Given the uncertainty over how travel demand patterns will evolve amidst the COVID-19 situation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will extend the validity of the current Vehicle Growth Rate (VGR) by one year until 31 January 2022. The VGR for Certificate of Entitlement (COE) Categories A, B and D will therefore remain unchanged at 0% per annum, and the VGR for Category C will be maintained at 0.25% per annum.
2 The VGR ensures that our vehicle population growth is tempered and supports the development of a sustainable and liveable environment for Singaporeans.
3 In view of Singapore’s land constraints and our commitment to continually improve our public transport system, the current VGR has been set at 0% per annum for Categories A, B and D since February 2018. The VGR for Category C was maintained at 0.25% per annum, to provide businesses with time to improve the efficiency of their logistics operations and reduce the number of commercial vehicles that they require.
4 The extension of the current VGR will not have any impact on the supply of COEs, as the COE quota is determined largely by the number of vehicle deregistrations.
