NUS looking for solution to shuttle bus squeeze
NTU due to test driver-free buggies to ferry students around campus
Students travelling to and from lectures may no longer have to squeeze into packed buses under plans for a possible new transport network at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
The school wants developers to propose an "efficient, reliable, sustainable and environmentally friendly" system for the Kent Ridge campus and University Town (UTown).
This could involve anything from new, airport-style buses to an electric bicycle sharing system, experts told The Straits Times.
It would provide an alternative to the current shuttle bus service, which can get overcrowded during peak periods, when throngs of students finish lectures or arrive from Kent Ridge MRT station.
