The Public Transport Authority’s (PTA) vision is to be recognised as a leader in providing world-class public transport services and solutions.

Moving millions of people needs the skill and commitment of a talented workforce.

Ideally, such experience will relate to facility management, goods and inventory, technical/specialist services and projects/civil works.
