Transfers from Newark Airport (EWR) - what are your options? 

Looking for the easiest route into New York? You’ll always make it there, you’ll make it anywhere, it’s up to you, New York, Neeeeeew Yooooooork! Pre-book your private transfer from Newark Airport to Manhattan and head straight to your hotel. If you're feeling like Mr Big then hit the city in a limousine. But private transfers don't have to cost lots and you could book a car of a sensible length or a minibus if there's a few in your squad. 


A shared shuttle bus can also mean a convenient start to your NY stay. Share a ride with some fellow travellers as it drops off at a couple of hotels. It takes a little longer than a private transfer, but is a little bit cheaper too. If a shuttle, limo or minibus sounds like your jam then book one before you go. Save time and money at the airport and get downtown in no time.

Thinking of jumping in a big yellow taxi? Well here's a word of warning. There's no flat rates from Newark. Also, it won't be an NYC cab.
