Free LaGuardia Link Q70 bus service is in effect through Feb. 20 to alleviate holiday traffic

By Bill Parry

Travelers heading to LaGuardia Airport can ride the Q70 bus for free until Thursday, Feb. 20, the Port Authority announced.

The free service is being offered in partnership with the MTA to alleviate roadway congestion during the President’s Day weekend.

The LaGuardia Link provides non-stop service linking the main terminals of the airport with subway and Long Island Rail Road hubs in Jackson Heights and Woodside. The Port Authority is expecting more than 370,000 passengers between now and Monday and is encouraging travelers who arrive by car to park in the new Terminal B Garage, which contains more than 2,400 parking spots.

All travelers are advised to check with their carriers in advance to ensure flights are departing on schedule, and allow an extra 90 minutes to get to the airport.
