LaGuardia Airport Shuttles and Taxis
Arriving in the bustling and vibrant city of New York is so exciting. We know that all you want to do is get to your hotel as quickly as possible so you can start to explore. That’s why we recommend taking a reliable, private LaGuardia Airport shuttle or taxi to your destination.
From the moment your plane arrives at the airport, your trained driver will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals hall. After a warm greeting, your driver will lend a hand with your luggage and lead you to your pre-selected LaGuardia Airport shuttle. All of our drivers receive updates on any changes to your flight’s schedule, so there’s no need to worry if you’re delayed. While you enjoy your personalised LaGuardia Airport transfer, your local driver will answer any questions you have about New York and point out a few must-see spots around the city. Let Welcome Pickups take care of all your transfer needs so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your ride into Manhattan.
You can also book a Welcome Pickups taxi within the city or hail a New York taxi from the street, through an app like Uber, or from one of the local taxi companies.

Cost of a taxi from LaGuardia Airport
Unlike JFK Airport, airport shuttles from LaGuardia don’t operate with set-rate fares. Instead, you will be charged using a taximeter that will calculate your fare based on the distance you travel and the time of day. The average cost of a LaGuardia Airport shuttle ride to Manhattan is $40 (€37). Keep in mind that additional fees for luggage, traffic and tolls will be added to the final fare, as well as an airport access fee of $1.75 (€1.60) and a peak-time surcharge of $1 (€0.90) which does not apply on legal holidays. Remember to ensure the taximeter reads $3 (€2.70) at the start of the trip.
At Welcome Pickups, we believe in complete transparency when it comes to our pricing. The price you see when you book is the price you’ll pay, regardless of changes in traffic or weather, or even tolls! So if you’d prefer to rely on a set-rate fee with no hidden extras, why not book your personalised LaGuardia Airport shuttle in advance with Welcome Pickups?
