With a country of 720 square kilometres, 12% of which is already taken by roads and over 1 million vehicles, Singapore understands the importance of ITS.

Andrew Chow, President of ITS Singapore, is hosting the ITS Singapore stand at the ITS World Congress.

“ITS is very high on the agenda for the government of Singapore and it takes a very pragmatic approach to transport requirements,” said Chow. “We cannot afford an increase in the growth of the car population which is currently at about 0.25%. We cannot build more roads, so the aim is to encourage people to move away from car ownership and into car sharing or public transport,” he said.

‘But for people to move to public transport, they have to be confident that the solutions work, that there is connectivity between networks and that transport is there when you expect it to be. That’s why the government is constantly examining and investing in the latest transport designs, solutions and technologies to ensure Singapore remains congestion free.”

Andrew Chow was also delighted that Singapore will play host when the ITS World Congress returns to Asia in 2019.
