Singapore looks to digital services to unblock traffic jams

One stop apps will help commuters jump out of cabs and onto scooters

A European startup that "believes owning a car doesn’t make much sense anymore" is bringing its Whim app to Singapore.

SINGAPORE -- Singapore is hoping to ease its congestion problems by encouraging foreign and local companies to help revolutionize the way consumers use its transport system.

Finnish mobility service provider Maas Global plans to enter the Singapore market early next year with an "all-in-one" app that consolidates all modes of transport services onto its platform. Singapore-born startup mobilityX is also expected to launch a similar app after last month announcing a new fundraising to expand in Singapore and the region.
