Service CW4 is a cross-border route connecting the Pontian, Pekan Nanas 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 CW3, CW4S, CW6 and CW7, and the longest among them, with a full route distance of 67.5km.
Second Link plying CW services, inclusive of CW4, 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.

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 CW4 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.
