A&S Transit’s Key To Longevity And Success In Singapore’s Transportation Industry
“I think we can attribute our longevity in the market to our belief in innovation. We are constantly on the lookout to provide innovative offerings to passengers. This has led us to offer many firsts in the industry and allowed us to stay at the forefront of the industry.
The biggest and most immediate challenge in Singapore’s transportation landscape is the lack of manpower. Drivers are scarce in an advanced country. Our philosophy in overcoming this challenge is to change the perception of bus driving among the youth.
Our company has been supporting the young bus enthusiast community with various platforms and has also formed the first team of youth bus drivers within our company, providing them with opportunities to explore and manage transportation projects. We have seen good results from these initiatives and have observed a shift in public perception towards the career of bus driving.”
