Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be reducing Singapore’s toll charges for cars, buses and taxis at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints from March 2, 2020.

The move was in response to Malaysia’s reduction of toll charges for cars, buses and taxis at the Sultan Iskandar Building Toll Plaza (Causeway) and Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza (Second Link) on Feb. 1.

Under the revised toll charges, cars will pay S$0.80 at the Woodlands Checkpoint from March 2 onwards, down from S$1.00.

Revised toll charges

Singapore’s revised toll charges are as follows:

In addition, starting from Feb. 10, LTA will be rolling out a new digital service to enable owners of public service vehicles, such as buses and taxis, registered on Asean countries to apply for the Asean Public Service Vehicle Permit (PSVP) via the OneMotoring website.

LTA said the initiative will make it more convenient for vehicle owners, and add to the suite of digital services currently available for foreign-registered vehicles, such as online application of VEP/Autopass Cards for foreign-registered cars and motorcycles.

The application must be submitted at least seven working days before driving into Singapore, LTA added.

When online payment for and delivery of VEP/autopass cards are available, vehicle owners can look forward to even greater convenience.

Vehicle owners can refer to the online video guides on the OneMotoring website on the use of these digital services.

Those who require assistance can approach LTA’s Service Centre at Johor Bahru, Malaysia, where digital kiosks are available for motorists to submit their applications.

You'd think I'd be happy about this. I would, under most circumstances. 

But right now, I think any measure that makes crossing borders easier or cheaper is unwise. 

Importation of fresh cases from China is less problematic now. But remember there is local transmission in Malaysia. 

That's all I'll say. It works both ways. I think both populations should be protected by not intermingling too much. 

Only my opinion.
