Getting There By Taxi: The most convenient way of getting to NTU from Changi Airport is by taxi. The taxi stand at Changi Airport is located just outside the Arrival hall on Level 1 in Terminal 1, and located at the end of the Arrival Hall on Level 1 in Terminal 2 (South Wing). Have the taxi driver take East Coast Parkway (ECP), then Pan Island Expressway (PIE) going towards Tuas, and exit the expressway at Exit 36 Jalan Bahar and keep right. Turn right to Jalan Bahar and soon you will see a white road sign leading to the university. Turn left into Nanyang Avenue, and after a long drive you will reach the main gate. Continue along Nanyang Avenue, and immediately after the bus-stop, turn left into Nanyang Crescent. Drive up along Nanyang Crescent, and turn in to the first road on your right and you will notice the prominent Centre. The ride will cost you from S$35 to S$40 depending on time of traveling, and it will take 30-40 minutes in smooth traffic. Alternatively, at the Changi Airport taxi stand you can take a limousine taxi, which will cost you S$45 flat (+$10 for midnight surcharge if time of arrival is after midnight) to any part of Singapore. This cab has a bigger capacity and it is somewhat more comfortable then a regular cab.
Taxis charge according to the meter. A surcharge of S$3.00 – S$5.00 is payable for all trips originating from Changi Airport. Details of other surcharges may be found at the taxi stand or posted on the door of the taxis. By Mass Rapid Transit, MRT (Subway)
Should you choose to take the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system, the Changi Airport MRT station is located outside the Arrival Hall in Terminal 2. Take the west-bound MRT from Changi Airport Station (CG2), transfer at Tanah Merah Station (EW4), and alight at Boon Lay Station (EW27) or Pioneer Station (EW28). This trip will cost you S$2.10 and it will take 1 h 10 min.
