To travel from LaGuardia to Manhattan, first, you need to take the bus to a subway station. If you are headed to Midtown or Downtown, take bus Q70 to Roosevelt Avenue. Here, you can transfer to subway lines E, M, F, R and 7. If you are going to the Upper East Side or Upper West Side, take the bus M60 to 125th Street. Public transport is especially cheap. Keep in mind that you will need to change multiple times, not so handy after a long flight and with lots of luggage.

Erics Tip: I would recommend taking a taxi to and from LGA Airport, it’s just the easiest way. The small or the large buses are also a good option but take longer. Don’t try to take public transportation, it’s just not worth all the hassle.
