The proposed AirTrain LGA would provide a reliable, 30-min travel time from Midtown
Access is a key component of any world-class airport. Yet access to LaGuardia is a serious challenge with no direct rail link – the only major East Coast airport lacking one – and travel times by car are only getting worse. The proposed AirTrain project would provide a convenient, easy-to-use rail connection that offers travelers and employees reliable, predictable travel times to LaGuardia Airport. The Port Authority’s preferred alternative would have two on-airport stations and would include critical connections to the Long Island Rail Road and the New York City Subway, to provide a 30-minute ride from Midtown Manhattan.
