Advance Coach AC7 is a cross-border route connecting 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, the service was part of 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.

Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, travel times and frequencies may increase significantly when jams occur. At each checkpoint, rides will be suspended and 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).

Fare: S$2.20 (ez-link) or S$2.50 (Cash) from Singapore, RM $3.00 from Malaysia.

Fleet: AC7′s fleet comprises a full fleet of Yutong ZK6118HGA buses.

    Usually i take AC 7 and the driver all very nice and care for passenger. This morning i took AC 7 bus no.PC122B. A chinese driver scold one aunty who press bell for her stop at northpoint. Maybe the aunty press bell a bit late due to her old age.. the driver never respect for aunty for the age and shout infront of all. I think should improve the way of handling passenger. Give respect take respect!

    It happen to me whereby ur chinese driver wanted me to pay for a child. Even a child ezlink card doesnt approved on tap machine meaning its not a student pass..its a child concession. Unless its a student pass n required to pay i will be understandable.Told the driver before my daughter is 6y/o n he insisted me to pay.Even smrt n sbs has no charge with the child concession,it feels irritated for them n me too. Please get it right children concession and student pass!!!
