Press Release Number: 74-2007
In a continuing effort to improve airport access, the Port Authority has introduced valet parking at John F. Kennedy International Airport, one of many initiatives announced earlier this year as part of a $34 million program to enhance customer care and services at the agency’s airports.
The valet parking service, which began this week, will be located adjacent to the Lefferts Boulevard AirTrain JFK Station and will be available around the clock, seven days a week. Customers will simply drop off vehicles and get free AirTrain JFK rail service to their passenger terminal. The cost is $36 per day, plus $18 for every additional 12-hour period thereafter.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey operates many of the busiest and most important transportation links in the region. They include John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty International, LaGuardia and Teterboro airports; AirTrain JFK and AirTrain Newark; the George Washington Bridge and Bus Station; the Lincoln and Holland tunnels; the three bridges between Staten Island and New Jersey; the PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) rapid-transit system; the Port Authority-Downtown Manhattan Heliport; Port Newark; the Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal; the Howland Hook Marine Terminal on Staten Island; the Brooklyn Piers/Red Hook Container Terminal; and the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan. The agency also owns the 16-acre World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
The Port Authority is financially self-supporting and receives no tax revenue from either state.
