Bigger urban populations
Drive the future of mobility with disruptive technology and innovation. Improve land transport systems and decarbonisation efforts with disruptive technology such as autonomous vehicles, big data, artificial intelligence, and electrification, among many other possibilities.
Combine big data, real-time monitoring and mobile connectivity to improve the commuter experience in Singapore and beyond. Leverage them further to provide better trip planning, service matching and cashless payments. Big data can also supply dynamically routed, on-demand shuttles, and make rail and bus services more reliable.
Disruptive technology also changes the way we build and maintain land transport infrastructure. Real-time monitoring makes it possible to detect potential faults and carry out predictive maintenance by using smart sensors and data analytics. Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular as a more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional gas-powered cars. Advances in battery technology are making electric vehicles more practical and affordable, and governments around the world are incentivising their adoption.
Your company can develop smarter and safer ways to commute or work, using disruptive technology to improve your land transport business.
There has been an increased interest in solutions to cater to the growing demand for more inclusive, sustainable and affordable transportation options.The trend of car sharing has been rising in many parts of the world in recent years. In fact, the global car sharing market is expected to reach $16.5 billion by 2025. Car sharing is also considered a cheaper alternative to owning a car, while it helps to alleviate traffic congestion by reducing the number of vehicles on the road. With continued growth in the sharing economy and increasing efforts to reduce environmental pollution, car sharing may continue to be a rising trend.
Separately, Singapore's ageing population creates new demand and opportunities for land transport companies to meet the needs of our elderly. The number of Singaporeans aged 65 and above is expected to double from 500,000 in 2019 to 900,000 in 2030. Singapore land transport companies can come up with family-friendly solutions for families with young children, and more disabled-friendly options with assistive technology.
About half of the world's population lives in urban areas today and the number is set to increase. Companies can tap the growing global demand for solutions to manage public transportation systems and expand overseas.
The world’s population living in urban areas is set to increase to 68% by 2030, with the growth concentrated in China, India and Nigeria. Many cities need innovative solutions to manage their public transportation systems, build or upgrade rail networks and reduce road congestion.
