Our top-notch JFK Airport shuttles and taxis
New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world, but it’s also extremely large and busy. Trying to find your way from John F. Kennedy Airport can be complicated, but there is one extremely easy and safe transfer option; a taxi or private JFK shuttle.
Booking your airport shuttle from JFK in advance makes a world of difference, and at Welcome, we’re all about facilitating stress-free travel experiences. If you book with us, as soon as your plane touches down at the airport, your JFK shuttle driver will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals hall, holding a sign with your name on it. We provide all of our drivers with live updates on any schedule changes, so even if your flight is delayed or early, they will always be there when you land.
As you begin your New York JFK Airport transfer, your driver will answer any questions you may have about the Big Apple and will share some must-see spots you should check out while in the city. With all your transfer needs taken care of by Welcome Pickups, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
*Keep in mind that you’ll have a better chance of securing your preferred time slot if you book at least a week in advance, especially during popular local events or peak season.
If you’re also booking your return journey with us, it’s important to consider certain factors when scheduling your shuttle to JFK. Remember to check your flight time, and how long the journey to the airport will be, and double-check that you’re set to arrive either 2 hours before departure for domestic flights or 3 hours before for international flights.

Detailed directions for your JFK Airport transfer
John F. Kennedy Airport, more commonly known as JFK Airport, is the main international airport serving New York City. Located in Queens, a taxi or private shuttle from JFK Airport to Manhattan will take around 45 minutes.
Once your driver has picked you up from the arrivals hall and walked you to your vehicle, you’ll begin your ride into NYC. To begin your journey, your private JFK shuttle driver will take the I-678N from 130th Street. After around 1.6 km, they will take the Grand Central Parkway / I-278 E and cross the Robert F Kennedy Bridge onto Randall’s Island and the Harlem River bridge across to Manhattan. From there, the driver will use the local roads to drop you off at the doorstep of your accommodation. Taking into account NYC’s famous traffic levels, the best times to travel on the roads are between 10:00 and 15:00 and after 20:00 on weekdays, and before 12:00 and after 20:00 on weekends or holidays.
