      Don't think so.. I think they've been testing it on EWL about 2 weeks already..

    • The free rides have C151B trains. In fact, the entire fleet was C151B trains, from Tuas Link to Gul Circle stations.

    • And yeah, everything revert to normal today, with East West Line trains running only to Joo Koon station. No signal change at Pioneer.

    • The station announcements are in Ang Moh accent, not local accent. A bit like the Google Translate Ang Moh lady voice.

      Hi, I would like to clarify that this "terminate at Lakeside" thing is fake. It's a misconception. I just board a train that would supposedly end at Lakeside, but when the train arrived at Lakeside, it went on towards Pasir Ris. And the STARIS and information panel changed accordingly. As to why they say the train will "terminate at Lakeside", I'm not sure what's the reason. But I believe it's just a glitch. Nothing much.

      If the television screen outside at the platform say the train goes to Pasir Ris, means the train goes to Pasir Ris. Doesn't matter if the train inside say it will terminate at Lakeside. That one is probably just an error. Technical difficulty. The train will still go to Pasir Ris after Lakeside. Don't worry.

    • 「跨境巴士服务」大士或开辟新路线方便乘客进入新山

      虽然大士连路地铁站距离新马第二通道不远,但因为没有设跨境巴士服务的停靠站,所以乘客无法使用大士关卡进入马来西亚。

      陆路交通管理局表示,已收到一些巴士业者有意经营大士一带的新跨境巴士路线计划书,目前还在检讨中。

      大士关卡的设计只允许车辆或巴士驶入,为安全起见,移民与关卡局禁止人们徒步进入关卡。

      虽然关卡距离刚启用的大士连路地铁站不远,但地铁站已竖起告示牌,提醒人们不能从地铁站步行到大士关卡进入新山。

      乘客现在只能在裕廊东或文礼地铁站附近,乘搭跨境巴士使用大士关卡。有乘客反映,希望大士一带设有跨境巴士停靠站。

      陆路交通管理局答复本台询问时说,目前经由第二通道前往新山的共有三条跨境巴士路线,全是由马来西亚新山汉达英达公司经营的。

      至于公司会不会开辟往返大士和新山的跨境路线,公司表示,目前还在等待有关当局的正式批准,现阶段无法给予任何回应。

      本地两家提供跨境服务的公共巴士业者SMRT和新捷运则不愿回应。

      另外一家本地私人巴士业者星运旅游表示,有意经营一条从波那维斯达地铁站,经由大士和第二通道,前往振林山巴士总站的跨境巴士路线,但具体详情不便透露。

      有业者指出,大士工业区拥有不少从新山前来我国打工的马来西亚员工,因此相信这一带对跨境巴士服务的需求强劲。有了大士跨境巴士服务,将能解决乘客舟车劳顿的问题。

    • [Cross Border Bus Services] Tuas may have new bus services going to Johor Bahru

      Tuas Link MRT Station is located near to the Singapore-Malaysia Second Link, but because there is no bus stop for cross border bus services, commuters are unable to use the Tuas Checkpoint to enter Malaysia.

      LTA say that it has received proposals from a few bus operators to operate new cross-border bus services at Tuas. It is currently evaluating the proposals.

      The design of Tuas Checkpoint only allows cars and buses to enter. Due to safety consideration, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority forbids people from walking into the checkpoint.

      Although the checkpoint is not far from the recently opened Tuas Link MRT Station, there is a notice at the MRT Station, reminding people that they cannot walk from the MRT Station to the Tuas Checkpoint to enter Johor Bahru.

      Currently, commuters can only take cross-border buses at Jurong East or Boon Lay MRT Stations, to use the Tuas Checkpoint. Some commuters hope that Tuas area could have bus stop for cross-border buses.

      When asked by the reporter, LTA say that currently, there are three cross-border bus routes using the Second Link to enter Johor Bahru, and they are all operated by Malaysia's Handal Indah Sdn Bhd.

      As to whether Handal Indah Sdn Bhd will open cross-border bus routes between Tuas and Johor Bahru, the company say that it is currently waiting for the official permits from the relevant authorities, and it is not able to provide any response at the moment.

      Two local cross-border bus operators SMRT and SBS Transit do not wish to provide any response.

      Meanwhile, a local private bus operator Transtar Travel say that it has intentions to operate a cross-border bus route from Buona Vista MRT Station to Gelang Patah Bus Terminal via Tuas and Second Link, but the details could not be revealed.

      A industry player noted that Tuas Industrial Estate has many Malaysia workers coming from Johor Bahru to work in Singapore, thus it is believed that there is strong demand in that area for cross-border bus service. With cross-border bus service in Tuas, this would solve the problem of commuters feeling tired from all the traveling.

    • Thanks. Thats good news. All we know is we have to wait for news then. I have a feeling that Causeway Link will get the route, but the authorities are srsly taking a long time to respond so like it's really bad for people who really need the connection :)
