Senai Airport Hails New JB-S'pore Bus Service To Secondlink CIQ Complex14 Feb 2006

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- Flight passengers and frequent travellers between Johor Bahru and Singapore can now have greater convenience with the newly-launched express bus service to the SecondLink or Linkedua, says Senai International Airport. 

The five-times-a-day service starts from the Sultan Ismail International Airport, also known as Senai International Airport, and ends at the CIQ (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine) Complex at the SecondLink after a stopover at the City Lounge at Hentian Sentral Kotaraya Complex in the heart of Johor Bahru and vice versa. The fare costs RM8 each way. 

After disembarkation at the CIQ Complex for immigration clearance purposes, passengers can proceed to take a connecting CW3 (Causeway Link 3) bus to Jurong East. 

The fare from the CIQ complex to Jurong East is RM2.60 while the corresponding return fare from Jurong East to the CIQ complex is S$3.00. 

This service provides another option for passengers departing for Singapore and is modelled on the existing shuttle service to and from the airport and Singapore, said Kennedy Ayu, the airport's general manager.

Passengers on board the 49-seater express bus can also purchase bus tickets from a ticket machine on the bus. 

The connecting bus to Jurong East runs every half an hour from the pick-up point after the CIQ immigration clearance. 

Upon reaching Jurong East, passengers will have many options to reach other destinations, which includes taking the MRT or other transport options such as bus services provided by local bus operators.
