What is the Land Transport Innovation Portal?

This is an image of a laptop with graphs and charts on screen

The Land Transport Innovation Portal (LTIP) is a one-stop platform for our ecosystem partners.

LTIP encourages and facilitates interested innovators to develop innovative solutions to support our needs encapsulated under the Land Transport Master Plan 2040 (LTMP 2040) goals.

Through this portal, interested partners will be able to:

Calling for Land Transport Innovation Ideas

This is an image of a person submitting their idea

The operating environment in the land transport sector will continue to evolve rapidly in the coming decade, driven by a tight labour market, the recovery of global supply chains, and increased urgency for net-zero carbon emissions.

We aim to partner industry innovators to solve land transport sector challenges and achieve the following key outcomes. Your application should meet at least two (2) of the outcomes:

Submit your Ideas

If you have new approaches, ideas or new technologies that could help us achieve our strategic goals, you may submit an abstract of your proposed solution through our Submission Form.

And if your proposed idea matches what we are looking for, we will get in touch with you to find out more!

Who can apply?

Local and global organisations (e.g. companies, research institutes or institutes of higher learning) who will set up a base in Singapore to conduct the project, own, manage and exploit rights of all intellectual property that is developed.

Proposed solutions will be evaluated broadly based on, but not limited to the following criteria:

Criteria Description
  • The solution should be aligned with the key goals of LTMP 2040 with a clear value proposition and should demonstrate the steps to achieve them.
  • The solution should be innovative and not already available or commercialised in the market.
  • The solution should not already be funded by other LTA initiatives or another agency.
Scalability & Implementation
  • The solution should be supported by realistic deliverables and outcomes to support the implementation plans.

Shortlisted solutions will be funded based on the duration, level of scalability and technology readiness. Funding requirements and details will be determined based on the nature of project.

This is an image of the various potholes on roads

LTA monitors and maintains over 9,000 lane-kilometres of roads and checks for road defects, including potholes. During periods of prolonged heavy rainfall, more resources are dedicated to conduct additional inspections and expedite pothole repairs.

This call aims to enhance our current pothole repair procedures under various weather conditions. The improvements should allow for effective and productive repair work on roads, that ensure roads are safe for all users.

Road pavement defects such as potholes can pose safety risks to road users, especially for motorcyclists and cyclists, and must be attended to as quickly as possible. Currently, such pavement defects are all attended to by removing the defective pavement which are then patched back with fresh asphalt hot-mix.

However, this current process is a time-consuming and manpower intensive operation, where effective patching can only be done when the road pavement surface is dry. This poses a challenge to manage the surge in pothole occurrences during a prolonged wet season.

The call for solutions seeks the objective for repair works to be conducted efficiently in both dry and wet conditions, with reduced resources and time. The solution should also be easily adopted with minimum training and be able to be scaled up within a reasonable short duration.

Please refer to the Problem Statement Brief for the Call for Solutions (PDF, 293 kB) and register your interest to attend a technical briefing between 11 and 18 October 2023 (both dates inclusive) via this submission form.

  • The briefing will take place only if sufficient interest is received by 9 October 2023.
  • All registered attendees will receive a confirmation by 10 October 2023.

All proposals must be submitted by 15 November 2023, 4pm (SGT/GMT+8) via this submission form. LTA will engage shortlisted solution providers separately after the call for solutions closes.

To promote collaboration and co-creation of innovation solutions, enterprises, third-party developers, researchers, and the general public can leverage on the data on Land Transport DataMall.


Open Datasets
  • Static Datasets comprise mostly the Geographical Information System (GIS) information available in the ESRI shape file format, and LTA’s statistical monthly/annual reports in PDF and XLS formats.
  • Dynamic Datasets are updated live, and served out via APIs which are accessible with an Account Key issued only to registered DataMall subscribers.


On-Request Datasets

Beyond the Open Datasets, LTA also shares other datasets on a case-by case basis to provide higher levels of granularity for more data-driven solutioning. This is to adequately address requesters’ needs, while meeting LTA’s commitment to data confidentiality and privacy.

The datasets available for on-request sharing are listed in DataMall’s “On-Request Datasets” tab, with more specific information on the metadata in each dataset. To request data, requestors should download and complete the Data Sharing Form and submit it via the Contact Us page on DataMall.

This is an image of the JLD challenge call update

Jurong Lake District (JLD) is a new growth area in western Singapore that serves as the largest mixed-use business district outside of our city centre.

Going car-lite is one of the key ambitions of the JLD in progressing towards net zero emissions by 2045.

To encourage drivers to adopt Walk Cycle Ride (WCR) modes of transport for trips within JLD, URA and SNGDO, with LTA’s support, are organising the Jurong Lake District Innovation Challenge. Under this challenge, SMRT has developed a problem statement to look for a solution that aggregates information across the various public transport services and active mobility options in JLD. The solution targets to change car owners and frequent drivers’ perception of public transport and offer commuters better interaction with SMRT’s offerings.

The selected winning team Mapxus proposed a new solution to encourage active mobility and the use of public transportation through a navigation application that connects both indoor and outdoor spaces.

The application also offers barrier-free routes that avoid escalators and stairs, with the potential to integrate with retail solutions such as online queue or food ordering systems. This solution will enable JLD to be a more inclusive and vibrant district and aligns with LTA’s goals to make WCR transport modes the preferred way of travel.

The second winning solution by Nippon Koei, is a personalised journey planner application with features such as cost comparison for transport options, carbon footprint tracker and a rewards system to promote the use of public transport and active mobility.

The winning solutions will each receive a cash prize of $50,000 to support the production of prototypes to be piloted at various locations provided by JLD’s stakeholders by July 2024.

The Land Transport Innovation Challenge was launched on 2 September 2022, in collaboration with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

Through this innovation challenge, we sought to address problem statements faced in the land transport sector. Two companies were selected from more than 56 submissions from start-ups, research institutes, institutes of higher learning, small and medium enterprises. The winning companies showcased promising potential to address the problem statements effectively. Both companies will be awarded $50,000 each and will continue to work closely with LTA to develop their innovative solutions in the following months.

  • Mind PointEye for their proposal to address the Challenge Statement – “Enhancing Inspection Process for Better Road Tunnel Maintenance”. The solution introduces the use of robotic automation and artificial intelligence technology for the inspection of tunnel ventilation fan silencers, thereby increasing efficiency and safety of the the inspection process, as well as reducing the man-hours required.
  • Quantum Inventions for their proposal to address the Challenge Statement – “Optimised Route Planner for Oversized Vehicles to Ensure Road Safety”. The solution introduces a new Routing Engine, that integrates with LTA’s back and front-end systems, for a more efficient and accurate route planning process within the application procedure of oversized vehicle permits. The enhanced route planning process within the solution helps to enhance road safety.
