This is the most convenient mode of transport to the University. From the airport, tell the taxi driver to head to NTU by use of the ECP, then by the PIE, and later to exit via Pioneer Road. 
The ride to the University should cost about S$35 to S$55 depending on the time of travel, and should take approximately 40 minutes. When you enter the campus, ask the driver to follow the CW2018 or NEC direction signs. The ride from the airport is a scenic spectacle, which will take you through Singapore’s central business district. So do have your cameras ready!
