LGA to Bk/Qns/Man for $15 with Via

Via just announced a new "LGA Connect" service that offers shared rides from LGA to anywhere in Brooklyn, Queens, or Manhattan for $15 (for solo travelers). Additional travelers to the same destination are $5 each. Looks like they may charge some minor taxes on top of that.

While the Q70 and subway are still a better value for people going to areas well served by the subway lines that run from Jackson Heights, this is a great option for folks in far-flung parts of Brooklyn or Queens. And it also looks like you can book a whole vehicle for $30 (plus tax) by booking it for 6 people.

Looks like it's only available from Terminals C/D right now, though.

That's a great, new option.

But don't forget that on Thursdays and Fridays, it's often possible to get a twelve-hour, one-way rental from Budget from LGA to Manhattan or Brooklyn Heights for $14 or less, with taxes and the first tank of gas included. And, if you have status with AA, you can earn 1,000 or more AA miles for an extra $1.30, or so.

The problem with renting a car at LGA these days is that -- due to the ongoing construction -- the rental-car shuttles operate only to/from Terminal A (the Marine Air Terminal), so getting to the rental-car offices from Terminals B, C, or D currently requires taking two different shuttles.
