Singapore is well-connected through a system of public trains (MRT) and buses, while the NUS campus itself is serviced by a network of free shuttle buses. You can access both MRT and bus services using an EZ-link card that is available at all Passenger Service Stations at most MRT stations and 7-Eleven stores.
