Port Authority reveals possible alternatives to LaGuardia AirTrain


More than four months after Governor Kathy Hochul hit the brakes on a proposal to build a $2.1 billion AirTrain to LaGuardia Airport, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey released a set of alternative options late Wednesday that could connect travelers to the Queens airport via public transit.

The Port Authority released 14 alternative options Wednesday, including two subway extension, five light rail routes, five bus options, ferry service, and so-called “emerging technologies.”
