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.
