How to transfer form Laguardia to Stewart Newburgh Airport?

My daughter and I are departing Stewart Newburgh Airport at 8:30pm in August. We had tickets on United arriving at 11:30am at Stewart Newburgh but was just notified that the flight time was changed to be arriving at 10:00pm. If we were to get airfare to Laguardia what type of transportation and how long would it take to get to Stewart. Getting an airfare to Stewart is getting expensive and aggravating! Any help will be appreciated.

LGA to SWF is about an hour and halfs drive, your best bet would be a rental car.

Do a search in the NYC forum, there have been a few recent threads about transportation to/from Stewart that have the all the options.

I'd just use public transport, you don't say what time you are at LGA but there are plenty options now and the train NYC-SWF was quick and well priced, probably quicker and cheaper than flying by the time you allow for 2hrs at LGA for security & check in.

Are your flights on separate tickets? If not, you should be able to get rerouted to your final destination.

I just, for fun, put it into google maps. The distance is OVER 70 miles. At this moment, due to traffic it would take you 1 ¾ hours. Who knows what traffic would be the day you plan this adventure. I would want to leave 3 hours of travel time plus the time needed to be at the second airport for recommended advance time. I would never recommend this

Jessica- I post regularly on the NYC forum. There are semi regular discussions about JFK to LGA and reverse. Stewart is NOT regularly discussed because it is NOT someone would ever recommend. (unless you come a day early and spend a night)

I am guessing that due to Norwegian starting to use SWF as a base for cheap flights to Europe that this question will come up more regularly.

e.g. you can fly to Edinburgh from under $150 one way

Unfortunately googlemaps doesn't have the public transport options available unlike elsewhere, however as Ronaldo says, getting to / from SWF has been discussed before and will probably appear regularly now.

It couldn't get any easier if they tried, you can even buy 1 ticket in advance which for later today is $25 and takes 2hr20 on the hudson line. Just search from Laguardia to Beacon - job done - they are both served by the same provider. here's the search page http://www.mta.info/mnr

Here is details on the hudsonline

There is also now a direct bus service to suit DY's flight times which takes 1hr20 mins (appx) and goes to NYC port Authority bus terminal. Cost $20 Here's the timetable

As linked in post #3 SWF public transport options

And, all LGA public transport options

And yes, I'm bookmarking this thread for future use ;-)
