Cabs: yellow cabs are city run and controlled, they are metered and can be paid by cash, credit or debit card. Tipping is usually 15 to 20%. When you take a cab it’s a good idea to have the cross-street address of your location with you. For YOTEL, it is Tenth Avenue at W 42nd Street or between 41st and 42nd Streets. From 4pm - 5pm, there is a cab shift and it is very tough to find one.
Subway: public transport is the cheapest and quickest way to get to and from JFK. The subway can take you anywhere in Manhattan for $2.75. If you plan on using this as a primary means of transportation, purchase an "Unlimited 7-day Pass.". There is a timer that prohibits you from swiping your Metrocard twice within an 18-minute period. Rush hour is 7:30am to 9.30am and 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
