New York has three airports:
- La Guardia aiport, mainly used for internal flights, located in the Queens district. It's the airport nearest to the city centre, as its only 13 km's distance.
- Newark Liberty airport is situated in the near state of New Jersey and its 27 km's distance from the city centre.
- JFK airport, in the south east of the city, is 19 km's from Manhattan. This is the main airport and also an international airport with more than 49 million passengers per year, whilst Newark counts 35 million per year and La Guardia has "only" 25 million passengers per year.
New York has a very efficient public transport service, as its a city visited by thousands of tourists every day of the year. One of the most used is the subway, although its better not to use it at night because it may be dangerous. Buses, on the other hand, are not very popular with newyorkers.
One of the symbols of New York is the yellow taxi. New Yorks roads are full of these cars and taxi drivers may take advantage of tourists and try to rip them off. Taxi drivers also take a tip of 15%, on top of the money requested for the journey. The number of public taxis is very high as New York is a megalopolis that has a population of more than 18 million. To add to this there are thousands of tourists that visit the city every day, as it is a cultural and economic power famous worldwide.
Book your taxi straight away by filling out the form
Many people think about renting a car to visit the city, however petrol is much more expensive compared to many years ago and driving in a city like this can be a terrible idea, especially for tourists. Therefore, most people use private taxi transfers that dont have a taximeter, like public taxis do. Furthermore, many tourists and people that aren't familiar with the city get lost, confused by the many roads and streets of the "Big apple". So there's nothing better than a private taxi transfer which you won't have to share with other people and will take you to your chosen destination.
To book a taxi service to and from various New York airports, its enough to fill out the online booking form. Its important to know that its possible to ask for the transfer costs before hand as it will be automatically calculated after having filled out the form with some necessary information. The driver will wait at the airport and when you come out of the terminal you will recognise him immediately, as he will be holding a board with your name on it.
