Bukit Chagar RTS station is a planned elevated terminal station in Johor Bahru, Johor. The station will be located north of Johor Bahru Sentral and forms the Malaysian terminus of the Johor Bahru–Singapore Rapid Transit System. It is scheduled to be open by the end of 2024. When opened, 60000 additional commuters will be able to cross the Causeway during peak hours.[1]

History[edit]

The Bukit Chagar station was announced on 15 September 2015 during the Iskandar Malaysia Comprehensive Development Plan Open Day in a public poll. The other three options were Tanjung Puteri, JB Sentral 1 and JB Sentral 2.[2][3]

The Bukit Chagar RTS terminal station will have its own Customs and Immigration clearance facilities and will not be sharing with existing facilities at the Sultan Iskandar Building complex.[4]
