The July 4th travel weekend has officially begun, and with 43 million people expected to travel this weekend, its safe to say there will be crowded roads and airports. New York City will be no exception as we host the 40th anniversary 4th of July fireworks show during one of the most exciting weekends to be in the Big Apple.
Many of you will be relying on GO Airlink Shuttle to pick and drop you off at the airport this weekend, and don’t worry we will be there. This weekend may require a little extra patience as our drivers experience traffic delays and overcrowded airports. A few things you should be aware of:
- Airport Construction: Both LaGuardia Airport and JFK Airport are currently going through some heavy construction. This is causing delays within the airport, for both arrivals and departures. More specially, JFK Airport Terminal 5 is seeing delays up to 45 minutes once you are on the airport property. For arrivals, GO Airlink is doing out best to get you in a van, with our friendly drivers in a timely fashion. We will get you to Manhattan safely as you relax and cool down in our comfortable vans. For departures, GO Airlink has planned extra time while dropping you off to account for the heavy delays within the airport. Please feel free to give us a call at (212) 812-9000 with any questions about your pick up, or if you want to be picked up earlier.
- General Traffic: As we mentioned above, this is a very heavy road traffic weekend. Please have patience as our drivers try their best to get you to and from your locations in a timely fashion. In situations like this, the main goal is to drive safely and keep our customers as comfortable as possible.
- Have Fun: Traffic is just a small piece of your weekend! Although that hour long delay might seem like forever, its really just a small party of your thrilling weekend in the Big Apple. There is plenty to do this weekend like double decker bus tours or planning out the best spot to see the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks spectacular.
Thank you for your patience and enjoy your weekend! if you have any questions at all, please feel free to give our customer service team a call 24/7 at 212-812-9000. Happy 4th of July!
