Johor Bahru (October 18, 2023): In a significant stride toward eco-conscious public transportation, Handal Indah Sdn Bhd, operating under the brand Causeway Link, has introduced its inaugural fleet of electric buses on cross-border routes via the Johor–Singapore Causeway.
The introduction of these 12-meter electric buses onto routes CW3, CW4, and CW6 marks a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. A total of four electric vehicles (EVs) will be deployed initially, with more to be added in subsequent phases.
Causeway Link’s decision to embrace electric buses reflects its unwavering dedication to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable transportation in the region. With growing concerns about climate change, the transition to electric buses represents a vital step in reducing the carbon footprint of public transportation.

Highlighted feedback from randomly selected passengers who have ridden these electric buses underscores their comfort and convenience. The quiet operation and reduced vibrations create a serene atmosphere on board, enhancing the overall travel experience. USB charging ports are thoughtfully provided, offering passengers a convenient way to charge their mobile phones, especially during heavy traffic along the causeway. It’s a highly appreciated and practical facility.
This initiative by Causeway Link not only showcases its dedication to eco-conscious transportation but also sets a shining example for the industry and the broader public transportation sector.
