Two of LTA's IT projects win awards

Two of the Land Transport Authority's IT projects - MyTransport.SG Mobile App emerged as the Distinguished Winner in the m-Services category, and its data sharing initiative DataMall@MyTransport.SG took home a Distinguished Winner award in the Data Sharing category for its contributions to the developer community at the inaugural e-Government Excellence Awards . 

The awards aim to recognise exceptional government initiatives that use information technology in an innovative way to enhance government operations, provide a more open and transparent government, and deliver impactful citizen services. 

The competition saw more than 45 government agencies sending in over 90 submissions to vie for six distinguished winner awards and 12 merit awards in six categories. 

LTA says DataMall@MyTransport.SG was conceived through a cloud computing programme in November 2011 with the aim of sharing LTA's rich repository of land transport data such as public transport, traffic and geospatial data. 

While MyTransport.SG offers a wide range of information for all modes of land transportation - empowering commuters, motorists and cyclists in Singapore to make informed decisions and better plan their journey with information on the nearest bus-stops and taxi stands, nearest cycling paths, parking lot location and availability, traffic cameras, and real-time road conditions.
