The Q70 bus to LaGuardia usually waves costs for holidays, but now Governor Hochul has directed the MTA to do so year-round! The bus, also known as the “LaGuardia Link,” takes passengers from the 74 Street-Broadway/Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue subway station straight to the airport, making it easy for New Yorkers to get there via public transportation.
In the past, there were certain weekends and holidays when the bus was free to encourage travelers to use public transportation and help ease traffic during busy travel days. Now, starting Sunday, May 1, it will be free all year long.
Today, @GovKathyHochul announced that the Q70 SBS LaGuardia Link bus will be free of charge to all riders beginning May 1.

“While we continue working to create a world-class transit option that’s worthy of a whole new LaGuardia Airport, we’re taking action right now to make it easier to get to the airport by making the Q70 bus service free for all riders starting May 1,” Governor Hochul said.
This not only adds cash back into riders’ wallets, it serves as an attractive, cost efficient, and greener option to travel to LaGuardia while we work on longer-term solutions.
The bus runs 24/7, transporting passengers every 10 minutes to LaGuardia Terminals B, C, and D non-stop from the 74 Street-Broadway/Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue subway station (, , , , & subway lines) — and it has luggage lacks. It can also transport LIRR riders to the airport from Woodside Station.
