The RTS Project

The Rapid Transit System Link (RTS Link) is a railway shuttle link approximately 4km in length connecting two stations – one in Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru, Malaysia and the other in Woodlands, Singapore.

The link will be a modern Light Rail Transit (LRT) system that will provide a high volume, fast and efficient transportation system between the two stations.

The link will be integrated with public transport systems at both stations, providing an alternative means of transportation that will help alleviate the congestion at the existing Causeway.

The link will have a capacity of 10,000 passengers per hour, per direction.

As an international link between Malaysia and Singapore, the RTS Link Project includes the building of a new Immigration, Customs and Quarantine (ICQ) facility next to the station at Bukit Chagar. Similarly, the RTS Link Station in Woodlands North in Singapore will also have Customs, Immigration and Quarantine facilities. The Malaysian ICQ and Singaporean CIQ facilities will be co-located within the same building. This will allow the entire immigration process of leaving and entering both countries to be completed at the departing station.
