JFK International Airport
Both LIRR and NYC Subway provide connecting service to the JFK Airtrain; LIRR is faster but more expensive.
Via LIRR: Visit the ticket counter or a vending machine in the LIRR concourse to purchase tickets to Jamaica Station. Check the LIRR departures board to find a train stopping at Jamaica (most do). Speak with a ticket agent or conductor if you have any questions or concerns, and hold on to your LIRR ticket - you will need it to tranfer to the Airtrain.
Via Subway: Take an uptown E train to the Sutphin Boulevard station in Queens (which is located underground below Jamaica Station). Exit the subway station and follow signs for the Airtrain located upstairs (note: your subway fare does not include the cost of the Airtrain; you will be required to purchase an Airtrain ticket at the Airtrain boarding area).
There is no direct train service to LaGuardia Airport, but taxis and shuttle buses are available. Travelers can also take an uptown E train to the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue (or LIRR to Woodside) and transfer to the Q70 bus to LaGuardia terminals B, C & D.
Madison Square Garden
Meadowlands Sports Complex / MetLife Stadium / IZOD Center
NJ Transit offers rail service to MetLife Stadium for Jets and Giants games and other major events, and bus service to the IZOD Center for concerts and events.
Visit the ticket counter or a vending machine in the NJ Transit concourse to purchase tickets to the Meadowlands station. Take NJ Transit from Penn Station to Secaucus Junction, then transfer to a Meadowlands-bound train (or an IZOD-bound bus).
Newark Liberty International Airport
Both Amtrak and NJ Transit provide connecting service to the Newark Airport Airtrain; NJ Transit is less expensive and offers more frequent service.
Visit the ticket counter or a vending machine in the NJ Transit concourse to purchase tickets to Newark Airport Rail Station (note: this is not the same station as Newark Penn Station). After purchasing your tickets locate a NJ Transit departures board - any train with an "airplane" symbol will stop at the Newark Airport station. Speak with the conductor when you are boarding if you have any questions or concerns, and hold on to your NJ Transit ticket - you will need it to transfer to the Airtrain.
Port Authority Bus Terminal
Take an uptown A, C, or E train to 42nd Street.
