Public Transportation NYC Airports

JFK Subway

Public Transportation is always an alternative way of getting around NYC. The subway has a station right at the JFK Airport.

Public transportation is a favorite way of travel for most New Yorkers and NYC tourists.  When traveling to and from NY airports, AirTrain, subway, and bus are all systems that can transport you efficiently.  

  • JFK Airport transportation is easiest when using AirTrain JFK and NYC Subway.  You must locate the Howard Beach AirTrain Station by using subway train “A” then connect to AirTrain JFK.  Most subway lines connect to train “A” but be sure you take the “A” train marked “Far Rockaway” or “Rockaway Park” and not “Lefferts Boulevard.”  The train takes approximately twelve minutes to get to the JFK Airport from the Howard Beach station.  AirTrain fare is $5 in addition to subway fees.  You are welcome to pay your AirTrain fare with a pay-per-ride MetroCard.
  • LaGuardia Airport Transportation is different because there is no AirTrain or NY subway that connects directly, the most efficient way of public transportation is by bus.  From Manhattan or Astoria, take the M60 bus which runs between 106 Street and Broadway in Manhattan and the LaGuardia Airport from 5am to 1am, seven days a week.  The M60 can be reached by all North-South subway lines or by “N” and “Q” trains at the Astoria Blvd station.  Fares are paid by MetroCard.
  • Newark Airport Transportation is easy to use once you have located Newark Penn Station.  AirTrain EWR connects from Newark Penn station and takes you directly to the Newark Liberty airport, AirTrain EWR fare is $5.50.  To find a subway train that leads you to Penn station, check out the NYC Subway Map.
