AirTrain service at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, which New York-bound travelers use as an alternative to New York's JFK, will be suspended starting May 1 to repair the 6.3-mile rail system. That means you won't be able to hop on the AirTrain to get to a rental car agency or connect with other transit to Manhattan.
Shuttle buses will be used to help passengers get from terminal to terminal and to connect with Newark's Penn Station, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey said. It also suggests fliers "consider getting dropped off and picked up at the airport" -- and to expect delays.
"Customers using shuttle bus service are strongly urged to allow extra time and be prepared for possible delays," the statement says.
Now free shuttle buses will take passengers between terminals and to car rental agencies, parking garages and other on-site spots. Fares are required for buses that go to and from Newark's Penn Station to connect with other transit options.
