Singapore and the issurance of a quota of licences to finance mobility
The scarcity of available public space drives Singapore’s mobility policy. The City-State occupies a territory restricted to the south by the ocean and to the north by the Johor Strait which marks the border with Malaysia. Public space is a fixed and extremely limited resource given Singapore’s urban development.

The latter measure aims to control and limit growth in the number of vehicles in circulation.Learn more / Download
