  • Transfer between terminals
    Sep 23, 2013
    Please, from terminal 1 to terminal 2, with no time to waste, is it more faster to go on Air Train Jamaica station instead on Air train terminas transfer? Is it feasible and free? (or in desperation is it possible to walk between these terminals? Thanks.


    It is not possible to walk between terminals. Just follow the signs to Terminal 2. Inter-terminal train transfers are free.

    Hey I'm arriving at terminal 5 Jet Blue and I was wondering where to go as far as going to the Long Island Rail through Air Train. I appreciate the help


    JFK has done a wonderful job with their new Airtrain map. See Your route is the red one - Jamaica Station - you transfer a the Federal Circle.


  • From JFK T1 to 39th Ave Long Island
    Nov 2, 2012
    I will be arriving at 2 plus on Sunday. Need guidance on the most economical and convenient mode of getting to Hotel Vetiver at 39th Avenue Long Island city. There are 2 of us and we have 3 pieces of luggage.


    Don't know whether you are aware of Hurricane Sandy's devastation work on New York City & surrounding - much of subway & public transport system service as of this morning is still spotty; I suggest you call your hotel (tel. (718) 440-9933 or e-mail - they are in a better way to advise you. (Sunday is also the Marathon day - yes inspite of all the problems, they did not cancel it - adding even more traffic problems. Hope you get home safely!


  • from JFK to Port Authority
    Apr 28, 2012
    Arriving 4:40PM (scheduled time, it would more likely be around 5:00PM) Terminal 4 from Europe.I have a tourist visa. I have to take the bus to Port Authority and the last bus for Philadelphia is leaving at 9:15PM. Would I have enough time? Thank You!


    1. As an international arrival at JFK, you need to go through passport control, pick up your bags, and go through customs clearance - count on 35-40 minutes for this procedure. Thereafter you have the following choices to get to either Grand Central Station (42d Street & Lexington Ave. or to Penn Station (34th Street & 8th Ave.) - depending where your scheduled train (Amtrak) will depart from: (a) 1. Car & Van Service: Airlink N.Y. 877-599-8200; ASl County Express 800-914-4223; Super Shuttle Long Island 800-742-9824; All County Express 800-914-4223; Connecticut Limo 800-472-5466; (b) The NYC Airporter Bus, tel. 718-777-5111 runs every 30 minutes and costs around $16. For online tickets visit The bus stops across from the Grand Central Station and you can easily walk over with your bags. I think the bus to Penn Station is a separate one. Count on 1.5 hrs from Terminal to GC Station. Your time seems to be quite sufficient.
