Great news if you’re a flyer into New York’s JFK airport, and are looking for a cheaper option to head into Manhattan. Lyft just announced they’ve lowered their Lyft Line pricing from JFK into the city to only $35, which is a great option for those wanting a ride-sharing option without the high price.

If you haven’t signed up for Lyft yet, you can also do so via my referral and get $50 in free ride credit.

  1. There is an even cheaper way to get to Manhattan I always use.
    That’s $5 for the AirTrain plus $2.50 or something for a subway ride.
    Even though we are always two people, it is just $15 which is still lower than $36.

  2. What about from LGA? I haven’t lived in NYC in 25 years, so I’m so out of touch. What’s the cheapest way in? TIA!
