Sometimes you need to make a connection between airports in New York City. On a recent trip, I was connecting through LaGuardia, but my flight was late and my rebooking required me to transfer to JFK. The easy solution in this case was to take a taxi, but I was in the mood to explore a bit and found a good alternative.
The NYC Airporter Express Bus provides a good alternative to a taxi if you are looking to save some cash during your airport transfer. The bus I took was clean, quick, and arrived at the airport to pick me up within 30 minutes as promised.
As of December 2013, here are their prices (one way/round trip):
- LaGuardia – Mannattan – $13/23
- JFK – Manhattan – $16/$29
- LaGuardia – JFK – $13
- JFK – LaGuardia – $13
- JFK/LaGuardia – Newark – $24
- Newark – JFK/LaGuardia – $24
I was able to book at a stand in the baggage claim area at LaGuardia, but they also take bookings on their website or over the phone. More info at http://www.nycairporter.com/
