what's the easiest way to get from JFK Terminal 1 to Penn Station.

JFK_Employee

Take Airtrain on track 1 to Jamaica Station( be careful - on that track there are two alternating trains going two different routes; check the sign above the doors as the train arrives; the red colored sign is Jamaica one). Then take LIRR train to Penn Station(total fare ~ $12, less on the weekends; 35-45 min.)

Hi I arrive Friday 21st at 20.30 hours from the UK. I'm staying at a hotel that is apparently very close to Times Square (West 43rd St.)What is the quickest way to get from the Airport to Times Square?

Many Thanks

Taxi(the fastest way):
Yellow cab (from JFK to any point to Manhattan) costs flat rate of $45 + bridge toll($5.50). The price is for the whole taxi, not per passenger.It takes ~40 min.

Could you please help me to find an affordable way to go to Scarsdale, NY 10583 from JFK airport tomorrow evening.

Thank you for your help

Look for Ground Transportation (Welcome Center) counter. There are two services there - Westchester Express and All County; both of them have a door-to-door service to Scarsdale,NY for about $50/passenger.

I arrive on at 2:30pm with a layover of 8 hours. Is this enough to see any sites in NYC and still allow enough time to get back to JFK for my international flight to Europe?

JFK_Employee

You will have time. Bear in mind that you will need 1-1.5 hours to go to the city and the same to go back. And you have to be at JFK 2-3 hours prior to departure.

My aupair is traveling from Summit NJ to JFK, how and what is the easiest way for her to get there.. She has bags so trains may not let her board.

Need help. Thanks

BG (not verified)

Tough to take public transportation with lots of bags however both NJ Transit and LIRR have luggage racks on their trains so she could certainly take NJT to Penn Station, transfer to LIRR to Jamaica and then Airtrain to terminals or take the NYAS bus from Penn Station to JFK. Taxi or shuttle service would probably be best.

Hello,

I am arriving JFK airport on May 24. Please advice me on the way to get to Providence,RI. What bus line should I take? Is there any direct option from JFK to Providence, RI?

Many thanks in advance.

BG (not verified)

Check to see if there are any direct flights from JFK to Providence (PVD) on American Eagle or Delta Connection. Bus from Port Authority Bus Terminal or train from Penn Station will get you to Providence. You can take the NYAS bus that departs from each terminal and stops at both locations for $15 or take the Airtrain to Jamaica Station and transfer to the E subway which stops at both (cost $7.25). The LIRR is also at Jamaica which will take you to Penn Station. Taxi will cost $50+.

I arrive JFK this sunday 23rd at 22h45pm, need to move to Newark airport. What options do I have?

BG (not verified)

At that time of night I'd take a cab. You'll be on the meter plus tolls but traffic shouldn't be too bad and it's much safer than public transportation so late at night. The subways run 24/7 but bus/train options are quite limited.

Tatiana Roldugina

Hello, could you please advise me on getting from JFK airport to Providence,RI on May 24?
Many thanks in advance!

BG (not verified)

Bus or Amtrak are your best and cheapest options to Providence. Bus will leave from Port Authority Bus Terminal and Amtrak from Penn Station, both accessible on the E subway from Jamaica Station via Airtrain ($7.25 subway/Airtrain)) from your terminal. You can also take LIRR from Jamaica to Penn Station; a bit faster and more expensive but the LIRR trains have overhead luggage racks.

Philadelphia (not verified)

I am traveling from JFK on Wednesday May 19th at 11:15 pm. I need to get to JFK from Philadelphia. Is there any shuttle I can take directly from Philadelphia to JFK early on Wednesday morning? or any other way you would recommend to get there?

Thanks for your help and hope to have a response.

Hi JFK -

I see couple of buses going to Boston in this page like Fung Wah. Please let me know do they do a pickup (either via shuttle or straight) from JFK to Boston?

How frequent they do?

Thanks

Fung Wah bus does not pick up at JFK. You have to go to Manhattan(Chinatown, Canal street) to get the bus.
It leaves NY every hour in off peak times and every 30 min in peak times. See http://www.fungwahbus.com

Whats the cheapest/easiest way to get from JFK airport to Baltimore without flying? Am considering bus, but i wonder about the time it would take to get to the bus stations in question, or if there's any corresponding transport to where buses to Baltimore depart from.

JFK_Employee

You can either take bus(as cheap as $18) or train($95) to Baltimore. For either transportation you have to go to PA Bus terminal(for bus) or Penn Station(for train) in Manhattan.
Check out those websites for details:

How can i go to Virginia by bus and how much does it cost to go there and is a yellow cab cheaper pls help and we have luggage

JFK_Employee

Definitely the bus is cheaper than a taxi.
For you to take a bus you have to go to Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan and take Greyhound bus to Virginia(or check out the alternative buses in the beginning of this web page).
Here is how to get to PA bus terminal:
1. Taxi(~40minutes)
Yellow cab (from JFK to any point to Manhattan) costs flat rate of $45 + bridge toll($5.50). The price is for the whole taxi, not per passenger.
2. Public(~1hr-1:15hrs)
Take Airtrain from any terminal on track 1 to Jamaica Station( be careful - on that track there are two alternating trains going to different routes; check the sign above the doors as the train arrives; the red colored sign is Jamaica one). Then take subway line E to 42nd street stop. Cost-$7.25/passenger.

3. Express Bus(50min-1hr.)
NYAS(New York Airport Service) bus will take you express to Times Square for $15/passenger. The bus leaves every 20 min in front of each JFK terminal. You can buy tickets on the bus or from their representative in front of the terminal.
