Worth it only if you’re travelling by yourself and not in a hurry. The SuperShuttle (and other shuttle services) will pool you with other travelers to and from the airport. Follow the signs to the Ground Transportation Desk after having cleared customs and arrange for your ride using the courtesy phone or by asking an agent at the desk. Shuttles leave every 15-30 minutes, then there’s a journey time of 60-120 minutes depending on whether you’re the first or last drop-off. Going to the airport, call and arrange for pick-up time (you’ll be given a 15 minute time window).

Yellow cab

Telephone +1 212 692 8294
Website http://www.yellowcabnyc.com/
Cost USD 45 flat fare, plus USD 5 tolls and tips, for approximate US 60 total.

A yellow cab may be the default option, but be aware that a car service is more comfortable and is competitively priced if you book in advance. Although licensed for four passengers, more than three is a squeeze. Taxis operate with a USD 45 flat fare rate plus tolls and tips to and from Manhattan (meter will be applied after the first drop-off if you make several stops). Journey time 40-90 minutes depending on traffic. Note that not all taxis accept credit cards.
