Q: Is there any difference between PMD vs PAB?

A: Yes. PMD stands for Personal Mobility Devicies. Vehicles such as unicycles, hoverboards and electric scooters belong to this classification. Currenly, only regulations have been proposed to LTA and are not in force yet.

On the other hand, PAB refers to Personal Assisted Bikes. This refers to electric bikes. Regulations applicable to PAB are currently in force. All PAB are required to be checked and approved by LTA.
Those that satisfy LTA regulations will be affixed with a blue seal. More details can be found here.

If a seller claims that a PAB is LTA approved, you can verify this by looking out for the blue seal affixed by LTA. Do note that for PMD, there is no seal yet as regulations applicable to PMD are not in force.  

Trial to allow all-day access for folding bikes, personal mobility devices (PMD) on trains & buses starting Dec.

 
 

SINGAPORE - From Dec 1st 2016, bus & MRT commuters will be able to bring foldable bicycles & personal mobility devices (PMD) such as kick & e-scooters onto buses & MRT trains all day as part of a six-month trial as announced earlier by Minister for Transport, Mr. Khaw Boon Wan in July this year.
"This is another step taken by LTA to encourage more people to use public transport, and to adopt active mobility for the first and last mile of their daily public transport commutes," said a spokesman for the authority.

Commuters will be allowed to bring foldable bicycles and PMDS which meet the following dimensions:
Length up to 120cm
Height of 70cm
Width of 40cm

Most bikes and PMDs currently available on the market meet these standards.
These devices must be folded at all times, and switched off when brought on board MRT trains and buses. They are also not allowed on the staircases or upper decks of double-decker buses.

"This initiative integrates active mobility with our public transport system, and brings us closer to our aspiration for walking, cycling and riding public transport to be the best way to get around in Singapore," said Mr Jeremy Yap, deputy chief executive for public transport, policy and planning at LTA.

"Commuters will able to cycle or ride to nearby transport nodes, bring their foldable bicycles and personal mobility devices on board public transport, and complete their journeys on their devices."
