JFK to Times Square - best way to arrive for 5 pax

We are arriving around 10ish am in November - 5 passengers with 1 large suitcase ea and 1 carry on case ea. As we have so many bags what are the best options for transfers from JFK? Not keen on a mini bus and do not want to use a shared shuttle service, so the concern is how will we all fit into one vehicle..most private companies are showing that pretty much no vehicle can carry all our luggage. Thanks :)

Hey juljas:-) There's always public transport..the subway will get you right there..if that's not an option, would check with a car service like Carmel or Dial 7 and see what they can offer;-) Enjoy!

You should fit in a minivan from a private car service like

dial7.com

allstatelimo.com

If you don't, split up and take 2 vehicles.

A couple transport options are the airtrain and airport bus services:

Neither takes you to directly to Times Square, but both make it easily accessible by subway.

Here is another option:

Of course, there are always taxis which offer a flat rate of $45, but for 5 people you will need two cabs. Note that the various car services listed in these postings should be prearranged. DO NOT accept transport from any of the people soliciting customers in the baggage/exit areas of the airport. They are doing so illegally, are unscrupulous, and cannot be trusted to get you to your destination safely or at a fair price.
