Singapore Vehicle Rental Association suggests lifting restricted hours on private car rental scheme
The Singapore Vehicle Rental Association says the government can consider lifting the restricted hours currently placed on the private car rental scheme.
This comes as the Land Transport Authority or LTA announced recently that it is studying the liberalisation of this scheme.
The Private Car Rental Scheme was introduced in 1996 to allow non-car owners to have access to private transport, on weekends and public holidays.
Currently chauffeur-driven rentals are not allowed.
The Association said the scheme could be expanded to include rental on week days as well.
And as private car owners do not have to register with the LTA when using the scheme, the Association also feels there must be some form of control.
Joseph Poh, Honorary Secretary of the Singapore Vehicle Rental Association, said that's because this could affect taxi operators and car rental companies.
