LaGuardia International Airport is almost universally reviled by New Yorkers. There are lots of reasons to complain about the shabby, crowded airport, and perhaps most vexing of all is the fact that LaGuardia is not accessible by subway or rail. However, LaGuardia is somewhat redeemed by the Q70 bus line, which runs express between Queens’ Jackson Heights–Roosevelt Avenue subway station and the airport. Thanks to this convenient and quick option, it’s possible to travel from LaGuardia to Times Square in the span of one hour.
- In contrast to the nearby John F. Kennedy airport, travelers cannot get to LaGuardia Airport using the subway or other metro rails
- The Q70 bus line runs express from LaGuardia to Queens’ Jackson Heights–Roosevelt Avenue subway station
- Using the Q70 bus line and the 7 train from the Jackson Heights station stop, it is possible to travel from LaGuardia to Times Square in approximately one hour
“My total travel time from LaGuardia to the tourist hub: just about one hour, which in New York City travel time—particularly to and from an airport—is basically nothing.”
