JFK Airport to Long Island City Transfer

JFK Airport to Long Island City Transfer 1

Between JFK Airport and Long Island City (Queens), there are no small shuttle buses. It’s very difficult to give good travel advice as this depends on where you need to go. You can often get to your hotel or apartment with the AirTrain and then the subway. This is often the cheapest way.

Another option is to take a yellow cab at JFK Airport. Depending on where you need to be, this shouldn’t cost more than US$35 or $45. This price is for up to three people. If you are travelling with more people, taking a pre-booked Mini Van is a better option. You can do so by following the steps below. You can book a Mini Van (with a driver) for up to six people and in doing so you will know the exact cost before you leave.
