The recent move to liberalise the ruling on cross-border Singapore-Johor transport is a good action that will further encourage people to travel to both countries.

Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) director for Singapore, Zalizam Zakaria said:"To me, it is a good sign and a win-win situation for both parties.

"It will be easier for Malaysians to come here, and the same goes for Singaporeans visiting Malaysia.

"The free flow will encourage more cross border visits, especially if, it is for a day trip or such," he said when asked to comment on the move.

Effective July, taxis plying both sides of the Singapore-Malaysia border will be able to pick-up and drop-off passengers anywhere in their respective countries.

The implementation date of the taxi rule exchange who agreed at the eighth working meeting of the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Ministerial Committee for Iskandar Malaysia here on March 30.

Currently, cross-border taxis are allowed to pick up and drop off passengers at just two places, Ban San Street near Bugis in Singapore, and Pasar Bakti terminal in Johor.

There are some 400 authorised cabs which offer cross-border services -- 200 in Singapore and 200 in Malaysia.
