What if I arrive...

Giulia, taking public transit from either JFK or Newark is very easy. If you're landing at JFK, you can take the JFK Airtrain, which is an airport peoplemover, from the terminals to Jamaica Station for connection to either the Long Island Railroad, which is a commuter railroad, or the subway.

The link below has all the information you need to know about getting from JFK to Times Square by public transit.

http://nativenewyorker10454.blogspot.com... (Getting from JFK to Times Square - Native New Yorker Blog)

If you're landing at Newark-Liberty Airport, you can take the the Newark Airtrain monorail from the terminals to the Newark-Liberty Airport train station, where a connection can be made to NJ Transit, which will take you the rest of the way to the City.

Once in the City, a connection can be made to the uptown (northbound) #1, 2 or 3 subway lines (Red Line on the subway map), which will take you from Penn Station to Times Square.

The one way fare from Newark Airport to Penn Station in New York City, with connection to the Newark Airtrain, will cost you $15, while the fare on the subway is $2.25.

I hope this infomration is very helpful. If you have any questions or need travel directions while in town, just drop me a line by clicking on the avatar and e-mail icon in the profile. I'll be glad to help.

Good luck

There are timetables for trains and buses in NYC, but most of them show up so frequently that it doesn't matter-you just walk to the bus stop or train station and wait for the next one that shows up.

In any case, if you need any information about transit in NYC, you can go to www.mta.info.

You have a couple of options (from cheapest to most expensive, per person) to get from JFK to Times Square.

Option 1: Take the Q10 bus to Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike and then transfer to the E train to the Port Authority Bus Terminal (a block from Times Square). If you buy a Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard, this will cost you $2.25 for the Q10, with a free transfer to the subway.

Option 2: Take the AirTrain to Jamaica and then take the E train to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The fare is $5.00 for the AirTrain and $2.25 for the E train, if you use a Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard, for a total of $7.25.

Option 3: Take the AirTrain to Jamaica and then take the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station. The fare is $5.00 for the AirTrain and $8.75 for the Long Island Railroad (remember to buy before boarding the train, to avoid an onboard surcharge). From there, you can either walk 8 blocks or take the 2 or 3 trains 1 stop to Times Square (this will cost you another $2.25)
This will cost a total of $16 per person.

Newark to Times Square:

Option 1: Take the NJT #62 bus to Newark Penn Station. From there, take the PATH to Lower Manhattan. From there, take the Bronx-bound 2 or 3 train to Times Square-42nd Street.
The fare is $1.50 for the #62, $1.75 for the PATH, and $2.25 for the subway (using a Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard) for a total of $5.50.

Option 2: Take the NJT #62 bus to Newark Penn Station. From there, take the #108 bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and walk 1 block to Times Square.
The fare is $1.50 for the #62 and $5.50 for the #108, for a total of $7 (ask for a transfer from the #62 driver to see if you can get a discount on the #108)

Option 3: Take the NJT #62 bus to Newark Penn Station. From there, take the NJT Northeast Corridor or North Jersey Coast Line to NY Penn Station. From there, you can either walk or take the 2 or 3 train to Times Square.
The fare is $1.50 for the #62 bus, $5.00 for the train, and $2.25 for the subway, for a total of $8.75.

I hope this information was helpful. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in NYC.
