Factsheet: Stroller Restraint System to Be Tested on Service 69

News Releases
28 Jun 2017

    From 29 June 2017, a prototype stroller restraint system will be tested on SBS Transit Service 69, to secure open strollers on the bus. In addition to holding on to their strollers throughout the journey, parents and caregivers are encouraged to use the restraint system on the bus.

2.  As there is currently no standard restraint system for open strollers in the market, LTA worked with several Institutes of Higher Learning[1] in the study. The prototype was developed by the School of Design in the Temasek Polytechnic, and subsequently customised and fabricated by ST Kinetics for implementation.

3.  Service 69 has been chosen for the trial because it plies along housing estates and schools in the Bedok and Tampines areas, serving mainly families and residents going towards Tampines Bus Interchange and MRT station.

4.  As parents and caregivers are responsible for their children’s safety throughout the journey, they are reminded to also abide by LTA’s guidelines when travelling with open strollers on buses.

5.  LTA will consult the relevant stakeholders, including parents and caregivers with open strollers and bus captains, for their feedback on the system. Commuters are also welcome to provide their feedback at https://www.lta.gov.sg/feedback/. Feedback from users will allow LTA to further refine the system.
