a kinnda crowded spot
Most economical way to get to jfk in nyc
Add money to your MTA card and use it. It works fine.
Any time I find myself here, I'm rather proud because I just saved cab fare and I'm not running scary late.
Huge AirPort but everything is easy to find your way!
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.
Surprisingly easy to use and super cheap.
Better and safer than a cab.
Great way to get to JFK. saves you about $50 but it does take about 30 mins longer than a taxi.
You pay the $5 fee when you exit
Cheapest way to get to JFK and as long as there is no track work, you can estimate door to door commute time most accurately with this
No more cabbing it to/from JFK!!!! Yeah!! ;)
1st for everything... 🚊
Way cheaper than a taxi, no car sickness, faster than a taxi actually
Connection to LIRR, $7 brings you to Manhattan in 20 minutes!
change at terminal 1 one to get to terminals 7 and 8 fastest
Dirty ass bathrooms
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.
Entering or leaving the system at the Jamaica or Howard Beach stations costs $5
I take a $6 taxi from my house to 7th Ave/53rd st E train stop, use my metro card for the subway $2.50 take the E uptown and queens to Sutphin Blvd. and take the airtrain $5 and it only takes an hour!
Faster than LGA by car during medium to heavy traffic
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!
The ride is super smooth. Fare is $5.00 and uses the MTA MetroCard
LIRR from Brooklyn to JFK is 22 minutes and $4 (weekend City ticket). Fastest, cheapest option. (Subway is 60 min + and cab is $50+)
Get your ticket before you get on train, it's way cheaper
Plan at least 23 minutes under the new, painfully less frequent schedule to get from Jamaica to Terminal 1.
Before your flight you need to visit Air Bar.
Busy as hell
Power outlets and USB power outlets can be found in the Upper Concourse at 2 of the 3 trianglar shaped info kiosks.
Watch your surroundings...this is South Jamaica Queens ...They don't play fair!!!
Be prepared to pay $5 extra bucks to either leave or get on the AirTrain. So stupid.
give yourself enough time and mass transit is really the way to go...saved me a lot of money
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.
Beware you can't smoke even if it's 10° and your train is two hours late. Smdh
Got a higher number terminal and in a hurry? Get off at Terminal 1 and take the terminals only train across the platform which runs in the opposite direction. You can be at terminal 8 in <8mn
Check the airbar
Great smoothies at the NY Deli coming off or on to the air train
Federal circle to terminal 1 takes about 5 minutes
High five everyone you pass that's heading down the escalator as you go up.
Of course here you can buy a joint Airtrain/LIRR Ticket #makessense
Just paid 2 bucks for bad coffee so I can sit on the nice side while waiting for the LIRR.
Super quick. Way better than a taxi or town car. Save yourself and your company the money and time.
Best way to get to JFK. 30 mins off peak is less than $12
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.
