General
Q1:Why is there a change in shuttle bus routes and some bus stops?
A:The changes are intended to improve commuters’ experience by reducing the shuttle bus waiting and travelling times. This will enable commuters to get to your campus destination faster.
Q2:Who initiated the improvements?
A:The University worked with NTUSU to look into improving the shuttle bus services in NTU. Following extensive focus group discussions and consultations with students by NTUSU, it was found that the main focus was to look at improving the frequencies of buses and to reduce waiting time.
After reviewing several ideas, the University decided to adopt the improvements outlined in Q3.
Q3:What are the changes to the shuttle bus service?
A:
  • A new Campus Loop – Red Line (CL-R) will replace Routes A & B. The new route will operate in the reverse direction from the present Route C, which has been renamed the Campus Loop – Blue Line (CL-B).
  • Bus-stops along the two new routes will be staggered optimally, so that buildings and facilities on campus are within short walking distance of within 10 minutes.
  • Because of this and to improve safety for pedestrians, some bus stops have been relocated.
  • Route D has been renamed the Campus Rider (CR) and its number of stops reduced, to shorten travel and waiting times.
  • A new bus depot will be constructed at the Chinese Heritage Centre to regulate bus frequency and prevent bunching of buses.
  • With CiTS as our technology partner, an improved GPS system will provide more accurate arrival times for commuters.
Q4:Is there a charge for using the shuttle bus service?
A:No, travel on the shuttle bus is free.
