ERP rates will be reviewed again in May 2019.

In 2015, ERP revenue amounted to S$150 million.

Pre-ERP 2.0

In 2016, LTA tendered a S$556 million contract to a consortium comprising NCS and MHI Engine System Asia to develop ERP 2.0.

The new ERP system will use satellite technology and enables authorities to implement distance-based fees.

The new system will be progressively rolled out from 2020.

LTA said there will be a transition period lasting 18 months where both old and new ERP systems co-exist.

Save money on ERPs and car servicing

While lower ERPs are a near term plus for drivers, it is unknown if charges will rise after the new ERP system is in place.

In the interim, drivers can save money by servicing cars through Steer. Our 5% cashback allows customers to save money while our simple-to-use platform helps car owners find reliable car workshops.
