Abstract: Singapore aims to achieve a “car-lite” society with a sustainable travel system. Active mobility, consisting of walking, cycling and the use of Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), plays as an essential element for seamless public transport travelling experience because active mobility is used by a large of number of travellers for short distance first/last-mile travel. Pedestrians, cyclists and PMD users share various paths. Recently, the Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP) carried out a nation-wide consultation to obtain the perspectives from the public and thereby recommended a set of regulations and code of conduct for cyclists and PMD users to follow. Besides, efforts have been put into public education, enforcement and infrastructure development. This research project focuses on the interactive behaviours of pedestrians and PMD users around the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations in the neighbourhood area. Field works, including site audits and video observations, were carried out to study the paths around MRT station, including pedestrians’ and PMD users’ interactive behaviours pertaining to lateral width and relative velocity. The results of analysis suggested that the current landscape of active mobility can be improved with public education for both pedestrians and PMD users and infrastructure maintenance and upgrading like remarking signs on paths. With efforts from the Government and public, Singapore is on track to achieve a car-lite environment.
