Land Transport Authority: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Transport, which spearheads land transport developments in Singapore. It is the agency responsible for planning, designing, building and maintaining Singapore’s land transport infrastructure and systems.
Smart Urban Mobility solutions constitute one of the Strategic Smart Nation Projects. The Ministry of Transport (MOT) and LTA announced in November that autonomous scheduled buses and autonomous on-demand shuttles will serve commuters in Punggol, Tengah and the Jurong Innovation District (JID) in Singapore from 2022.
MOT and LTA also launched a Request for Information (RFI) to seek inputs from the industry and research institutions on the key requirements and enablers needed for the successful pilot deployment of AVs.
Singapore's first autonomous vehicle (AV) test centre was opened at JID, Singapore’s largest living lab. The CETRAN AV Test Centre has been jointly developed by LTA, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and JTC Corporation. ST Kinetics and NTU ERI@N have plans to commence their autonomous bus trials at the CETRAN AV Test Centre next year.
