M-Bike set to reduce motorcycle jam at Causeway by half, says DPM Zahid

JOHOR BARU: The Secured Automated Clearance System for Malaysian Citizen Motorcyclists (M-Bike) will reduce motorcycle congestion at the Malaysia-Singapore entry points by 50 per cent, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. 

The system will start next month at 100 lanes at the Sultan Iskandar Building Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex at the Causeway and 50 lanes at the Sultan Abu Bakar CIQ Complex at the Second Link in Tanjung Kupang, Gelang Patah. 

"Because 60,000 motorcycles use the entry points daily, the Immigration Department has set up 50 M-Bike lanes going in and another 50 M-Bike lanes going out at the Causeway. 

"This system will significantly reduce congestion at peak periods when the time (to clear) the first motorcycle to the last motorcycle could take up to two hours," he told reporters after a walkabout at the Sultan Iskandar Building CIQ complex.

He said the M-Bike system reduces clearance time of each motorcycle from current 12 to 15 seconds to 8 seconds, and would be one of the security checks for riders and pillion riders. 

The system requires a motorcyclist to scan a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sticker attached to a Malaysian passport. Applications for M-Bike began since Oct 11 at M-Bike One Stop Centres at the two both checkpoints.
