Featured on Smartcom for Push-To-Talk Solutions

Under this solution, Yeap Transport will be using Smartcom’s TASSTA Certified Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) island-wide solution along with Samsung’s PTT devices while being further secured by Samsung’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, Samsung Knox.


Yeap Transport will use the Samsung smart devices with in-built PTT for its bus crew and operations staff in its five decentralised command centres. Its purpose is to facilitate real-time coordination between bus drivers, bus monitors, and operators to ensure the timeliness and prevention of buses from arriving or departing simultaneously. School buses can then enter and leave the bus bays without facing congestion. In addition, the solution enables the bus monitors to report any incidents on the bus along its journey, allowing the operations staff to respond promptly.

Maintaining business continuity in this new normal where Covid-19 is endemic means that we must drive towards innovation and learn to be agile. Whilst we strive to upgrade our fleet management system and hardware and push for sustainable transportation, one thing remains constant. And that is our commitment to safety. We have to ensure that safety remains of paramount importance to everyone, from the management to the transport managers to the crew.


A big thank you to Volvo Singapore for validating our efforts in maintaining safety standards. As a manufacturer of premium buses, Volvo’s additional safety features coupled with its advanced telematics and geo-fencing technology, make it a partner of choice when it comes to school bus services.

Featured on Lianhe Zaobao: Automobile Association of Singapore "Safe Speed, Save Lives" Campaign


The Annual Traffic Statistics 2021 by the Traffic Police have shown that speeding-related accidents and fatalities in Singapore have increased by 28% in 2021. In 2020, there were 279 buses involved in fatal and injury road accidents.


At Yeap Transport Pte Ltd we are always mindful of the responsibility we hold as we carry the future in our school buses. As such, we are honoured to be a partner of the Automobile Association of Singapore (AAS) in launching the “Safe Speed, Save Lives” campaign hosted at UWC South East Asia Dover Campus.


Together with AAS, we hope to instil and inculcate a sense of ownership in our bus drivers to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities through advocating safe driving behaviours among this group. The decals on our buses serve to remind our drivers to keep to a safe speed limit of 30 km/h in key zones. This will ensure the safety and well-being of our young passengers and reduce speed-related accidents to save more lives.
