Transport and automotive services are exempted from the Singapore Government-issued suspension. Here is the list of services that will continue with their business.

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, the Singapore Government announced that most workplaces will be closed from 7 April to 4 May 2020.

However, essential services, such as health and social, food, manufacturing, and banking will continue to operate.

Thankfully, transport and automotive services will continue, with a few exceptions.

Here is the list of transport & automotive services that are exempted from the suspension:


- Food delivery services


- Petrol stations

Transport and Storage Services

- Provision of public transport services, including key supporting services and suppliers

- Monitoring and management of traffic and road operations

- Provision of point-to-point transport services (including Taxis, Private Buses, Private Hire Cars), and key supporting services and suppliers

- 3rd party logistics providers, freight forwarders, trucking, air express integrators

- Transportation that is necessary to support other Essential Services

Banking and Finance (For motor insurance)

- Insurance services (e.g. claims servicing, policy renewal and servicing, policy inception, insurance broking, financial advisory)


- Vehicle recovery and repair services (For emergency vehicle services only, no vehicle grooming)

Earlier this week, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced that Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) will be suspended at most locations from 6 April 2020 onwards.

We are still in the midst of confirming if other motoring-related services, such as used car dealers, workshops, scrap yards, and vehicle inspection centres, will continue. Please stay tuned for updates.

Until then, please maintain a safe social distance from others, wash your hands regularly, and most importantly, defer all non-essential travel and outings.

From all of us at Motorist, take care and please stay safe!
