Besides an extensive public transport system, there are also options for commuters if they prefer to take a taxi or private hire cars. LTA’s priorities for both taxis and private hire providers are commuter safety, transparent pricing and meeting transport demand.
The regulatory review of the Point-to-Point (P2P) sector is on-going to ensure that commuters can continue to benefit from a robust and safe P2P space. More details will be provided in the coming months. Click here for more information on the P2P Bill.

Taxi operators must follow Quality of Service standards, which includes minimum Taxi Availability Standards, such as ensuring that at least 80% of their fleet is on the road during the peak morning and evening hours.
Private Hire Cars
LTA requires drivers of Private Hire Cars (PHCs) to meet regulatory requirements and hold a PHC Driver’s Vocational Licence. Under this licence, drivers must abide by a framework of rules and regulations set out in the Vocational Licence Demerit Points System.
