When the Singapore Government announced it would migrate to a bus contracting model, it rightfully garnered our attention.
Already moving mass volumes of commuters in London, and with more experience than any other provider in Australia in seamlessly transitioning public transport contracts, we knew we could contribute to the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) as they moved to a franchise-based model.
In May 2015, Tower Transit Singapore was awarded the inaugural tender under the LTA’s bus contracting model. Held accountable to our industry peers, we were evaluated based on the quality of our operational experience, successfully winning the contract ahead of 10 other bidders, including the incumbent operators and a number of large multi-national public transport providers.
Tower Transit Singapore now employs 880 staff and since May 2016 operates 26 bus services. We are in a constant state of review and community consultation in the network, collaborating with Government and stakeholders to ensure a high level of service engagement, safety and reliability.
