Driving to Malaysia via the Second Link during off-peak periods has gotten a lot cheaper.
This price revision has been effective since last Sunday, 1 April, and will affect all vehicles—except motorcycles—leaving and entering the country.
The off-peak hours are for both arrival and departure, and they fall between 11pm to 5am, and 10am to 3pm. During these timings, car owners will only need to pay S$1.30, while taxi drivers will only need to pay $1.
For vans, light goods vehicles and buses, their toll will be $1.50. Heavy goods vehicles, on the other hand, are only required to pay $2.

The reduced toll charges for the Second Link were first announced by LTA in February this year. The reduced fees are also in line with Singapore’s long-standing policy of matching the toll adjustments from Malaysia.
By adjusting off-peak toll charges, LTA hopes road users will plan their journey in advance and avoid travelling during peak hours to and from Malaysia.
What do you think of this move? Will you be travelling to Malaysia more frequently during non-peak hours?
