The Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore plans a slew of technology initiatives to harness technology for convenient travel. Innovation being the key.


The Government aims to shift 75 per cent of all peak hour trips to public transport by 2030, up from about 63 per cent now.


The authorities are also working on a use-first-pay-later system for public transport. The vision for fare payment, though, is what is termed the Be-In-Be-Out system. Instead of making commuters tap in and out to register a trip, the technology can detect and automatically register commuters in a bus or train so long as they have the fare cards on them. Such hands-free systems will offer commuters the "ultimate convenience"

There are plans to test truck platooning, or what is also known as "follow-me" technology. This comprises a lead truck steered by a driver, followed by a convoy of about three to four driverless trucks, which reduces manpower reliance and increases productivity.
