Singapore and Malaysia signed an agreement on July 30, 2020 to resume the project to build the 4km mass rapid transit system. The RTS Link is also to include the construction of a new immigration, customs and quarantine complex facility next to the station at Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru, Malaysia, and will house both Malaysian and Singaporean immigration, customs and quarantine facilities within the same building. The link is expected to cater to an estimated 10,000 commuters per hour per direction via Johor Bahru to Singapore, and to ease the congestion at the Malaysia-Singapore Causeway.

Upon completion by end of 2026, the connectivity will also bring economic benefit to both cities and improve the relationship between Malaysia and Singapore. Meanwhile, the project will directly create 1,500 job opportunities which also support occupations such as food and beverage services, entertainment and the like.
