    Any time I find myself here, I'm rather proud because I just saved cab fare and I'm not running scary late.

    The train goes to Terminal 1 first; if you're going to Terminal 8 or 7, hop off at T1 and cross to the other line in the other direction.

    The BEST way to get to JFK. Take the LIRR from Penn to Jamaica and take the AirTran right to your terminal for $13.25 in about an hour. Free between terminals.

    The train goes to terminal 1 and then 2. Terminal 8 will be the last stop. Switch to the other track at terminal 1 for faster access to terminal 8. Time is money :D

    AirTrain is supposed to run every 7 minutes. But it actually runs every 15 minutes... Budget extra time!

    LIRR from Brooklyn to JFK is 22 minutes and $4 (weekend City ticket). Fastest, cheapest option. (Subway is 60 min + and cab is $50+)

    Plan at least 23 minutes under the new, painfully less frequent schedule to get from Jamaica to Terminal 1.

    Be careful of all the homless people that hang around there who scream and curse you out that security seems to refuse to get rid of.

    DO NOT give your unlimited/weekly passes away to the people who ask for them. They turn & sell them to make quick booze/drug bucks. It's a real problem in the elevators & now, even on subway level.

    Frequent fliers, get the 10-trip Airtrain Metrocard for $25 and save 50%! Just use within one year. Fastest way to JFK? LIRR from Penn Station to Jamaica.
