NY: transportation from laguardia to times square

I was thinking of purchasing shuttle service from Laguardia airport to my hotel in Times Square using a company named SuperShuttle - the price listed online is $17 (tax prob not included) Has anyone used this company before? Can anyone suggest something better? Maybe taxi? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

I would not suggest taking the shuttle, it will take a LONG time, as the shuttle stops at several locations.

A taxi will not cost much more and is door to door service.

There is also bus service to Manhattan that comes into the Port Authority which is around $12 and takes you right to Times Square, without lots of stops.

Just ask at the information booth where to get the bus or just walk outside the terminal for a cab.

Have a great time while you are here.

You need to factor in the number of people you're transporting too. Usually the only way a shuttle is cheaper (or almost as cheap) is if you are alone.

DO NOT take the Super Shuttle. It stops at several different hotels and you end up wasting an hour or more in NYC traffic bouncing from one hotel to another.

For one person it's easy to take the shuttle to Port Authority and walk from there.

For 2 or more people a cab will cost no more than the Super Shuttle.

Take a cab. The Super Shuttle in NYC sucks big time.
