MTA Tickets- where to purchase at LGA (Delta)?

Hello,
Is there a place to purchase MTA tickets (Day tickets) in the Delta terminal at LGA? The last time we visited we had to purchase them in the main terminal.

Thanks for your help!

I think they're sold at any of the news stands (Hudson News) in any of the terminals.

McLaurie,
Thanks... we will try the "Hudson News" inside the Delta terminal when we arrive. We were in NYC a few months ago and had to go to the main terminal to purchase the tickets. This was not a big deal but it did add a few extra minutes onto our travel time.

Have a nice day!

Update:
We flew into LGA Tuesday AM and went to purchase our MTA bus/subway tickets at the Hudson newspaper stand downstairs near baggage claim but they were sold out. We decided to catch the bus right outside bag claim and pay the $2.00 each (change only accepted)and then purchased a day pass at the subway stop. We caught the Q33 bus to Roosevelt Subway station (last stop for the bus)in Queens. The entire trip from catching the bus at the Delta terminal, subway ride and arrival into Manhattan (Times Sq.) was exactly 1 hour and it was super easy. When catching the bus at the airport there are plenty of room to sit which makes it an easy ride into Queens subway stop.

For our return trip the next day we reversed our trip and took the subway back to the Roosevelt Station and walked right out of the station onto the bus back to the airport. The return trip took about 50 minutes in total.

This trip was easy... we only had 2 bags between the 3 of us as we were only in NYC for a quick overnight (shopping a Broadway play that night). We did see other people with larger pieces of luggage so it must be a common trip for locals and residents as well.
