In the meantime, start planning your trip to the big apple!
Download the Curb App 🚕 (exclusive to Yellow Cab only, request a ride just like Uber/Lyft. Already in a yellow cab? The app allows you to enter your cab’s code to pair & pay for the ride via the app)
For walking directions and any public transportation 🚇 needs, use Google Maps (Google is the most accurate app of the bunch)
Uber/Lyft (download the apps ahead of time and beware of surcharges)
Coming from JFK? You can:
AirTrain Jamaica Station 🚉 → Long Island Railroad to Penn Station 34th Street, which is walking distance to Hudson Yards, or you could cab/subway to your destination from there (then you don't have to deal with traffic!)
AirTrain → Jamaica Station >→ E Train
Take NYC Yellow Cab (flat rate is $52 + applicable toll & tip is customary) (there’s a line at the airport to hop in)
Flying into Newark?
🛬AirTrain → Newark Penn Station → NY Penn Station (follow signs for AirTrain)
