Singapore Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) efficient fleet management

Published June 11, 2021 in Case Studies

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) manages various transport developments in Singapore, and are responsible for planning, designing, building, and maintaining Singapore’s land transport infrastructure and systems. In 2016, LTA reorganised the way public bus service was funded and delivered throughout the country – otherwise known as the Bus Contracting Model (BCM).

This meant that bus operators were contracted to LTA to deliver services to a defined quality level, which included incentive-based Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). The aim was to enhance connectivity and improve bus service standards for Singapore’s 5.7 million residents, while enabling bus operators to respond to ridership and commuter needs more effectively.

Trapeze provides LTA’s technology to help manage bus services in Singapore. The Trapeze Intelligent Transport System (ITS), otherwise known as the Common Fleet Management System (CFMS), provides a common bus quality management and monitoring platform across all operators.

Buses are the most used form of public transport in Singapore, with over four million passengers taking the bus daily.
