Route History

Service CW3S is a supplementary route connecting Taman Ungku Tun Aminah (TUTA), Bukit Indah and Gelang Patah within Johor Bahru with the Sultan Abu Bakar CIQ Complex (more commonly referred to as CIQ Second Link). The route compliments its parent Service CW3 but does not cross the border to Singapore. Passengers can transfer to other cross-border bus services (Service CW3, CW4, CW4S, CW6) to Jurong East and Boon Lay. As a local bus route, buses will serve all en route bus stops along their route.

Through-ticketing is available to and from Singapore, i.e. tickets bought on this service are valid for connecting bus trips to Singapore, and vice-versa, passengers from Singapore with valid tickets can transfer to this service at CIQ 2nd Link.

This bus service operates on Weekdays only (except Singapore Public Holidays), as it caters primarily to those commuting to Singapore for work or school. Carpark facilities are available at Terminal TUTA or Sutera Mall. The published runtime of this service is 50 minutes. On Weekends and Singapore PHs, SL1 operates the same route while additionally calling at AEON Bukit Indah.


Charges section fares. ManjaLink Card payment is accepted on this bus service. Only Malaysian currency is accepted as the route does not enter Singapore; however passengers boarding from Singapore (CW3/CW4/CW4S/CW6) will be charged Singapore currency for a ticket which can be used for a free transfer to this service at CIQ Second Link.

Cash / ManjaLink Fares towards CIQ 2nd Link Cash / ManjaLink Fares towards TUTA
TUTA – Jurong East / Boon Lay: RM6.20
Sutera Mall – Jurong East / Boon Lay: RM6.00
Bukit Indah – Jurong East / Boon Lay: RM5.00
TUTA – CIQ Second Link: RM4.80

CW3S commonly utilizes city buses that are not registered for cross-border operations, as buses turn back at the CIQ complex without clearing customs.

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 MYR, for SGD fares passengers will be charged based on the prevailing exchange rate determined by Causeway Link. For example, the published ManjaLink fare for JB-bound CW3 is $4.00, and as such when ManjaLink is used, 4.00×2.98= 11.92, thereby deducting RM12.00 from the card, taking into consideration the Malaysian system of rounding cents.
