Long time ago I took the SG-JB bus to Larkin Sentral often. Depart from Victoria Street near Bugis. My poly friends and myself go there eat,  watch movie, buy illegal CD/DVD. Very cheap back then.

I also took the KTM train with my wife and children cos it is a first for all of us. My kids requested it. 

We never see the things Soya mentioned.

quite ok lei.

If you take it all the way from Queen St, it is a long ride.

From Woodland CIQ, I will take whatever bus leaves immediately.

I think another route is from Newton hawker centre.

the bus drivers are 2F2F one, should be very fast. :XD:

good thing about buses is they can cut queue on causeway.

I know it has buses going to Changi Airport, Kranji mrt station, Newton Circus, Jurong East bus terminal, etc.

Yeah, their bus drivers are very good. Reach the destination in no time.

S$320 million in contracts awarded for works on Johor Bahru-Singapore RTS Link

Nine contracts worth about RM1 billion (S$320 million) were recently awarded for systems works on the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link, said operator RTS Operations. 

Of the nine contracts, four are for core systems, with China’s CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co awarded the contract for rolling stock while German firm Siemens Mobility won the contract for signalling system and platform screen doors. Malaysia’s Sapura Rail Systems was awarded the contract for the communications and integrated supervisory control systems. 

The remaining non-core system contracts were awarded for trackwork, traction power supply, uninterruptible power supply, automatic fare collection, as well as depot equipment and service vehicles. 

A systems consultancy contract had also earlier been awarded to engineering firm CH2M Services to deliver consultancy services for the design, manufacturing, delivery, testing and commissioning of all systems for the RTS line, RTS Operations said. 

The RTS Link is expected to cost around RM10 billion (S$3.25 billion), with Singapore bearing 61 per cent of the cost.

Do you believe folks who motorbike daily across the causeway will continue to do so in spite of the RTS service?

There is a lot of commuters that do not rely on motorbike.

When the border opens, go to JB at 10 am.  You will see a lot of ppl walking on causeway towards Singapore.
