MyTransport.SG Mobile is the first mobile application in the Asia-Pacific region to receive the Visionary Award at the 2012 Summit Emerging Media Award in the United States.

The award recognises winners for demonstrating unusually keen foresight in emerging media.

Developed by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the app was first launched in 2011 and provides information for all land transport users including motorist, public transport users and cyclists.

It is updated quarterly with new features incorporating feedback from the public. In the next update, users can look forward to obtaining real-time traffic speed information on expressways and arterial roads. There are also updates available in its "Snap-&Send" feature, where the public can snap photos of areas that need fixing, and in the "Cycling" feature, where users can look up new cycling paths.
