LTA regulates the use and ownership of private buses and ensures that they undergo regular inspections to maintain roadworthiness. Vocational Licences granted by the LTA ensure that drivers and bus attendants of Public Service Vehicles are qualified to serve the general public. All bus services that charge fares, and operate on pre-determined timetables and fixed routes with two or more stopping places within Singapore have to be licensed by the LTA.
All buses in Singapore are required to be registered before they can be driven on the road. Advertisement on buses must comply with LTA’s guidelines on advertising. Find out about the types of licensing requirements for different bus services and guidelines on advertisement on buses.
