Reader Question: Are there Hotels with FREE shuttles into Manhattan?

NYC Insider Guide Answer: No. There are almost no hotels in NYC that offer free shuttles into Manhattan. I say almost, just in case I’ve missed something, but really, the answer is none. There are free shuttles to most of the hotels near the airports, but not to Manhattan hotels.

JFK Taxi Car Shuttle Costs

JFK to Midtown is a flat rate of $52 by taxi (. Whether you choose taxi, town car, shuttle or public transportation is your choice depending on the number of people and how much luggage you have.

JFK Taxi Car Shuttle Costs

AirTrain JFK provides easy access to both the Long Island Rail Road and MTA’s New York City subway and bus system, with connections at both the Jamaica and Howard Beach station stops

JFK Town Car Service

A popular and well-liked NYC Town Car Service company is Carmel.

There's hardly any difference in price or service, as NYC Limos, also called "black cars" or "town cars," are very competitive. Their rates tend to be very similar to taxis, and many times, even less with online coupons and specials.

Another great Limo Town Service in NYC is Groundlink. Use promo code "RIDER" or "SAVEGL" for 10% off your next ride.

JFK Shuttle Bus Service

One advantage of shuttles is you do not have to pay tolls or round trip fares.

New York City Airport Shuttles

Go Airlink Airport Shuttle Bus - door to door service. LGA/JFK/EWR.

NYC Airporter Shuttle Bus - pick up and drop off at one of several central Manhattan locations with free transfer to smaller hotel vans once in Manhattan. JFK/LGA only.

Airport Shuttle Buses charge per person, while taxis and NYC Limos are one rate for up to 4 people (or more for larger limos). However, shuttle and van services vary when it comes to taking you door to door, and many will drop you off (or pick you up) only at a central Manhattan location. Some offer another complimentary car that will transfer you to your stop. Some will not and you can walk, take the subway or hail a taxi that will likely be around $10.
