Get an Immersive, Interactive Glimpse into the Future of Mobility
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially launched the new SG Mobility Gallery (“The Gallery”) on 19 September 2018. Spread over an area of 1,000 square metres, the Gallery features seven exhibition zones that showcase various facets of Singapore’s dynamic and comprehensive land transport system. The Gallery gives a behind-the-scenes look at how LTA plans, designs and builds our transport system while balancing efficiency, liveability and inclusivity as it leverages technology for smarter urban mobility.
2. The Gallery makes use of technology to create a rich and immersive learning experience for visitors. On arrival, visitors will be greeted by the Gallery’s virtual host Jamie, who will provide information on the Gallery, to enable easy navigation and exploration of the exhibits. Visitors can look forward to a host of interactive activities, such as taking on the role of a transport planner and trying their hands at planning an efficient and sustainable transport network through multi-sensory exhibits.
3. A 270-degree theatre provides a panoramic view into the work that goes on behind the scenes in running Singapore’s land transport system. Through augmented reality, visitors get a glimpse into how public transport workers such as rail engineers and bus technicians use technology in their work. Another highlight is a life-sized hands-free fare gate, currently being trialled at selected MRT stations, which enables commuters to enter and exit the train stations without the need to tap their fare cards.
4. Also taking centre stage is the Land Transport Hero Academy, where children can find out more about the unsung heroes of land transport and the critical roles they perform through interactive exhibits and games. Children will also be able to learn how everyone plays a part in contributing to a safe and pleasant journey.
5. Visitors hoping to take home a piece of the land transport system will be spoilt for choice at LTA’s flagship Knackstop store, where they can purchase merchandise from a carefully curated collection of creative and practical keepsakes inspired by our public transport system, including the ever-popular Our Thoughtful Characters. Net sales proceeds go to the LTA Cares Fund, a fund dedicated to the transport needs of the disadvantaged.
6. Located at LTA’s office at Hampshire Road, the Gallery is open on Mondays to Fridays, from 9.30am to 5pm, as well as on Saturday mornings for pre-arranged community visits. Admission is free. For more information on the Gallery, please visit www.lta.gov.sg/content/ltaweb/en/sgmobilitygallery
