I'd recommend a taxi. You can hire them in advance, though I'm sure you can also hire at the terminal.

The least expensive option would likely be the MTA, but that requires bus-->train-->other train and depends on (a) how much time you have, and (b) how willing you are to risk taking the wrong train/bus. The MTA system is complex for those who aren't familiar with it.

Cheers

Best & cheapest are rarely the same

How many hours do you have for your connection? (Domestic or international arrival @ JFK?)

How many in your group?

Can you wrangle your luggage on public transport?

Just myself. Will fly domestic to LaGuardia and then JFK international. Several hours between flights. Luggage no problem.

At JFK use *only* a Yellow side cab from the dispatcher line or a car service you have arranged

Ignore all solicitations - they are illegal rides

IF you have sufficient time

LGA to JFK

Q70 bus to Jackson Heights > E train to Sutphin/ Archer > JFK Airtrain to the terminals
