Flat Fare from John F. Kennedy Airport The Taxi & Limousine Commission is conducting a "Flat Fare" program for trips from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Manhattan. The flat fare is $45.00 plus any tolls. The meter will not be turned on and the night surcharge will not be added. If passengers request multiple stops, the flat rate of $45.00 will be collected at the first stop in Manhattan, and the meter will be turned on for the remainder of the trip. The metered fare should be collected at the last stop, from the last passenger.
