Taxi or Airport Shuttle from JFK to Time Square

Last time i was there we caught a shuttle which was so so priced but we had so many stops on the way so was thinking this time we would catch a taxi.<BR><BR>Is this the best option cost wise ??

    It’s a flat rate for a taxi (make sure you take a yellow taxi from the taxi line) from JFK to Manhattan -$45 for the trip.

    here is a link to some other ground transportation options from JFK

    I did the New York Airport Service Express Bus once and didn’t find it to be to bad of a service for the price. If you’re one person that might be the way to go. If you have 2 or 3 people then a taxi might be best.

    I don’t recommend taking the subway, particularly if you have large pieces of luggage.
