    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

    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.
