3. Train to the Plane/JFK Express
This route ran as a premium fare super-express from 57th Street-6th Avenue to Howard Beach-JFK Airport from 1978 to 1990. It was shut down due to low ridership as most passengers preferred to ride the more frequent and cheaper A-train. With the recent renovations and closures at LaGuardia Airport, more travelers are opting to fly through JFK due to its tourist and local friendly accessibility. This increase of travelers on the E and A trains is certainly noticeable around rush hour, when valuable space is taken over by huge groups of lost tourists and their piles of luggage. Bringing this route back to the system would provide travelers with an easier means of getting from the airport to their destination with less inconvenience.
