A record 6.1 million bus and rail journeys were made daily, based on the latest Household Interview Travel Survey conducted between 2016 and 2017 (“HITS 2016”). Private vehicle journeys declined for the first time since 1997, even as total travel demand increased by 5% from HITS 2012 to 15.4 million journeys. This points to a possible shift of Singapore residents switching from private vehicles to public transport for their daily commute. Public transport peak period mode share recorded an increase from 63% to 67%, putting Singapore firmly on track to achieving our Land Transport Master Plan (LTMP) 2013 target of having 75% of all journeys during peak hours made using public transport by 2030. For more details, please refer to the attached news release.
