Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on Use of Senior Citizens' Card at Signalised Pedestrian Crossings Using Green Man Plus Scheme

20 Mar 2018 In Parliament

Ms Joan Pereira asked the Minister for Transport 

a.     in the past three years, what is the average number of seniors who tap their senior citizen’s card at signalised pedestrian crossings in using the Green Man Plus scheme; and

b.     what are the plans to raise awareness of this scheme to get more elderly to tap their card.

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

1.     The average monthly number of Green Man Plus activations by seniors has increased from 53,200 in 2015 to 69,600 in 2017.

2.     The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will continue to promote the scheme through exhibitions and public events. LTA will also work with grassroots leaders to reach out to seniors in their constituencies to increase awareness of the scheme.
