Management of Jurong Island Pass – Online Pass System (OPS)

31 Jan 2019
Ref No.: 310119 (1) UEN: S97SS0046G Dear Valued ASPRI Members, Management of Jurong Island Pass – Online Pass System (OPS) Since March 2018, Jurong Island (JI) passes will be de-activated if there are no movement into JI, within 90 days for Singaporeans (NRIC card holders) and; within 30 days for work-permit holders (all other ID types). With the start of the new year, ASPRI would like to re-cap on the following 2-ways in which Company Main Account (CMAs) and Company Sub Account (CSAs) can manage this new way forward. 1. Using the Online Pass System (OPS) Prior to entry to JI, personnel can contact CMA representative to carry out re-activation in the OPS. The CMA would have received a system-generated email notification to inform on the pass that has been de-activated, and the instructions for them to carry out the re-activation process. CSAs who are given OPS account access are also able to re-activate their pass in the system by themselves. Re-activation can only be done upon de-activation and not before it has been de-activated. (For more information, kindly refer to illustrative step-by-step guide User Guide attached.) 2. Pass Office Counter Affected personnel have to enter JI personally and head to the Pass Office Counter to carry out the re-activation. Personnel going in personally are advised to expect queues with corresponding waiting times.

High influx of Heavy Vehicles during peak hours at Checkpoint

26 Oct 2018
Ref No.: 261018(2) UEN: S97SS0046G Dear Valued ASPRI Members, High influx of Heavy Vehicles during peak hours at Checkpoint JTC have noticed a surge in the number of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) clearing checkpoint during peak hours (6.30am to 8.30am) in the past 1 month. As a result, we are faced with heavy traffic at the checkpoint nearly every morning. We are currently investigating who are the HGV sponsors and will be contacting them soon to understand the cause of high traffic movements and whether they can adjust their delivery timings. We seek your assistance and inform your suppliers/sub-contractors to avoid goods delivery during morning peak (6.30am to 8.30am) as it will affect the other employees getting to work on time. On JTC’s end, they have maintained the opening of all lanes/checking bays during peak hours, and have been diverting HGVs to PDL for clearances as measures to help ease the traffic. During off peak hours, they limit the closure of lane to only 1 at any point of time for the work activities to carry on. We seek your cooperation in disseminating the message to your staffs, supplier and contractors.

Replacement of Mobile vehicle verification with auto vehicle verification

21 Aug 2018
Ref No.: 210818 (1) UEN: S97SS0046G Dear Valued ASPRI Members, Replacement of Mobile vehicle verification with auto vehicle verification As part of JTC’s efforts to increase productivity and drive for automation, JTC will be introducing a new Vehicle Automatic Clearance System (VACs) to augment the existing wireless Mobile Verification (MV). VACs will bring about faster vehicular clearance and reduction in manpower required. Please see attached brochure on VACs.

Drivers clearing at PDL Arrival Halls A to D will be required to perform self-clearance at the VACs kiosk. Phase 2 will include the rest of the checkpoint and is targeted to take place in Dec 2018.

To streamline the pass application process at the STP Office, it would adopt a new self-enrolment kiosk to facilitate faster registration for STP. This self-enrolment kiosk is expected to facilitate faster making of short term passes with lesser manpower. Please refer to the attached guide (SEK Steps) on how to use the new self-enrolment system. To further ease the congestion at the STP Office, they would also like to bring attention to the following changes with regard to the processing of expired Long Term Pass (“LTP”). This has been shared with the Company Main Account/ Company Sub Account (CMA/CSA) holders (refer to attached email sent on 18 July 2018). With effect from 23 July 2018, the STP Office no longer accepts the return of expired LTP during office hours i.e. 0800 hrs to 1730 hrs (Monday to Friday). All holders of expired LTP holders requiring STP will be directed to the LTP Office* at Pier 20 during the above timing to return their expired LTP and process their visitor pass. Once the new STP Office re-opens on 7 August 2018, the STP Office will cease to process expired LTP entirely. All expired LTP holders will need to process their expired passes at the LTP Office during office hours only. JTC seek your continued understanding and co-operation on the above. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact Mr Kalaichelvan PONNUSAMY at Kalaichelvan_PONNUSAMY@jtc.gov.sg. * Opening hours for LTP Office: 0800hrs to 1730hrs. (Monday to Friday) [CLICK HERE] for Email Circular to CMA [CLICK HERE] for Re-opening of Short Term Pass Office [CLICK HERE] for SEK Steps

Changes to the Jurong Island Bus Service (JIBS)

17 Apr 2018
Ref No.: 170418 (1) UEN: S97SS0046G Dear Valued ASPRI Members, Changes to the Jurong Island Bus Service (JIBS) On behalf of JTC, we would like to inform you on the changes to the Jurong Island Bus Service (JIBS). JTC’s existing contract for the Jurong Island Bus Service (JIBS) expires in July 18, and they are in the midst of calling tender for a new contract. As JTC have reiterated during various engagement platforms (e.g. SORT/TORT, JI Community Seminar, networking events), the JIBS ridership remains very low today since the JI companies are slow to switching over to JIBS despite the substantially enhanced service since July 2015. The lack of critical mass has resulted in JTC incurring a cost subsidy of up to $20 per passenger, which is not sustainable. To better manage and optimise resources, please be informed that JTC will making 2 changes to JIBS: JTC will remove ALL JIBS off-peak fixed schedule trips from end July 2018, and replace it with on-demand bus services (ODBS). Currently during off-peak hours, buses run on fixed schedules and ply unnecessarily long routes, while serving an average of only 5 persons per bus. The new ODBS will operate within JI and only up to JI checkpoint. Through a booking system, commuters will be able to request pick-ups/drop-offs from JI companies’ main entrances or from the JI checkpoint. The flexible routings and timings will offer a shorter waiting time and more convenience than the fixed bus routes today. However, this also means during off-peak hours, commuters going into/out of JI will need to take public bus 98 to/from JI Checkpoint. Between late April to July 2018, JTC will be conducting a trial of ODBS in order to socialise commuters to the new model. During the trial period, some of the existing off-peak fixed schedule trips may be removed. 2. JTC will also adjust the existing fixed schedule of JIBS peak hour trips from end July 2018. More details on the above will be conveyed to the Jurong Island Community in due course. We seek your cooperation to share the above information to your employees, and your support and understanding as JTC make the transition to the new JIBS contract.
