Transportation

Subway: 
The closest subway stop to John Jay College and the Hudson Hotel is at 59th St. Columbus Circle. Take  subway 1, A, B, C, or D to 59th Street & Columbus Circle, or N, R, Q to 57th Street & 7th Avenue. Also see NYC Subway Map & Schedules

Airports: 
If you are arriving at JFK, LaGuardia, or New Jersey’s Newark International Airport, taxis are the simplest means of transportation to the John Jay campus. However, they are also the most expensive: $45 (plus tip) from JFK, $55 (plus tip) from Newark, and $25 (plus tip) from LaGuardia.

An alternative and economical route would be to take an airport shuttle from JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark airports to the Port Authority Bus Terminal or Penn Station for approximately $25 round trip (rates vary, please see links below). From Port Authority or Penn Station, you can then reach John Jay College by subway (fare: $2.75), a taxi (approximately $10-15 from Port Authority to John Jay College), the bus (from Port Authority, take the M11 going uptown, located at West 43rd St. and 10th Ave.: fare: $2.75) or walk (2 long blocks and 17 short blocks; walking time: approx. 20 minutes).

Walk to the 8th Avenue Subway (blue circles on the signs); take any Uptown train except the E train to 59 St. The C is on one platform, the A is on a different platform, so you have to pick one.
Walk to the 7th Avenue Subway (red circles on the signs); take an uptown #1 train to 59 St.
Upstairs on 8th Avenue itself (one way northbound) take an M10 or M20 bus (the "M" means "Manhattan", so almost every bus has an M in front of the number). Get off at 58 St. or 59 St.

Some trains also arrive at Grand Central Station, especially if you are travlling by the Metro North trainservice.

Bus Station: 
If you are coming by coach, you will most likely arrive into Port Authority (42nd Street between 8th and 9th Avenue):

By Subway Take #1, 9, A, B, C, D to 59th Street & Columbus Circle - walk west to Tenth Avenue between 58th & 59th Streets. Some coaches and buses arrive in other places in New York however, so please make sure you check where the drop-off point is.

Taxis: 
There are plenty of other modes of transportation that will get you around:
 
Yellow taxis - Simple! You can hail one on the corner (If the number of the cab is lit on top it means it is unoccupied, look for these cabs), or you can download the app “Arrow” and with the simple touch of a button; you’ll have a cab within minutes.
 
Uber and Lyft - These are two other apps that you can download for a black car service. With both of them you can choose the size of the vehicle you need as well as an estimated fare for you ride. Also, you can opt to ‘share your ride’ with a fellow New Yorker, this option provides a set price that is a little bit cheaper than if you were to ride alone. There is also no tip needed for Uber, it is all included in the price quoted.
