Try your hands at planning an efficient and sustainable transport network, as well as experience the training of public transport workers through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) experiential activities.
Caring commuters, unite!
Big or small, every act of kindness and compassion helps to make journeys friendlier and more pleasant for everyone on our public transport.
Show us how commuters like yourself can help to show care by creating a caring commuting experience for others on our public transport and be a Caring Commuter Hero!
We invite aspiring young artists to express through art what we can do to create a pleasant journey for all onboard our public transport.
The top 3 winners will win an iPad! Selected art pieces will also be featured at various public transport nodes in Singapore!

Important: Ensure that you have read through the information in the Art Competition Kit before you submit your artwork at the Submission Portal!
Participants are encouraged to consider the needs of different commuters, including (but not limited to) people with disabilities, seniors, pregnant women, parents with young children, passengers with hidden disabilities, or even someone you see on your daily commutes, who just needs a hand or two for the day.
Consider these possible scenarios of commuters with needs around us:
- A commuter with an invisible medical condition: “I would appreciate a seat to rest on my journey home because of my invisible medical condition, as seen by the ‘May I Have A Seat Please’ lanyard I’m wearing.”
- A senior commuter: “I wish someone would flag down a bus on my behalf because I cannot see too well.”
- A commuter with a young child: “I would appreciate if someone could give up their space for me and my baby in his/her stroller when we use the elevator.”
- A commuter with mobility challenges: “I hope people would make space for me so that my wheelchair can turn the corner for me to get in and out of the bus/train.”
We can’t wait to see your creative art pieces, little Caring Commuter Heroes!

Be a Vigilant Commuter
Primary, Secondary Level
Under the Total Defence strategy, Civil Defence is the ability to spot signs of threats and respond effectively to crisis. All commuters have their part to play in keeping our public transport safe and we can do so by staying vigilant.
LTA conducts talks and workshops to educate students on how to spot and report security threats within the public transport network.
Duration: 30 mins or 60 mins
Safe Route to School
Designed to engage with schools, Safe Route to School (SRS) is a programme that aims to enhance road safety around the school environment. LTA collaborates with primary schools, stakeholder agencies and the community to identify and promote safer walking routes from the nearest transport node to school. Students will be involved in activities such as brainstorming of ideas or designing traffic information signs. These designs will eventually be used as actual road signs. This process helps students develop a better understanding of road safety and have ownership over their immediate physical environment.
Friendlier Roads, Happier Commutes
From bullock carts and rickshaws to modern vehicles transporting millions of people and goods across the island, Singapore’s roads have played an important role in shaping our urban living environment. As we strive towards a more sustainable Singapore, can we do more to transform our traditionally motorist-centric roads to meet the needs of other users and encourage greener commutes?
Step into the world of “Friendlier Roads, Happier Commutes” where our roads get reimagined as people-friendly spaces that promote safer, more pleasant, and sustainable commutes for all! Explore this interactive exhibition and discover how our roads can be transformed to meet our commuters’ evolving needs, making Walk Cycle Ride journeys accessible for everyone!
As you wander through our “design space”, be on the lookout to quash RogueBot, a cyber bug determined to disrupt our plans for friendlier roads. Are you ready?
