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.
