If you’re not taxiing or Ubering from New York City to La Guardia Airport (or vice-versa) then there’s a good chance you’re taking public transportation. One of the popular routes is a Select Bus, known as the Q70-SBS bus aka the LaGuardia Link, which runs from the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue subway station in Queens express to La Guardia Airport, making stops at airport terminals B, C, and D (with an airport shuttle bus from Terminal B to Terminal A).
The fare for the Q70 Select Bus is currently $2.75. If you are transferring to or from the Q70 from another public bus or subway, there is no charge for the transfer if it is within two hours of when you paid the first fare.
Today, New York Governor Hochul announced that, beginning May 1, 2022, it will be free to all riders.
Is this a great deal? Probably not since, in most instances, passengers going to La Guardia Airport will be coming from another location via public subway or bus, and will have already paid the $2.75 for that leg of the trip. Now, if they made the Airtrain to JFK free, I’d be ecstatic.
