Land Transport Innovation Portal
What is the Land Transport Innovation Portal?
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
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:
|Scalability & Implementation||
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.

Call for Solutions - Optimising Electrical Capacity at Carparks to Support EV Chargers (Closes 13 March 2023)
LTA’s National Electric Vehicle Centre (NEVC) has recently awarded a tender for the deployment of at least 12,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points in nearly 2,000 HDB carparks across Singapore by the end of 2025. When completed, every HDB town will be EV-ready.
To support this deployment, extensive and costly electrical grid infrastructure upgrades at downstream substations (SS) and consumer switchrooms (CSRs) at HDB carparks are required. Hence, there is an imperative to explore alternative and innovative ways to deploy some EV chargers ahead of the infrastructure upgrades, particularly at local CSRs with no spare capacity.
LTA is seeking modular, quick-to-install smart charging innovative technology solutions that could optimise existing electrical demand during low-power usage periods in the carparks.
For more details on the problem statement and submission guidelines, download the Problem Statement – Optimising Electrical Capacity at Carparks to Support EV Chargers (PDF, 229KB) for the full brief.
Submit your proposal via this submission form.
Submission of applications will close on 13 March 2023, 4pm.
Data to Support Innovation Work
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.
- 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.
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.
The Land Transport Innovation Challenge is a collaboration between LTA and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). This challenge consists of four problem statements, with a prize money of $50,000 each.
Problem solvers will also get support from IMDA’s Open Innovation Platform (OIP) during and after the proof-of-concept / prototype stages to develop their solutions further.
Submission of applications for the challenge is closed. We would like to thank the companies, research institutions and individuals for your participation. Selected proposals will be announced in 1Q 2023.
The “Accelerating Co-innovation for Transformation & Export (Xcite)" is a joint innovation call by LTA and Enterprise Singapore (EnterpriseSG) in collaboration with IPI Singapore to co-create innovative solutions with industry partners to enhance the capabilities, efficiency, and responsiveness of Singapore’s land transport industry.
This is the third Xcite joint innovation call and this year’s problem statement focuses on “Fire Safety in Electric Vehicles”. LTA and EnterpriseSG, in partnership with Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), hope to work with start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) and Research Institutes (RIs) to develop innovative solutions for fire safety systems that can improve or supplement the current fire protection systems in existing carparks.
Submission of applications for the challenge is closed. Please refer to the Xcite website for the latest announcements and timeline for the challenge.
The Singapore Mobility Challenge (SMC) is an open innovation invitation targeted at start-ups to enhance the public transport system and improve the lives of commuters. The latest challenge is organised by LTA, SBST, SMRT, and co-organised by EnterpriseSG and ITS Singapore.
Submission of applications for the challenge is closed.
Demo Day was held on 18 January 2023 at the Lifelong Learning Institute, where the shortlisted finalists presented their ideas.
The following top three teams (of which two are Singapore-based start-ups) edged out the rest, winning from a cash prize pool of S$30,000 and a matching Startup SG grant.
