Get a downloadable guide to JFK’s AirTrain – in Chinese or Russian

It makes a city seem so civilized when there’s a fast, easy, inexpensive way to get to and from the airport.

The Port Authority of NY & NJ insists that the 24-hour AirTrain JFK puts JFK airport into that smart and classy category, even though taking the system is a tad complicated for an out-of-towner.


But it’s definitely worth it to give it a try. And to help you out, the Port Authority has put out a downloadable guide to what they call the  “fast, affordable, eco-friendly way to connect — directly from Kennedy International — with New York City Transit’s subways and buses and the Long Island Rail Road.”

The brochure includes details on how to use the service, the costs, available discounts, travel times, and a map of  the AirTrain system and of AirTrain JFK’s connections to rail transit in New York City and Long Island.  And it comes in English, Chinese (simplified and traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Korean and Russian.
