In a report by Bernama, the reduced charges for vehicles leaving Singapore are as follows;

  • Cars (Current charges: SGD$3.80, new charges: SGD$1.00)
  • Vans or light goods vehicles (Current charges: SGD$5.80, new charges: SGD$1.50)
  • Heavy goods vehicles (Current charges: SGD$7.70, new charges: SGD$2.00)
  • Taxis (Current charges: SGD$1.90, new charges: SGD$0.50)
  • Buses (Current charges: SGD$3.10, new charges: SGD$0.80)

This toll-free entry was decided in light of the Malaysian government’s abolishment of the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) toll plaza operations, which was effective on 1st January.

Malaysian transport and logistic providers have welcomed the decision as well, with the Pan-Malaysian Lorry Owners Association’s president Anthony Tan saying that the move will improve cross-border trade between Malaysia and Singapore on top of reducing the cost of sending goods to and from Singapore.

So, will you be travelling to Singapore more often now that the charges have been reduced?
