Default JFK to Mount Kisco

Can someone tell me the best way to get from JFK to Mt Kisco? I am thinking on taking the train but where in the city would I catch it to get me to Mt Kisco?

You can take Metro North to Mt. Kisco. Check out the East of Hudson line:
MNR Schedules

Metro North leaves from Grand Central Station. To get there from the airport, I would recommend taking the NY Airport Service bus to Grand Central from JFK: New York Airport Service Transportation - JFK- LGA- Manhattan It's very easy.

If you wanted to do a train the whole way, then you could take the Air Train from JFK to the A/E line:
MTA - Airtrain JFK: Make the Connection. From there you could take the A/E to 42nd St - Pt Authority, then the 7 to Grand Central.

I personally would take the bus to GCT. Someone else might offer better options.

I would cab it. The cab would take appxly a lil' over an hour; depending on traffic. Otherwise, you're just going to be schlepping all over the place and get there in over 2 hours!

Here is a link that you can get directions from via mass transportation (click on get directions and then click on bus icon

I agree on cabbing it. Depending on how many luggages you have taking the train will be a nightmare. I believe you get a flat rate when you take a yellow cab from the airport to your final destination. You can also try Carmel and see what their rate is online.

A cab might be more expensive than a reputable car service, as fares to Westchester are calculated differently. The bus to GCT and then MNRR is pretty easy, actually. Mount Kisco then has local cab service if not being met by vehicle at the station.

Let me put this in the right sequence for you and add more details to help you:

1. Take airtran (link below) to Jamaica Station.
2. At jamaica Station take the E train towards the city. Take it the Lexington Ave/53rd St station in Manhattan. ONLY take the E Train headed towards the city.
3. From the Lex/53rd St station, transfer (free) 1 stop to the downtown #6 train to Grand Central Station.
4. At Grand Central Station, take the Metro North (Harlem Line) towards Mount Kisco.

Oy. Its going to be a pain. I did a google and found a limo service from JFK to Mt K and they charge 80 bucks.

NY Airport Express has bus service to Grand Central for $15: New York Airport Service Transportation - JFK- LGA- Manhattan

It may not be faster, but it's definitely easier than making 2 transfers (AirTrain->(E)->(6))

Here are the Metro-North fares: http://mta.info/mnr/html/planning/fares/TicketFares.pdf

It's $14.25 during rush hour and $10.75 off-peak (remember to buy the ticket before boarding, unless your train is about to depart. In that case, just pay the extra fee).

Here are the schedules: MNR Schedules

Click on the Harlem Line schedule for either the weekday or weekend, whenever you are traveling.
