Riding On AirTrain

Thu Jan 06, 2005 8:12 am

Usually when I go to EWR, I ride the AirTrain a few times to see what aircraft are parked around the airport, and to get a few pictures. During my last trip, though, a security guard asked for my boarding pass (probably because of my large SLR and camera bag), and I said I did not have one. He said that you have to be a ticketed passenger to ride on AirTrain. Is this true? I have rode on the AirTrain many times in the past, without any incidents.

BTW Is photography allowed on it also? I have been yelled at for doing that too.

Of course you do not have to be a ticket passenger.

Just tell them you are going to pick someone up if they ask questions like that.

I didn't really feel like lying to him, since he had seen me go by about 3 times already.  Laugh out loud

No you do not need a ticket, and yes they ban photography on the EWR and JFK Airtrains as well as the PATH all operated by the Port Authority.

I believe photography is prohibited on all Port Authority property without prior permission.
