The Singapore-Johore Express is a cross-border bus operator running a single bus route, plying between Queen Street Bus Terminal and Larkin Bus Terminal in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The popular route shares similar terminating points with the local Service 170 and Causeway Link CW2, incorporating a long express sector between Queen Street and Woodlands CIQ Complex, as well as between JB CIQ Complex and Larkin Terminal.
Due to the Malaysia Movement Control Order (MCO), SJE will be suspended for the duration of the MCO period, starting 18 March 2020.

The Singapore-Johore Express (SJE) is a cross-border route connecting Queen Street Bus Terminal to Johor Bahru City Centre and Larkin Bus Terminal, via Woodlands Checkpoint crossing. The route is one of three regular cross-border bus services operating out of Queen Street, along with Service 170 and Causeway Link CW2.
The route duplicates the Causeway Link CW2 entirely, with the exception that CW2 serves en-route stops in Johor Bahru while SJE does not. Service 170 on the other hand, plies a local route between Queen Street and Woodlands CIQ Complex via Bukit Timah and Upper Bukit Timah, and as a result, has a significantly longer journey time. Crossing the border, Causeway Link offers greater flexibility with passengers able to board any Causeway Link bus across the causeway after clearing immigration (Causeway Link operates a total of 3 routes).
Due to varying traffic conditions at the Causeway, travel times and waiting times may increase significantly when jams occur. The route does not call at en-route bus stops in Singapore and Malaysia, providing fast connections daily between its four stops at Queen Street, Larkin, and both land checkpoints.
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 Woodlands CIQ Complex and Johor Bahru CIQ Complex in either direction, commuters can re-board any Singapore-Johore Express bus with a valid ticket.
Charges section fares. Only Singapore currency is accepted when boarding the bus in Singapore, and Malaysian currency is accepted when boarding from Malaysia.
