AirTrain and subway | JFK – it's the cheapest way to travel from/to JFK. The AirTrain connects all airport terminals and also connects to subway lines A, E, J and Z. Follow the AirTrain signs and get off at Jamaica or Horward Beach - these stations are connected to subway lines. Remember you don't pay to use the AirTrain to go from one terminal to another– you'll only need to pay when you leave the station to go through the turnstile. The value is $5,50.

AirTrain and train | Newark - the AirTrain connects the three terminals and parking lots. Take the Airtrain to Newark Liberty International Airport Station, from where you can take the train to New York. At the airport itself, you can buy your train ticket to New York Penn Station. The price is US$13, with the fee to leave the AirTrain included. New York's Penn Station is located at 34th St and 8th Ave. To go the other way, you buy a ticket at Penn Station (NJ Transit) to Newark Liberty Airport – including access to the AirTrain.

Bus | Laguardia - follow signs for PUBLIC BUSES to the bus stop. You will take the M60 bus to the ASTORIA BLV subway station – the N and W lines have stops in Times Square.

GoAirlink Shuttle – is a transportation service from hotel to the airport and vice versa. Vans are available to and from the three New York area airports. You make a reservation online and inform your flight details. The system will suggest the times when the van can pick you up. It costs around $45. Attention: do not forget to check the limitations regarding luggage.

Ride sharing apps / Taxi – it will undoubtedly be the most comfortable and convenient service – but also the most expensive. As for the yellow taxis, the tip is to ask about the average fare beforehand, it is usually a fixed price. Don't forget that you still need to include the tip – 18% of the fare, on average.
