Huzzah, the Air Train at JFK opened yesterday. Mayor Bloomberg said it was "great," even though the ride was so bumpy that he lost his balance (is he sure Pataki didn't push him). And as Gothamist expected, the AirTrain Challenge was undertaken. The Challenge is figuring out which is the best way to get to JFK Airport: By taxi or subway/Air Train or LIRR/Air Train. The NY Times' verdict after their unscientific experiement: LIRR to Air Train is the fastest way to go.

The Post interviews people about the pros and cons of taking a taxi, bus and subway to the airport.
