Service 199 is one of two public bus routes serving within Nanyang Technological University (NTU), providing bus connections to and from Boon Lay Town Centre.

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.
