Travel Smart Grant for Developers

 

Dr Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Transport announced the enhancement of the Travel Smart Grant on 29 September 2017 Travel Smart Day.

 

With this enhancement, we are extending the Travel Smart Grant to all developers and owners of office buildings, who can use the grant to construct end-of-trip facilities such as showers, lockers and drying stations.

 

Developers and building owners can approach LTA for co-funding of such facilities during the building construction stage. With each successful application, LTA will fund 80% of the construction cost for end-of-trip facilities up to a maximum of $80,000 per development.

 

Any development that applies for Travel Smart Grant shall fulfill the criteria below:
