Montauk to JFK - Wednesday in August and NYC - Montauk

Hi All

2 females are travelling from NYC to Montauk on a Monday and thinking train will be best way to go.

But any other options or better ways? or details? We are coming from Times Square and staying at Atlantic in Montauk.

Then we need to get to JFK on the Wednesday for a 4pm flight back to Australia. so need to get there by about 130pm. What is best way? rather not drive ourselves if don't have to.

thanks!

For the Manhattan to Montauk trip also look at the Hamptons Jitney.

For the return to JFK the LIRR is probably easier as you can connect from the Jamaica LIRR station to the Airtrain.

Be aware that without a rental car staying in Montauk can be very restricted.

Look at the schedules for the LIRR to see how to meet your flight. Jitney is possible but you must buy tickets for a specific bus in advance since they almost always run full. And then you need to cab from the Queens drop off to JFK.

I just checked my app for the LIRR and you would need to leave Montauk on the 539am train which would arrive in Jamaica at 817 am So you would basically lose the rest of the day waiting at JFK for your flight. Not ideal, to say the least.

Thanks All - definitely looks like the Hampton Jitney for Montauk to JFK. Flight is 6.10pm actually.

It looks like you will have to leave Montauk at about 11 am to get to the connection stop for the airports at around 2:30 in the afternoon (and then allow at least 30/40 minutes to get to the Airtrain connection for JFK). Th next bus out will not get you to the JFK connection until the time you need to be at the airport - so not giving you any time to get to the airport or to allow for any traffic delay.

Or just get a private plane back to Oz.
