Transportation for group of 17 from jfk to hilton hotel

Wondering what is the best and cheapest way to get a group of 17 from JFK to the Hilton (Avenue of the Americas)?

Simply take the JFK AirTrain to Jamaica and make an easy transfer to the subway (the E train).

You'd follow the very well-marked signage from the JFK AirTrain at Jamaica to the Manhattan bound E train in the direction of World Trade Center.

The E train stops at 5th Avenue and at 7th Avenue (almost directly underneath the Hilton) on West 53rd Street.

How about taxi services? Do they offer larger group autos? (Minivan or larger) I saw it is a flat rate into manhattan. My thoughts were we could split the costs with this option. Thank you for responding so quickly!

You would need 4-5 (fixed rate) yellow cabs.

Car services could provide a passenger van, but you would need two of those:

Air Train is $5/person Subway $2.50/person (or start an unlimited pay-per-ride Metrocard)

Route to your hotel as advised above is quite easy.

Here is the subway map: http://www.mta.info/maps/submap.html

Is this a group of adults? And when are you arriving?

All State has large vehicles but they're vey expensive. www.allstatelimo.com +1 212 333 3333

You would need 5 taxi's. It is $52.50 plus toll and tip so generally about $70. per taxi.

The train is very fast and very easy and will be by far the most economical and it keeps you all together.
