Use taxi please for 50 dollars.

Taxi does not cost $50 from JFK to Newark!! Try closer to $80 plus tolls and tip, plus the trip is on the meter!! Where do you come up with your information? Your mis-information is providing a disservice to these nice people!!

State Shuttle offers airport-to-airport service, inquire at the Ground Transportation counter. Taxi is a more expensive option. You can also take public transportation; JFK AirTrain from terminal to Jamaica Station>LIRR to Penn Station>NJ Transit train to Newark Airport station>Newark Airport Airtrain to terminals.

Hello,

I can't get a workable flight to and from JFK for my trip to and from China. So is it better to fly into/out of and then cab it to/from LaGuardia or Newark? Thank you!

Yes that might be your other option.

Where to park the car in JFK, terminal not known for Qatar Airways. Have to park the car and receive the friend in the arrival point.

Use terminal 4 parking lot.

Hi,
Whats the best way to get 3adults and 1 kid with 7bags from jfk to Marriot downtown. Thanks in advance.

Taxi might take at least 5 people or you could use a train.

The yellow cab takes only 4 people, JFK_Specialist! Stop littering the board with misinformation!!!

Taxi will take a maximum of 4 persons however if your bags won't all fit you may need a larger vehicle which can be arranged at ground transportation.

I am arriving at Port Authority after 12:45am on 12/8. How do I get to the Airtrain to arrive no later than 3am to JFK? Is there a subway train to Jamaica in the same building that I won't have to walk outside, and if so, will it be operational at that hour in the morning? Would I have to carry my suitcases up/down stairs to get to the E train? If all else fails, are any shuttles like Super Shuttle working at that hour in the morning? Help!

Have to pick up my daughter at terminal 7, am driving from Albany,NY, how long will it take, will be using the I-95.

Not sure exactly how long - depending on where you actually leave from, but your looking at a good 4-5 hour drive at least !

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Royal Air Maroc? They never pick up their phone. I booked a flight with them on line but wasn't offered the opportunity to get a seat assignment. I'm trying to touch base with them but they are impossible to reach. Any suggestions?
