Singapore success for Go-Ahead
Go-Ahead Group has had its contract to operate 450 buses in the Loyang region of Singapore extended by two years. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore granted the contract extension to Go-Ahead Singapore on the basis of strong operational performance.
The extension is to begin in September 2021 and run until September 2023. This follows the initial five-year contract which saw the Group’s entry into the Singapore bus market in September 2016.
Go-Ahead has drawn on its experience as the largest bus operator in London to export best practice to Singapore. Colleagues from Go-Ahead London who have spent time working with Go-Ahead Singapore have, similarly, brought back skills and knowledge that are now adding value to the Group’s UK operations.
Andrew Thompson, Go-Ahead Singapore Managing Director, said:”Today’s announcement is the result of much hard work by the 1,000 colleagues based at Loyang Depot. We are grateful to the Authority for the trust they have put in us and will continue to serve passengers with a safe and reliable bus network.”
