Johor Bahru, 17th July 2020 – R&F Mall Johor Bahru is officially on Causeway Link bus travel map with three new routes released. Handal Indah will be adding new drop-off and pick-up points at R&F Mall on their 3 routes, namely Causeway Link S1, MV2, and LM1. These three new routes will be officially launched by 17th July 2020.

The official launch of all three routes is a joint-effort of both R&F Development and Handal Indah who truly support ‘Cuti-cuti Malaysia’ by adding more drop-off points on the routes, hence allowing Johoreans and tourists to visit most of the shopping malls and heritage sites in JB city, as well as Iskandar pilot zone area including Puteri Harbour and Legoland Malaysia. When the border is open, it will further benefit Singaporeans too – which they can enjoy 1-day family leisure and shopping trip from Legoland to R&F Mall as well as JB central.

The three routes have been confirmed as below:

  • S1: JB Sentral – R&F Mallà Plaza Pelangi – Holiday Plaza Mallà KSL City – JB Sentral
  • MV2: JB Sentral – R&F Mall – Mid Valley Southkey – Istana Pelangi – Flat Stulang Laut – Menara Cyberport – Berjaya Waterfront – Foon Yew High School – JB Sentral
  • LM1: JB Sentral – R&F Mall – Gelang Patahà Legoland Malaysia – Puteri Harbour – Larkin Sentral – JB Sentral

What makes the experience even more enjoyable? Passengers get to receive R&F Mall shopping vouchers! More details on the mechanism to be announced later.

“R&F Development is happy and we welcome the launch of these three routes,” said Richard Hu, Chairman of R&F Group Malaysia, “We believe this partnership with Causeway Link will not only benefit the locals but also help in boosting the tourism industry in Johor, be it to domestic tourists or internationals.”

“We are excited to introduce these new routes to our commuters. Now Johoreans can add mall-hopping to their list of activities as Causeway Link buses cover most of the shopping complexes in JB centre,” said Ms. Fang, Deputy Executive Director of Handal Indah Group of Companies

With the introduction of the new routes, passengers can be connected to various places in Johor Bahru such as JB central, Legoland Malaysia Resort, Puteri Harbour, and different shopping malls, with affordable price from RM1 (JB Sentral – R&F Mall) to RM4.50 (R&F Mall – Legoland Malaysia).

Mr. Hu added, “Since our arrival at Johor Bahru six years ago, R&F Princess Cove has been dedicating in making this CBD area a more comfortable, and premium living area that full of lifestyle and convenient facilities. We continuously work with local authorities and education institutions to promote business, collaborations, and even arts and cultures.”

Aside from the newly added bus routes, R&F Princess Cove had also built a direct link bridge connecting the R&F Mall and the Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) making the walking distance in only 8 mins to reach the checkpoint to Singapore, all via the fully sheltered & guarded link bridge. The bridge has also won a Special Recognition for Public Facility during the 6th Annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) in 2019.

The R&F Group is well-known in bringing in new developments to the state, the first international Opera House - Permaisuri Zarith Sofiah Opera House was also launched by R&F not long ago in January 2020, personally officiated by His Majesty The Sultan of Johor and Her Majesty The Permaisuri of Johor.
