New York Airport Service is a private bus company that provides transportation between New York metropolitan area airports and Manhattan. The service is meant to provide a middle ground between the cheaper, but slower forms of government-owned public transportation (MTA Regional Bus Operations, New York City Subway, or Long Island Railroad) and the quick but pricey taxicabs (which generally reach Manhattan for a flat fee near $50). Scheduled stops are at John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, New York Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Various Manhattan hotels are also served through reservations. New York Airport Service held a permit with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the operator of the airports, until January 2011 allowing it to operate express motorcoaches between the airports and Manhattan. It no longer holds that permit, but continues to operate service to and from the airports through sister company GO Airlink Shuttle using vans.
On January 1, 2011, Golden Touch Transportation of NY, a division of Veolia Transportation, was awarded the contract from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the New York City Department of Transportation to provide express bus services (branded "NYC Airporter") to and from Kennedy and LaGuardia airports previously held by NYAS. While NYAS can no longer use motorcoaches on their services, it now uses small vans from sister company GO Airlink Shuttle on its routes.
