The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) awarded the MyTransport.sg mobile application as one of six category winners in its Grow with Public Transport International Award. It announced this at the opening ceremony of the 60th UITP World Congress & Exhibition held in Geneva from May 26 to May 30.
The UITP awards recognise public transport stakeholders that have shown innovation in their efforts to boost the quality and quantity of public transport and thereby promoting its growth and usage.
The Land Transport Authority's MyTransport.sg application provides real-time updates to commuters, motorists and cyclists. It took the UITP award in the "Integrated Mobility" category. The awards attracted more than 240 applications from over 40 countries.
Said LTA chief executive Chew Hock Yong: "MyTransport.SG is the product of co-creation by the public and LTA, with LTA seeking ideas from public on what is useful to them and encouraging third- party developers to contribute innovative mobile applications by leveraging on the transport data that we share with them."
