Yello cab is cheaper, but is there a reason to get hotel shuttle instead?

I did the same trip by Uber this week.

If you get a yellow cab make sure it’s from the official taxi place not the drivers that loiter near the exit. Or else they’ll charge you a fortune.

WE got a yellow cab last time, I seem to recall there being a fixed price set up for airport-manhattan.

Do the subway - much easier and a LOT cheaper

There is fixed fare in a yellow cab so including all tolls, tax and a tip you’re looking at about $65.

Subway is easy as long as you have a manageable amount of luggage- air train to Jamaica then swap to the LIRR to Penn station (presuming Penn station is near your hotel as it’s v close to Madison sq gardens). Can’t remember the cost but it’s cheaper than a cab and often quicker if it’s rush hour.

Alternatively, get an Uber.

No way would I bother with a hotel shuttle, especially if it’s more money.
