Transfer from Airport to Hotel

I have heard that the cost of a limousine transfer tfrom JFK to Manhattan is the same cost as a yellow cab? Is this correct?

Any idea of cost?

Taxi rate is fixed, JFK to Manhattan, at $45 not including tip and toll. Final cost will be $55 to $60. A town car from a car service will cost about the same.

What is the cost from LGA to Times Square (Hampton Inn)? Is it cheaper to take a bus?

Car service costs are about the same from JFK to Manhattan, From LGA a cab may be a couple of bucks cheaper if you don't hit traffic. (cabs are flat rate from JFK and EWR (newark) but metered from LGA - Car services are flat rate from all airports. Starting prices for a "town car" are about $46 from JFK, $45 from EWR and $31 from LGA. Prices for a real LImousine are higher. Prices are for the car or taxi, not per person. A Taxi from JFK is $45 from EWR $50-70 depending on the "zone" in manhattan you go to, but will be told to you by the dispatcher at EWR. From LAG a taxi will run $25 to $40 or more depending on the area and traffic.

All prices do not include tip (15-20%) and tolls. ($5-6 from EWR, less than that or none at all from LAG or JFK depending onr route)

Bus from most airports $15 or less per person, Train from EWR $12ish, from JFK subway $7, no subway or train from LAG, you can do a city bus to the subway combo for $2/per person (buy a metrocard before getting on the bus) but it is not easy if you are not familiar with the areas/system.
