Private bus operator Advance Coach is set to launch yet another new cross-border bus service into Johor Bahru (JB), this time from Yishun bus interchange, effective Wednesday 15 December 2010.

Buses for the new service AC7 will depart every 20 minutes and will ply Yishun Avenue 2, Yishun Avenue 7, Sembawang Road (Sembawang Shopping Centre), Sembawang Way (Sembawang MRT station) and Woodlands Avenue 9 before calling at the immigration checkpoints and City Square Mall in JB.

A flat fare of S$2 is charged in Singapore. Payment by ez-link cards are accepted. In JB, passengers can opt to pay RM2 in cash, but those using their ez-link cards will still be charged S$2. At Yishun Interchange, service AC7 shares the boarding berth queue with SMRT services 171 and 812, near the passenger service counter.

Operating hours for service AC7:
From Yishun Interchange:
0545 – 2330 hours (Mon-Sat), 0600 – 2330 hours (Sun & P.H.)
From Kotaraya II Terminal:
0500 – 2350 hours (Mon-Sat), 0540 – 2350 hours (Sun & P.H.)

The launch of service AC7 marks the entry of Advance Coach as the latest player in the regular public bus service sector. It follows the earlier introduction of Transtar’s cross-border services TS1 and TS8 from Changi Airport and Resorts World Sentosa respectively.
