The Public Transport Council is headed by the Chairman and Chief Executive, who are supported by six functional divisions.
Policy & Regulation
The Policy and Regulation Division supports the Council in carrying out public transport fare reviews, taking into consideration the prevailing framework and statutory mandate. It licenses public transport ticket payment service providers such as EZ-Link, NETS and Transit Link, and reviews proposals on how fares should be paid. The Division also administers the fare evasion enforcement regime to deter commuters from evading fares on bus, train and taxi services.
Insights & Advisory
The Insights & Advisory Division supports the Council in advising the Minister for Transport, through recommendations to improve the commuter experience on public transport.
The Division spearheads commuter engagement to derive insights and drives co-creation projects with industry stakeholders. The Division also oversees efforts to shape commuters’ behaviour, develop independent PT champions and a caring commuting culture.
To support our efforts to bring about affordable fares and a sustainable public transport system, the Corporate Communications Division draws up and carries out public communications plans to actively inform and engage internal and external stakeholders on policy matters and related issues. The Division also oversees corporate branding and public feedback management.
The Corporate Services Division oversees the formulation and execution of policies and plans for our administrative, finance, human resources, corporate governance, IT, procurement, legal and audit functions.
Transformation & Research Analytics
The Transformation & Research Analytics Division drives corporate transformation work plans and implementation. They also provide a centralised research and data analytics support to all other divisions in PTC. To gather more actionable insights to improve commuter experience, enhance communications and strengthen public engagement, the Division studies both local and international best practices and developments in public transport. They are responsible for surveys, research and benchmarking studies, engagement with academics, and oversee PTC’s involvement in UITP Asia-Pacific Organising Authorities Platform.
Strategic Communications & Engagement
The Strategic Communications & Engagement Division develops the communication strategies and public engagement plans for PTC, cultivates partnerships with public transport-related opinion leaders, and collaborates with other Divisions to build organisational competencies for deeper understanding of the ground sentiments.
