodlands Ave 9, serving Chong Pang, Sembawang Rd (Sembawang Shopping Centre), Sembawang MRT, Woodlands Ave 7 & Gambas Ave (near Seagate and Woodlands Loop). It then continues west along Woodlands Ave 9/Riverside Rd/Admiralty Rd, serving Republic Polytechnic and housing/industrial estates around Marsiling before crossing the border to Johor Bahru.
Advance Coach operated the service with high-floor Yutong ZK6118HGA city buses in a purple livery. From 18 March 2020, the service was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying Malaysia Movement Control Order. While most public bus services resumed on 1 May 2022, Bus Service AC7 only resumed operations on 19 May 2022, this time operated by Ridewell Travel using low-floor Yutong ZK6126HGA city buses.
Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, journey times and frequencies may increase significantly when jams occur. At each checkpoint, passengers have to alight and clear customs before boarding the bus again. Upon reboarding, passengers will be required to show proof of payment (issued receipt).
MRT Stations Served
Ridewell Travel presently operates a fleet of Yutong ZK6126HGA buses on AC7. These buses were previously owned/operated by Woodlands Transport.
Advance Coach formerly deployed a fleet of Yutong ZK6118HGA buses for AC7, in a purple livery.
