Service CW3 (Larkin Branch) is a branch route of CW3, serving within Johor only. Introduced on 19th April 2015, the route plies between Larkin Bus Terminal and CIQ Second Link, via Taman Perling (Layang/SK Taman Perling 3) and AEON Bukit Indah. The Larkin branch route operates with the same route number CW3 (occasionally CW3E on electronic display signs), but buses will indicate “Larkin” or “CIQ 2nd Link” on plastic destinations signs as a sure way of identifying the CW3 Larkin Branch.

With a valid ticket at CIQ 2nd Link, passengers travelling towards Singapore can similarly board CW3, CW4 or CW4S to Jurong East, or board CW6 for Boon Lay at Tuas Second Link. Alternatively, passengers heading from Singapore to Johor can enjoy a free transfer to this service with a valid ticket.

Boarding Points:

  • Larkin Terminal: —
  • AEON Bukit Indah: Bus stop along Jalan Indah 15/2

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, 4.00×2.98= 12.32, thereby deducting RM12.40 from the card, as the Manjalink system rounds up the fare to the nearest 10 cents.
