As articulated in the Land Transport Master Plan 2040, LTA encourages greater use of public transport. This vision of a car-lite nation aims to:
- Enable Singaporeans to enjoy 20 min towns and a 45 min city on public, active and shared modes of transport
- Provide transport for all
- Promote healthy lives and safer journeys
To seek innovative solutions to meet these objectives, LTA launches regular research and technology grant calls. The focus will be on use-inspired research proposals that have significant potential for scientific breakthrough or deployment. These investments in research and technology also create economic opportunities for firms to create solutions that can be commercialised in other cities worldwide.
