 LTA to consult public for 2013 Land Transport Masterplan

SINGAPORE – The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be seeking views from commuters in its renewal of the Land Transport Masterplan.

The public will be consulted on their views of existing land transport policies, which were put in place by the 2008 Masterplan.

Public feedback will also be sought on new initiatives planned for the next 10-15 years.

The authority said that initiatives and amendments made in the 2013 Masterplan are meant to address emerging issues and changing needs of commuters.

Initiatives from the 2008 Masterplan include the expansion of the MRT network with the opening of the Circle Line, implementation of distance-based fares for buses and refinements in road tax and vehicle ownership policies.

Consultation will take place on an online portal as well as via email from now till September 30.

The public can take part in the consultation via a web portal at http://talk2lta.lta.gov.sg/ltmp or email their views to LTA-LTMP@lta.gov.sg.
