I know that this is not strictly related but I need to know. I we arrive at 9pm in Newark is it possible to make 11:35 pm flight from JFK. How much does the airport-airport transfer cost. Thanks a million

Yoy would be cutting it very, very close with your connection. There is no way you could do it if you had checked baggage. A cab from Newark to JFK would probably cost around $60-$70.

Traffic wil be the issue. It can get EXTREMELY slow going from New Jersey into Manhattan. What airline are you flying? Maybe they have some sort of shuttlebus connection service.

Go to www.panynj.gov, and click on the "Airports" link, then click on "Connecting Between Airports". There is information on buses and taxi services between the airports. At that time of night, traffic is usually not too bad, but I must stress the word usually. If you land at Newark on time and the traffic is not too bad, you'll probably make it, but it will be close. However, the delays for New York's airports and roads, well, don't get me started!

Well i know that the bus terminal at terminal B has buses to and from JFK for about $20.00 I don't know how long they take, but it isn't going to be a short trip.

As far as going through Manhattan,it doesn't look good. EWR arrivals delays are common,as the way the winds are will detirmine if you'll get a "straight shot" in or be doing a long oval to enter the runway pattern...which can add 20-25 minutes to your arrival time. Been there done that more times than I can count. Even assuming you hit the gate on the advertised,you won't really be on the road for at least 30 minutes. If you're at terminal "A" in EWR,the busses will stop aand make pickups at terminals "B" and "C",further slowing you down. Quick ride from EWR to the Lincoln tunnel,but a crawl fro there to midtown. Figure an hour from "moving" to midtown Manhattan,and at least the same to JFK from midtown. I'm just trying to be realistic,as it sure beats ripping your hair out as you putter at 10 mph thu traffic. The fastest route would be direct from EWR,south on 95 to the Goethels bridge,accross Staten Island,over the Varrazzano bridge and the Belt Pkwy to Kennedy. At that hour a cab will get you there in time,but will cost big $$. Just don't dilly-dally getting from the plane to the cab. Maybe Olympia Trails runs a bus to JFK from EWR using that route. Good luck.

What airline are you flying in on? If it is an international flight then I highly doubt you will be able to make it. I think that you are pushing it very close and relying on too many things to be operating on time. Good Luck.

Just to add on to NKP S2, cab fare between EWR-JFK cost me $90-100 USD+tip (although, a tip is not compulsory). By the way, the cab ride can shave a few years off your life the way they drive here.

Cheers,

P.S.-- Be prepared to stand in a queue for at least 5-15 minutes for a cab.
