The LTA has announced that it will lift the two passenger limit for taxis and PHVs, in line with the new restrictions on permitted group sizes.

11 Jun 2021 | Local News : Singapore

The Land Transport Authority has announced that it will lift the two-passenger limit for taxis and private hire cars (PHCs) starting from 14 June 2021.

This is being done to bring said limits in line with Singapore's updated restrictions on permissible group sizes.

Wearing a mask continues to be mandatory at all times for passengers and drivers
Furthermore, paid car-pooling services that are matched through licensed ride-hail platforms, such as GrabHitch and RydePool, may resume from 14 June 2021.

However, paid car-pooling trips which are arranged through informal platforms such as Telegram groups remain illegal. Car-pooling trips which do not involve payment, such as those between families, friends or colleagues will be permitted, but will remain subject to the prevailing permissible group size of five people.

The authority also reminds all taxi and PHC drivers and passengers that wearing a mask continues to be mandatory at all times. Taxi and PHC drivers should decline to ferry passengers who do not wear masks.

Taxi drivers, PHC drivers and passengers are strongly encouraged to bring their TraceTogether token or keep their TraceTogether app on in their smartphone to facilitate contact tracing efforts.
