Cycling Education Programme
In 2016, SYSTRA MVA developed a cycling safety programme for the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA), which includes a theory section as well as recommendations for practical circuit courses to test one’s ability on bicycle or Personal Mobility Device (PMD).
Through the course of developing the syllabus, several focus groups such as students, migrant workers and the general public were invited to test and improve prototypes. Eventually, the course duration was shortened from half-day to a 90-minute session with online public resources made available. While the theory session is covered in the beginning, the practical section puts participants in a training circuit that simulates scenarios often encountered on the roads or on shared paths.
On Sunday 26th February 2017, the Safe Riding Programme was revealed to the public and propagation of the safety awareness programme is slated to officially start in July 2017. For SYSTRA MVA, it is a new type of contract as it ventures into the Active Mobility scene, which is catching up fast with more emphasis on walking and cycling as an alternative mode of transport.
