JFK Large Taxi to Midtown

We have six people (four adults, two children 6and 9). Wondering about the taxis from JFK. Do they charge extra or is it the same flat rate as the others? Are they available often or will the rate be much longer? What is the usual wait time for a taxi at JFK? Thanks!

Taxis will only hold 4 individuals, so you will need two taxis. The flat fare from JFK to Manhattan is $45 plus $4 toll plus tip. Taxis are easy to get. There is a taxi line outside of each terminal. Do not accept a ride with anyone else who offers it.

There are some minivan taxis with a 3rd row seat for 3 people that could hold 6 passengers, but there'd be no room for any luggage. Your options are 2 cabs (generally $55-60 per cab with tip and toll) or order a minivan or stretch limo from one of the car services.

I like limores.net You can also get quotes from

A large 5-passenger taxi is in fact allowed to carry a sixth passenger as long as that passenger is a child under 7 who may sit on the lap of one of the adults in the back. However, with so many people in the cab, I do not knwo that there will be room for the luggage -- but that many passengers may indeed ride in one cab.
