Service 199 is one of two SBS Transit routes serving within Nanyang Technological University (NTU), providing bus connections to and from Boon Lay Town Centre. The route also serves residents of Wenya and Jurong West Central 1.

The route experiences comparatively lower demand from students and staff of NTU since most of its route serves the University residential halls rather than faculty buildings. Demand is moderate throughout the day.
