Making Walk Cycle Ride SG a reality goes beyond infrastructure. All of us need to look out for each other to get around safely. To that end, the Active Mobility Act (AMA), containing a set of rules and code of conduct for cyclists, and riders of personal mobility devices (PMDs) and power-assisted bicycles (PABs), was put in place. The AMA also provides LTA with legislative and enforcement powers to regulate the use of bicycles, PMDs and PABs on public paths, as well as the sale of these devices. Read on to learn more.
1PMDs refer to devices such as kick-scooters, electric scooters, hoverboards, unicycles etc. 2PMAs refer to devices such as wheelchairs, motorised wheelchairs or mobility scooters which are designed to carry an individual who is unable to walk or has walking difficulties.
All bicycles, PMDs and PABs have to meet the device criteria of maximum weight of 20kg, maximum width of 70cm and maximum capped speed of 25km/h to be used on public paths.
Devices such as bicycles, personal mobility devices (PMDs) and power-assisted bicycles (PABs) must adhere to the device criteria as below before they can be used on public paths.
Also, do note that all power-assisted bicycles (PABs) must be sealed with LTA approval seal, registered and fixed with a registration plate.
Please refer to the list of devices that do not meet the device criteria. The list is not exhaustive and should be used for reference only. Members of the public who are looking to buy PMDs should check that the specifications of the device they wish to purchase comply with the recommended device criteria.
