Where in New Hyde Park?

Probably the best way to go would take the Q46 from Union Turnpike and transfer at 188th Street to the Q17. You could also take the Q27 but it might be more crowded with kids going to Queensborough Community College in addition to the high schools.

Travel time should be about an hour.

I'm assuming you're going to be headed to downtown Flushing in the vicinity of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue?

Driving to downtown Flushing can be a pain with all the traffic. You could drive to any of the major streets that have buses going to Flushing if you want to avoid going on more than one bus.

There is no Subway in New Hyde Park. Driving should be ok, since Union Turnpike is a major street that will get plowed fairly often in the event of a massive snowstorm.

Just take Union Turnpike all the way down. The traffic moves pretty fast especially that time of day. I used to live in Flushing near Queens College and I would go to a martial arts school near the Burlington shopping center on Union Turnpike. It only took about 15-20 minutes. Driving is faster but keep in mind the parking in Flushing is terrible unless you plan to put your car in a parking lot.

From NHP to Flushing

1. Take the Ronkonkoma Branch from New Hyde Park to Woodside (45mins)
2. Switch to a Port Washington Branch train to Flushing (15mins)
