Walter Theseira on Point-to-Point Passenger Transport Industry Bill

(Updated: )

NMP Walter Theseira hailed the Point-to-Point Passenger Transport Industry Bill as a “bold piece of legislation”. He believes it will be closely watched by cities worldwide struggling to regulate the growth of ride-hailing. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Aug 6), he said while the legislation is comprehensive, the real test lies in how the Land Transport Authority will use these powers to wisely regulate the industry. “This Bill gives regulators a broad set of tools. It is up to the Government to decide if the industry will be shaped by a hammer or by a chisel,” he said.
