"A bit of a toytown effort really.." John F. Kennedy Tip by sourbugger
John F. Kennedy, New York City: 96 reviews and 95 photos
The Airtrain at JFK has finally arrived after years of delay, accidents, leaves on the line, the wrong sort of snow (oh no, hang on a moment I'm thinking about our rail network in England)
The Airtrain at JFK is late however, and only runs around the airport and out to a couple of the Subway lines.
Before it started this year (2004) you could get a free shuttle bus to Howard Beach station, then only pay a couple of Dollars to get to central New York.
The shuttle bus is now discontnued, and a trip on the Airtrain once you leave the main airport area will set you back FIVE dollars. This is a very stupid idea - environmentally. It will drive people towards more polluting forms of transport.
I did wonder however, if you could get off at the last parking lot stop and just walk to the station - thus using the Airtrain for free?
