Newark / La guardia airport transfer?? HELP??

Hi

I am flying from the UK to Newark airport and need to pick up a connecting flight in LaGuardia, I have a 3hr 45min window in total to get to LaGuardia.

Is this a reasonable time frame? and what is the quickest/cheapest transport please?

Thank you very much for your answers

The airport web site lays out the various options...depending on time of day and day of week you should be ok, with the big variable being the time it takes to clear immigration and customs. You may need every one of those 3 hours and 45 minutes considering check-in times, though...

The previous poster gave you info on going from JFK airport to LaGuardia BUT you are coming into NEWARK which is a totally different situation! From Newark you can take the airtrain in the terminal to the regular NJ transit train that goes into NYPenn Station.(NOT NEw JERSEY Penn station). Then you can take a taxi to LaGuardia OR you can take an express bus servicefrom Newark all the way to Laguardia but that is 24$ and depending on time of day you will deal with traffic through the tunnel under the river to New York. I am not sure if there is another tain you could take from the train station in Manhattan to LaGuardia which is in the borough of Queens. It is a complicated transfer.

hI again, I just copied this from th eNYC forum

ETS Air Shuttle (718) 221-8344 - $25

A little cheaper is a bus to the Port Authority in NYC and another
