The Ministry of Transport (Abbreviation: MOT; Chinese: 交通部, Pinyin: Jiāotōngbù, Template:Lang-ms; Template:Lang-ta) is a ministry in the Government of Singapore that administers and regulates land, sea and air transportation within the republic’s jurisdiction. Its head office is in the PSA Building.[1]

Organisation structureEdit

Currently, the ministry regulates and commissions four individual government statutory boards: the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Transport for Singapore (TfS), which implement the ministry’s policies and tactical directions.

The Ministry has seven divisions with staff strength of slightly more than 100 staff. These are Air Transport Division, Land Transport Division, Sea Transport Division, International Relations and Security Division, Corporate Communications Division, Corporate Development Division and the Air Accident Investigation Bureau of Singapore (AAIB).[2]

Following a series of strikes, poor performance, removal of access for the disabled and commuter protests relating to Govia Thameslink Railway a group of commuters crowdfunded £26,000 to initiate a Judicial Review into the Department for Transport's management and failure to penalise Govia or remove the management contract. The oral hearing to determine if commuters have standing to bring a Judicial Review is listed for 29 June 2017 at the Royal Court of Justice.

AwardsEdit

MOT was awarded the ISO 9002 certification on 19 June 2000 for organisational excellence; it was also the recipient of the People Developer Award in October 2001 and it achieved Singapore Quality Class status in October 2003.
