Central Business District (CBD) taxi rule

With effect from 1 March 2008, the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) had implemented a compulsory CBD taxi rule. Taxi is required to pick up and drop off passengers only at the taxi stands, driveways of buildings or along side roads within the CBD where public buses do not ply. This rule takes effect between 7 am to 10 pm from Mondays to Saturdays, except public holidays.
From May 2008, the penalty of a $100 and 3 demerit points under the Vocational License Points System will be enforced on the taxi drivers. However, commuters are not penalise because taxi drivers are in a better position to avoid the offence.
