MAKING PUBLIC TRANSPORT THE CHOICE MODE
img_land_Public-Transport

To meet increasing travel demand in future, a higher proportion of our travel needs will have to be met by public transport. It is therefore vital to make public transport a choice mode of transport for Singaporeans.

The Land Transport Master Plan 2013 set out goals to be achieved by 2030. A key goal is to increase the peak hour public transport mode share to 75%.

We are on track to meet this target as we crossed 67% last year.

To make public transport the choice mode of transport, we are enhancing our public transport system to make it more attractive to Singaporeans and a viable alternative to the car. By strengthening the integration of our public transport system, commuters should be able to benefit from:

  • Seamless and convenient transfers
  • Easily accessible services
  • Reliable and comfortable travel journeys
  • Competitive journey time relative to cars
  • Affordable fares
