New York, US
LaGuardia Airport has four terminals: Terminal A, B, C, and D, with direct access from the Grand Central Parkway.
Terminals C and D are connected airside by a 650-foot bridge; for other terminals, take a taxi or use the free shuttle buses coming around every 10-15 minutes.
Route A serves all terminals from 04:00-23:30 and
Route B serves Terminals B, C, and D from 06:00-02:00.
Complimentary 30-minute Wi-Fi service is available throughout the terminals.
LaGuardia airport is centrally located in the northern part of the New York City borough of Queens.
Ignore offers of rides from solicitors in the terminal – this is illegal and many solicitors are unlicensed. Head to the ground transportation information counters, located on the lower baggage claim level. Fares to Upper Manhattan range from USD 29-37, plus any tolls for peak time surcharges (USD 0.50-1).
The NYC Airporter is a shuttle bus that departs approximately every 30 minutes and stops at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central Station, and Penn Station. The fare is USD 14 and the bus stops right outside of the baggage pick-up area at each terminal. Travel times vary, but average journey time is 90 minutes to Manhattan.
The M60 bus travels from all LaGuardia terminals to Upper Manhattan via Astoria Blvd in Queens and West 106 Street and Broadway. The bus also connects to the N and Q subway trains, the 4, 5, and 6 trains, and the Metro-North Railroad. The fare is USD 2.75 (with MetroCard or exact change); single-ride tickets cost USD 3. Passengers using the MetroCard are allowed free transfers at buses and subways.
There are lounges for travellers in Terminals B, C, and D.

Ordering is being done over ipads installed at every table. So after ordering enjoy reading the newspaper or surf the web.
