Rent a Charter Bus for LaGuardia Airport Transfers

While traveling to or from New York City, there’s a chance you’ll be flying through LaGuardia Airport—one of three major airports serving NYC. Located in northern Queens, this waterfront hub may be the smallest, but it’s also the closest to Midtown Manhattan. Only 8 miles away from the core of the Big Apple, LaGuardia is a popular choice for travelers looking to waste no time hitting the city streets.

Keep in mind: LaGuardia Airport is currently undergoing a major renovation that impacts ground transportation. But rest easy—GOGO Charters has a few tips for navigating the busy scene during your travels.

About LaGuardia Airport


LaGuardia Airport—or LGA—has four terminals (A, B, C and D) with about a dozen airlines operating among them. Currently, only Terminals C and D are connected. This is where you’ll find gates servicing Delta, Frontier, Spirit, and WestJet airlines. Terminal A is the least trafficked and most secluded, servicing only JetBlue, and Terminal B is the busiest. Go to Terminal B if you’re flying Air Canada, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, or United Airlines.

Currently, LaGuardia Airport is engaged in an ambitious renovation project that began in 2016. Renovations include connecting all of the terminals (in addition to rebuilding them), improving the roadway system, creating a new parking infrastructure, and providing better transportation with an AirTrain. In essence, the construction workers are building an entirely new airport on top of the existing one while working to keep it fully operational. As you can imagine, this project has an effect on surrounding traffic and ground transportation.

Choosing Group Transportation To and From LaGuardia Airport

With major renovation plans underway, there’s a lot to be excited about for the future of LaGuardia Airport.  But for now, travelers need to be especially mindful of how construction can affect their plans. During this time, car parking will be limited, and customers are encouraged to find other means of traveling to and from the airport.

Charter Bus

Rent a minibus or motorcoach to transport your group to and from LaGuardia Airport with ease. An 18-passenger minibus can get you through traffic with the least amount of hassle if you have a small group in tow. If you’re traveling with a large group with a lot of luggage, a 56-passenger motorcoach is the most reliable way to ensure you arrive at the same time and in the right place. You’ll also enjoy direct travel without any stops or extra pick-ups along the way, as well as premium amenities you won’t find on public transit: cushioned seats, on-board lavatories, free WiFi, and TV monitors with a DVD player.

Public Transit

LaGuardia is the only one of NYC’s major airports with no link to the MTA subway system, so you’ll need to hop on a bus. If you’re making plans this way, the MTA has a full list of public transportation transfers to LGA. However, the logistics here are complicated for group travel and you’ll need to plan meticulously. You’ll be challenged with pre-purchasing bus fare, knowing which bus line you need, and keeping everyone together. If you’re unprepared for relying on LaGuardia’s options for public transportation, let GOGO Charters handle your trip.


With the current state of construction at LaGuardia, hailing a cab is complicated. During peak times, travelers may need to take a shuttle bus to a designated taxi stand or area to be picked up by a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. Keeping your group all together and on schedule during this process will be challenging. You may also need to split up between multiple rideshares and can’t be sure you all will arrive at the airport or your NYC destination on time, at the same time. To make sure you can keep your group together, opt for a charter bus rental.

Pick-Up and Drop-Off for Charter Buses

Charter bus drop-offs at LaGuardia Airport can be simple affairs. Know which terminal your flight will depart from, and ask your driver to bring you straight there. You should be able to hop off at the curb outside the terminal.

Pick-ups, however, will require more planning and coordination. During the renovation, some terminals won’t allow you to be picked up curbside. You may need to arrange with your charter bus driver to have your group picked up in a particular location off-site. As construction progresses, pick-up location requirements may adjust, so communicate directly with your driver throughout your pick-up or drop-off process. If you encounter an unanticipated change to your designated pick-up location, you can call your driver directly and sort it out in real-time.
