By taxi: This is the most convenient way of getting to NTU from Changi Airport. Tell the taxi driver to go to NTU by ECP, then by PIE, and finally exit to Pioneer Rd. Prepare your photo camera--this way will show you a great "signature" view at Singapore central business district. The ride will cost you from S$25 to S$30 depending on time of traveling, and it will take 40 min (smooth traffic). Alternatively, at the Changi Airport taxi stand you can take a TIBS Limo, which will cost you S$30 flat to any part of Singapore. This cab has a bigger capacity and it is somewhat more comfortable then a regular cab. When you enter NTU campus, ask the driver to follow the CW2005 or NEC direction signs.
By Mass Rapid Transit Train and Bus:
Take the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train from Changi Airport and alight at the the Boon Lay station. This is the last stop along the East-West line. This trip will cost you S$1.90 and it will take 1 h 10 min. Then take bus no. 179 or 199 at the Boon Lay bus interchange that is just next to the MRT station. Thereafter, alight at B03 "Hall 2" (2729A) if you take bus 179 or B09 "Hall 8" (2720Z) if you take bus 199. The bus trip will take S$1.10 and it will take about 20 min. After alighting, follow the CW2005 direction signs. Refer to operation time of the buses. It may be a problem to get a taxi from Boon Lay station after 24:00 hrs.
