JFK Airport Taxi Fare

$2.50 upon entry
$0.40 for each additional unit

Unit fare:

- 1/5 of a mile, when the taxi is traveling at more than 6 miles/hour

- 60 seconds when not in motion or traveling at less than 12 miles/hour.

The taximeter willl combine fractional measures of distance and time in accruing a unit of fare. Any combination of distance or time shall be computed by the taximeter.

The fare shall include pre-assessment of the unit currently being accrued; the amount due may therefore include a full unit charge for a final, fractional unit.

Night surcharge of $.50: 8:00 PM - 6:00 AM

Peak hour Weekday Surcharge of $1.00: MON - FRI 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Tolls enroute to destinations within New York City are the responsibility of the passenger. On all trips within the New York City, any bridge and tunnel tolls to the destination shall be paid by the passenger, who shall be informed before the start of the trip.

On all trips within the City of New York, return tolls shall not be charged except for trips over the Cross Bay Veterans, Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial, and Verrazano Narrows Bridges.

On trips beyond the City of New York, all necessary tolls to and from the destination shall be paid by the passenger.

Flat Fare from JFK Airport:

The Taxi & Limousine Commission is conducting a Flat Fare program for trips between (to and from) the Manhattan and JFK International Airport.

The flat fare is $45.00 plus any tolls. The meter will not be turned on and the night surcharge will not be added.

If passengers request multiple stops, the flat rate of $45.00 will be collected at the first stop in either Manhattan or John F. Kennedy Airport, and the meter will be turned on for the remainder of the trip. The metered fare should be collected at the last stop, from the last passenger.

find out about the AIR TRAIN.. on

Here are the most direct routes:
• Take AirTrain to Jamaica Station.
• At Jamaica Station, take a Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train to New York Penn Station.
New York Penn Station is a major transportation hub offering connections from New York City subways and buses, the LIRR, Amtrak® and NJ TRANSIT®.

Or, • Take AirTrain to Jamaica Station.
• At Jamaica Station, take the E subway to New York Penn Station.

How To Transfer From AirTrain At Jamaica Station

When you exit AirTrain at Jamaica Station, follow signs for the LIRR or the subway. You will pass through the fare gates and go down one or more levels to the LIRR or subway platform. This walk takes approximately 5 minutes.

Buying a ticket
To exit the AirTrain system at Jamaica Station, you need a Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard with at least $5 in value. You can buy a MetroCard at MetroCard vendors throughout the airport or at Jamaica Station.

To take the LIRR or subway, you must also pay the applicable fare. We recommend that you purchase your LIRR ticket before you board the train.

If you take the subway, you may purchase a single Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard with at least $7 in value to pay both the $2 subway fare and the $5 AirTrain fee.

if i were to take the airtrain to jamaica station and then take the subway to penn station, about how long would that take?

how long would it take and how much will it cost from JFK terminal 8 to west 119th street?

I¨m travellink from JFK to Newark. I need to know
the fare and the time of the travel, because I arrive at JFK on sunday 8 am and the fly at Newark is 11.50 am,
will I have enough time?
Thank you

if you are coming by international flight, you need a minimum of 1 hr to collect your bags and go through customs.. you should cater for 1 1/2 hr.

you will be in time if you take a taxi - $75 minimum + $15 tip to Newark airport - 1 1/2 hr, upto two hrs in heavy traffic.

You can ask one of the airport staff for suggestions or ask them to send you to the information desk.. who may help you.. but that will waste another hour.

DO NOT TAKE THE AIRTRAIN... that only takes you from JFK airport to Manhattan (centre of New York, in the opp direction)
