EWR to Brooklyn -- cheaper options?

Hi,

I'm new-ish to Bay Ridge, been there less than a year. For the first time since moving there, I took a trip via Newark Airport. I used King's Taxi to get there, at $45 plus tolls and tip. It was reasonable enough. Coming home, I stupidly just got in the taxi line. The price ended up being $66 plus tolls ($11 for the Verrazano, $8 for the Goethals, and about a dollar for the turnpike). By the time we tipped, we'd spent nearly a hundred dollars. It's only about 15 miles away!

Aside from shuttles with other passengers, are there cheaper options than this? Any car services to recommend?

Thanks!

LC

Check some of the local car services rates. If you find one arrange a return pick up at the airport for your next trip. Be sure they have the flight information, arrival time, etc. to reduce your waiting time at Newark. Not much can be done about the tolls except maybe move to Staten Island.
