Yellow Taxi fareGelber Taxi Tariff
We' ve got a couple of taxis in New York and we generally just pick them up off the road - there's also one that usually sits right in front of the motel - very convenient. It would also be a warning not to plan a lot of extra work - depending on the hour of the morning, of course, as we learned from our own experiences that the metro is generally faster - point to point - than taxis.
JFK's lump sum tariff between JFK and any point in Manhattan is valid in both direction. Fare is $45.50 + toll (if any) plus tip; anticipate it will be between $58 and $60. Unlike places outside train yards, taxis in New York are usually not found at taxi ranks.
Notice that you can only call an unmanned taxi - which you can tell by the number it has on the middle roof.

It is to be expected that there will also be an additional tolling. Keep in mind that you can make savings by bringing the JFK AirTrain / LIRR package directly from the New York Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan to your MTC.
