Technologies such as heat sensors and cameras are being deployed at seven taxi stands here to better match taxi supply with demand, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

The taxi stands are located at HarbourFront Centre, Hitachi Towers, Keck Seng Tower, Lucky Plaza, Ngee Ann City, OG People's Park and VivoCity, said LTA in a statement yesterday.
