New LTA app shows taxi locations
The new taxi information system is not the only tech item the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is rolling out. Next month, it will launch a new crowd-sourcing taxi application called Taxi-Taxi@SG, which will show the availability and location of taxis across the island and better match these taxis to commuters. Through an integrated platform map, commuters can locate the number of available taxis near them and broadcast their own positions, so drivers can identify the exact locations of potential customers. Taxi drivers can use this app to reduce time spent on the roads looking for customers.
