Service CW3 is a cross-border route connecting the Taman Perling, Bukit Indah and Gelang Patah areas (within Johor) with Jurong East Bus Interchange in Singapore, via the Tuas Second Link crossing. The route is one of five regular cross-border bus services operating via the Tuas Second Link, along with Service CW4CW4SCW6 and CW7.

Within Johor, an additional Larkin branch route (CW3E) operates between CIQ Second Link and Larkin Terminal.

Second Link-plying CW services, inclusive of CW3, operate as a local bus while operating within Johor, hence serving at all en route bus stops. They do not stop at any bus stops in Singapore except the designated boarding point at Jurong East. Due to varying traffic conditions at the Tuas Second Link, travel times and waiting times may increase significantly when traffic congestion occurs.

Boarding Points:
  • Perling Mall: Car park outside shopping centre
  • Tuas CIQ & CIQ 2nd Link (Arrival / Departure): Designated bus boarding point
  • Jurong East: Private Bus Pick Up Point along Venture Avenue
Fares & Inter-Checkpoint Transfer:

At each checkpoint on the Singapore and Malaysian side of the border, passengers will have to alight and clear customs before boarding the bus again. When travelling between Tuas CIQ Complex and Sultan Abu Bakar CIQ Complex (“CIQ 2nd Link”) in either direction, commuters may board any Causeway Link bus (Service CW3CW4CW4SCW6, CW7) with a valid ticket. Commuters using the ManjaLink Card should tap their card upon entry.

With a valid ticket at Tuas Second Link, passengers travelling towards Jurong East can similarly board CW4 and CW4S, or board CW6 for Boon Lay at Tuas Second Link. Alternatively, passengers heading towards other destinations in JB can transfer to other bus services at CIQ Second Link, such as the (CW3E) Larkin branch to Larkin Terminal.

Special Departures:
  • Causeway Link CW3L: Perling Mall ↔ CIQ Second Link
    Supplementary trips from Perling Mall that terminate at CIQ Second Link and do not continue to Singapore. These trips sometimes operate with the route number CW3; the “L” is redundant as all passengers must alight at the checkpoint.

Miscellaneous Fare Information for Manjalink users

Manjalink users will be required to tap their card upon entering the bus, which includes re-boarding the bus at the various checkpoints.

As the ManjaLink card is loaded with values in Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), passengers boarding from Singapore and paying fares in Singapore Dollars (SGD) will be charged based on the prevailing exchange rate determined by ManjaLink. For example, the published ManjaLink fare for JB-bound CW3 is S$4.00, and as such when ManjaLink is used, 4.00×3.08= 12.32, thereby deducting RM12.40 from the card, as the Manjalink system rounds up the fare to the nearest 10 cents.

The prevailing exchange rate for ManjaLink is regularly updated and can be found on their website.
