    I'd appreciate advice on getting from USMMA to LGA. I am at KP several times a year for business in my own car but have to get a co-worker to the airport on the afternoon of a work day. I admit I will be trying to get on the road south and off LI via VN Bridge before rush hour, and I really don't want to leg over to Laguardia first.

    Does Super Shuttle come to the Steamboat Rd. gate? What's the best address to give for a shared van service? Call a taxi to come to gate? Or drop co-worker at LIE station taxi stand in Great Neck? It's business travel expense, but we like to be prudent with funds, so no dedicated limo service...

    Thanks, no rush, just working up expenses for a future trip and trying to eliminate rental car.

    Regular rate $42. I managed to negotiate to $32. The kids have gotten as low as $20 to LGA and they have also parked at the gate during mass exits and had signs saying $10 per student to LGA.
    Hope that helps.

    More of a bystander than an insider :shake:

    We've used them many times and found them to be reliable and kind.
    ((don't use yellow cabs (nope nope nope). also, Friendly Cab was not so "friendly" to 2015's this past year ))
    A typical rate from LGA to USMMA is approx 42-48 dollars- If you have a student with you, they will give you the cheaper rate. If you make your appt prior to your trip, that will also lower the cost. Best of luck to you.
