JFK International Airport - Shuttle - Transfer

Hello my dear friends,

I'm planning to go to New York City in May 2016, but I have a doubt. What shuttle company recommend to get from John F. Kennedy Airport to Long Island City, NY 11101?

I researched some of them (eg CarmelLimo.com, Dial7.com, Airportshuttles.com, Mozio.com, Allstatelimo.com, Etsairportshuttle.com, Shuttlefare.com, Northsideluxury.com, Easterncarservice.com) but they have positive and negative feedback. I really do not know what I can do or what to choose.

I will appreciate your help. Thank you.

PS: could be a shared shuttle or a private transfer. We are four people.

The simplest option is a NYC taxi from the taxi ranks outside each terminal. Never accepta. Ride fom someone who approaches you. Cost is fixed into Manhattan at $52 plus any tolls and a tip. Usually $70 total. Shared. Service are not recommended. The train for $8-$14/person is another option.

..I could be wrong, but believe the flat rate is only for rides to/from Manhattan.. would it not be on meter to LIC?;-) Dial 7 and Carmel .. both popular and around for eons will offer a flat rate to which you add tip;-) Best.. and EnJOY!

..according to the Taxi & Limousine info site, the flat rate of $52.80 applies exclusively for trips to/from Manhattan.. all other destinations are on meter.. so in your case, Carlos R, a cab will be on meter and traffic dependent to LIC! If looking to for a flat rate, check the car services mentioned.. www.dial7.com/ www.carmellimo.com/ for a quote.. you only need to add tip since there is no toll to LIC from JFK:-) Keep Enjoyin'!

That,s true. I didn,t catch the LIC part.

Will estimate the cost with addresses but it will depend on traffic.
