*The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has commenced a review of the Point-to-Point (P2P) industry structure and regulatory framework, to ensure their continued relevance as commuter needs and the industry structure evolve.

LTA expects to complete the review by the second half of 2024. More details will be made available after the review is completed.
