Best & cheapest transport from Manchester airport to York

Hi I have been asked to book 4 people from Manchester Airport to York returning to airport two days later. Looking at the train, buses and taxi prices, the taxi is coming in cheaper per head? Taxi is through trip filler.com - could this be correct. Any ideas/suggestions, i would be really grateful.

check Transpennine rail for any offers as they run the Manchester Airport - York trains, no change usually needed. Not aware of any convenient bus or coach services. For 4 it is possible taxi might be cost effective, but you would need to book for both ways (do not know the web site you mention). Most economical of all, from Belfast, would probably be flight to Leeds/Bradford, then taxi to York.

On further checking train fares these seem to be from £11 per person each way depending on time and date of travel. Some journeys show £14 per person but if you allow £100 for 4 people for return journey I doubt you would get a 2 way taxi trip for this.

I'd agree absolutely - the trains are by far the easiest way to get from Manc airport to York.
