A new KTM Shuttle Train from Johor Bahru to Singapore has started operating from JB Sentral Station to Woodlands Station (Shuttle Tebrau) from the 1st July 2015 and will replace all KTMB Intercity Trains from Johor Bahru to Singapore.
Now, if you are travelling from Malaysia to Singapore by train, all trains will now terminate at JB Sentral Railway Station in Johor Bahru.
You can then decide if you want to continue your journey into Singapore by one of the new shuttle trains or by regular buses that cross over the Causeway into Singapore.
From 17th January 2016, there are twelve trains a day that will travel over to Singapore.
The first shuttle train from JB Sentral to Woodlands leaves at 05.30am in the morning and the last train is at 10.15pm.
The trip over the Causeway takes just 5 minutes and these new shuttle services are to help with the congestion at the borders between Malaysia and Singapore, so will be used mainly by commuting workers going to and from Singapore for work.
Early reports say that these services are very popular with commuters, as they can save time compared with the other congested land border crossings.
Immigration procedures are carried out at JB Sentral for stamping out of Malaysia and at Woodlands Station where you get your passport stamped in to Singapore.
New Timetable valid from 17th January 2016 :
|Shuttle Service||Departure Time||Arrival Time|
One way fares for these trains cost 5 MYR for both Adults and Children when leaving from JB and 5 SGD when travelling from Singapore.
Each train operates with 320 seats, so if you want to get a seat, you are advised to book ahead.
