Need HELP with NYC public transportation.

Jump to last reply

I need the best way to get from Port Authority in Manhattan ( think it's around 42nd &8th ave) to East 98th street and Madison ave. I have a 1:00pm appointment. I will be taking the express bus from central NJ at 8:55am and arrive at 10:30am in the city so allowing plenty of time for traffic jams, etc. There is also a 9:55 bus arriving at 11:30am but I feel one hour and a half to spare is cutting it close. What do you think? Should I take the early bus or the 9:55am bus? What is the best way to go from Port Authority to 98th street? I would be willing to shell out the cash for a cab since I would like to cut down on walking distance for my mom. What do you think the cab would cost? A rough estimate? How about a bus? It is okay if it's slow, I will take the early bus from NJ and have two and a half hours to get to my appointment. I am going crazy with all of this, please help to narrow down the best way to go!
Thank You in advance for your help.
