Better transit options ahead


URBAN public transport has been a priority of the National Transformation Programme (NTP) since we launched our first roadmap in 2010. Prior to this, the last major upgrade to our public transport infrastructure was more than 10 years ago following the introduction of the light rail transit (LRT) and monorail systems in the mid-1990s.

Over this period, passengers on our main rail lines suffered from overcrowding during peak hours, as did those commuting on buses plying popular routes in and around the city.
