“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you New York, New York.”
-New York, New York by Frank Sinatra
Make it anywhere? If it involves leaving the airport and making it into the city promptly, I highly doubt that this would be the case….
So what’s all of this talk about?
“NY airports rank last in transit access, study says“ according to Crain’s New York.
(Thanks to Kim for sending this one in!)
Based on a study by the Global Gateway Alliance, JFK Airport ranks last and LaGuardia ranks third to last “in mass transit accessibility compared with 30 of the world’s busiest airports“.
In the survey, airports are graded on a scale of 0 – 100 based on “transit user’s total travel time, cost, mode of transport and number of transfers”.
Kennedy Airport tied for last place with Denver, each only scored a 30. LaGuardia and Newark tied for third to last (along with a few others) with 40 points.
The purpose of the Global Gateway Alliance is “to advocate for improvements to the region’s airports“.
Spain’s Madrid- Barajas Airport topped the list, scoring a 95/100. The highest ranked airport in the US is Atlanta’s Hartfield-Jackson Airport.
