Public transportation to/from NYC Airports

This is a quick summary of how to get to the major hotels in Jersey City from the 3 major NYC airports using public transportation. This information is already readily available on the web, but it is consolidated and summarized below. 
As a point of reference, a cab from NYC airports to downtown Jersey City is about $85 + tip and tolls ($50 from Newark Airport). Using the methods below should be no more than $10 per person each way. Alot at least 1.5 hours total travel time from the NYC airports, and at least 45 mins for Newark Airport. 

For trips to the airports from Jersey City, just reverse the itineraries. If transferring from the subway to the bus, tell the driver you wish to pay the transfer fare and use the same Metrocard on the bus as you did on the subway in order to obtain a reduced fare. Make sure you have enough money left on the Metrocard before re-swiping.
