traveling between jfk and new haven by train:

My friend, there are 2 ways to get from JFK to New Haven.

Option 1 LIRR/Amtrak

Step 1: take the Airtrain from the terminal to Jamaica Station. Please listen for the announcement "Station D: Jamaica Station."

Step 2: at Jamaica Station, purchase a $5 MetroCard from the MetroCard Vending Machine, and exit the Airtrain system into Jamaica Station. The $5 will be deducted from the MetroCard, when exiting the Airtrain system.

Step 3: Once thought turnstile (faregate), follow the directional signs to the Long Island Railroad. Purchase you're LIRR ticket from the ticket machines on the pedestrian bridge overlooking the platform. An off peak ticket from Jamaica Station to Penn Station is $5.25. If you're arriving on a weekends, you can purchase a CityTicket for $3.25.

Once you purchase your ticket, look at the display board on the pedestrian bridge for the train heading to Penn Station.

Step 4: at Penn Station, follow the directional signs to the Amtrak Concourse. Once there take the Northeast Regional, Vermonter or Acela Express Services from Penn Station to New Haven. The one way fare on Amtrak ranges from $34, for the NE Regional, to $71 for the Acela Express.


Option 1 Subway/Metro-North (this route is longer but cheaper)

Step 1: take the Airtrain from the terminal to Jamaica Station. Please listen for the announcement "Station D: Jamaica Station."

Step 2: at Jamaica Station, purchase a $7 MetroCard from the MetroCard Vending Machine, and exit the Airtrain system into Jamaica Station. Five dollars will be deducted from the MetroCard, when exiting the Airtrain system. The remaining $2 will use for the subway.

Step 3: Once thought turnstile (faregate), follow the direction signs to the New York City subway. Upon entering the subway, take the Manhattan-bound (westbound) "E" express train (Blue Line on the map) from Sutphin Blvd-JFK/Jamaica Station to Lexington Avenue/53rd Street.

Step 4: at Lexington Avenue/53rd Street, following the directional signs and transfer to the downtown (southbound) #6 train. Take the southbound #6 train from 51st Street to Grand Central-42nd Street.

Step 5: at Grand Central-42nd Street, exit the subway into Grand Central Terminal and transfer to Metro-North's New Haven Line, which will take you from Grand Central to New Haven. A one way off peak ticket from GCT to New Haven will cost you $14. If you're travel during evening rush-hour, the one way peak fare is $18.50. Please purchase you ticket before boarding.
