The behavior of phase coherence is studied in two-dimensional hole gas through the integer quantum Hall plateau-to-plateau transition. From the plateau transition as a function of temperature, scaling properties of multiple transitions are analyzed. Our results are in good agreement with the assumption of the zero-point fluctuations of the coherent holes, and support the intrinsic saturation of the coherence time at low temperature limit. The critical exponent p can also be determined under the scheme of the zero-point fluctuations. The similarity and difference in experimental observations between quantum Griffiths singularity and plateau transition is discussed. The spin-orbit coupling effect's influence on the plateau transition is explored by comparing the results from different transitions.
