AirTrain is a special mode of transport designed specifically for JFK airport passengers. With it, you can quickly get to any important location inside the airport, as well as to the destination beyond its borders. AirTrain is open 24/7. The trip inside the airport lasts from 2 to 5 minutes.
AirTrain rides are free in most cases. If you need to get to Jamaica Station or Howard Beach Stations, the trip will cost $8. Tolls can only be paid with a MetroCard.
Travel between locations within the airport
Perhaps the most important mission of AirTrain is to transport passengers between terminals. With this transport you can get to any of them. Passengers appreciate that the trips are very fast, comfortable and free.
Detailed information about AirTrain routes is displayed on the AirTrain Platform information monitors. You can also find real-time information on the official website of the airport.
With AirTrain you can get to the parking lot. Parking, where you can leave your car for a short period of time, is located at each terminal. You can find long-term parking lots near Lefferts Boulevard Station. Also with the help of this transport you can get to the points of car rental.
Travel outside the airport
With the help of AirTrain, passengers can get to the stops of “classic” transport. For example, there is a stop near Jamaica Station. Here you can take a train and use it to get to any point in the city.
AirTrain can take you to the subway. This is one of the most popular options because it is fast and inexpensive.
Finally, we note that AirTrain is adapted to the needs of people with disabilities. This applies to both trains and stations. There are places for wheelchairs on every train. The airport administration has made sure that everyone can travel comfortably.
