PORT AUTHORITY AND MTA ANNOUNCE FREE LAGUARDIA LINK Q70 SERVICE DURING THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY

Date: Nov 17, 2017
Press Release Number: 212-2017

LaGuardia Link Q70 bus provides convenient connection to New York City Subway and Long Island Rail Road

Beginning Friday, November 17 through Sunday, November 26, the LaGuardia Link Q70 bus will be free to help reduce roadway congestion during the busy holiday week.

Travelers using LaGuardia Airport during this 10-day period are urged to allow extra time and take mass transit to travel to and from the airport, as ongoing construction and an increase in Thanksgiving holiday passenger traffic may create roadway delays at and near the airport.

The Q70 bus, MTA’s LaGuardia Link, runs from the 74th St. and Roosevelt Ave. subway station, and provides connections to the 7, E, F, M, R subway trains.

Nearly 368,000 passengers are expected to use LaGuardia during the Thanksgiving Holiday, with travel peaks expected Friday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, Nov. 26.

The Port Authority has established an onsite Traffic Command Center to monitor and manage airport traffic conditions and communicate conditions through regular updates via social media and Laguardiaairport.com.

Founded in 1921, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey builds, operates, and maintains many of the most important transportation and trade infrastructure assets in the country. The agency’s network of aviation, ground, rail, and seaport facilities is among the busiest in the country, supports more than 550,000 regional jobs, and generates more than $23 billion in annual wages and $80 billion in annual economic activity. The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16-acre World Trade Center site, where the 1,776-foot-tall One World Trade Center is now the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. The Port Authority receives no tax revenue from either the State of New York or New Jersey or from the City of New York. The agency raises the necessary funds for the improvement, construction or acquisition of its facilities primarily on its own credit. For more information, please visit http://www.panynj.gov.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is North America's largest transportation network, serving a population of 15.3 million people in the 5,000-square-mile area fanning out from New York City through Long Island, southeastern New York State, and Connecticut. It drives the New York regional economy by opening up countless job opportunities for millions – jobs that are miles from home are easy to get to with our subways, buses, and commuter trains. And after work, the network enables them to get to leisure activities: music, theater, cultural events, sports, and shopping more varied than anywhere in the country. MTA subways, buses, and railroads provide 2.73 billion trips each year to New Yorkers – the equivalent of about one in every three users of mass transit in the United States and two-thirds of the nation's rail riders. MTA bridges and tunnels carry more than 297 million vehicles a year – more than any bridge and tunnel authority in the nation. For more information, please visit
