I arrived at LaGuardia at 5:15p, peak rush hour. The Uber pickup spot was clearly marked, but the gridlocked traffic made that seem like not a primo option. The taxi line had at least 300 people in it. The Airporter bus was just about to leave, one seat left at $15, and it was headed for Grand Central Station. I grabbed the chance, and the bus let me off right in front of the Grand Hyatt.
No brilliance here, just an ability to grab an opportunity that fell into my lap. 🙂
