AirTrain JFK, which connects travelers by rail to and from the airport, is celebrating its sixth year in operation. Since its first year, ridership on the service has literally doubled as airport travelers learn that it is the quickest, least expensive way to get to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport.
To mark its sixth year of
operation, the Port Authority has introduced new amenities at AirTrain JFK
facilities including interactive signs and a new Welcome Center at the Jamaica
Station. These improvements make access to AirTrain services and navigation
through terminal facilities even easier for airport passengers.
"AirTrain JFK has exceeded
our every expectation in its six years of operation," said Anthony Coscia, the
Port Authority chairman. "It is low-cost, hassle-free and reliable — three big
pluses for riders traveling to and from JFK."
Port Authority Executive
Director Chris Ward said, "Fast, Cheap, Reliable. There is no better way to get
to JFK and we are pleased that ridership continues to boom. We also hope the
new improvements we have made will keep those numbers climbing and continue to
improve the customer’s experience."
