Commuters are now allow to bring their foldable bicycles and personal mobility devices (PMDs) on board public transport, Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced yesterday, May 28, 2017. Devices include e-scooters, unicycles and hoverboards.
This was the result of a successful six-month trial that began in December, which aimed to provide passengers with an alternative option for their first- and last-mile commute.
LTA stressed that the devices must be within specified dimensions (120cm x 70cm x 40cm). Users must also comply with a set of guidelines, which can be found in full on the LTA website.
These include keeping their devices folded as they push, pull or carry them; holding them securely so as not to block doors and pathways; and wrapping up wheels that are dirty or wet.
Commuters also need to note that these devices are prohibited on the upper decks of buses, as well as on staircase leading to the upper deck. Users who do not abide by the rules will have to face enforcement action; they can be fined up to S$500.
